The TV presenter was married to Graham Quinn until 2013 and has previously said the divorce "rocked my whole existence".

Klass, 38, told The Daily Telegraph's Stella Magazine: " I am a single mother. I provide for my girls, I feed them, I look after them. I think there are a lot of women out there in a similar position. You think it's better to be with someone - but the reality is it's not better.

"You think it's a catastrophe that the relationship has ended, but it isn't at all.

"In the first few months, I hated those moments when the girls were in bed and I was on my own. I worried that all decisions were mine.

"It took me a while to realise that, actually, I love that. Me and my girls are a unit, we are strong, we are completely and utterly bonded."

She added: "I decided to 'own' being a single mother, to challenge the stereotype. I'm like a cockroach. Stamp on me, but you won't destroy me, I'll keep coming back. I don't know any other way to be.

"And if you have children and you are the one who is the breadwinner, the tooth-brusher, the dinner-maker, the bag-packer, you just have to keep on going."
