Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Rapper Professor Green and fitness guru Millie Mackintosh may have one of the most rock solid marriages in showbiz, but much like Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty - their successful relationship doesn't mean living in each other's pockets.

The couple wed in 2013 and are famously candid when it comes to discussing their romance, including the revelation that they went to counselling after a series of rows.

And while they're back on track these days, their hectic work schedules means they rarely spend quality time together and flew to Florence, Italy for a few days on January 30  - the only time they've spent together this year.

"It was the first time I had seen her properly in 30 days. We had seen each other like ships in the night, but we weren’t getting any quality time together," he told The Sun.

"It is good sometimes to have space, but it is also difficult when you miss someone for that long. It used to happen when I was touring. You would have a day off and try and have the best day of your life.

"But then you’d just start arguing. That is a relationship. The best way is a balance and being really clever with the time you do have together and making the most of that."

Green is currently hosting the UK version of Lip Sync Battle with Mel B, while Millie is enjoying a career renaissance post Made in Chelsea as a designer and best-selling lifestyle author.
