The show is a made up reality and in reality Alex is one of Daniel’s oldest friends.

But despite this, their competing business interests will appear in the show.

Rachel addressed her split with Alex and spoke to The Sun following her split from Alex.

She said: “It is very difficult to express the feelings because there are so many. It was really painful, really sad. It was the biggest decision we made in our life, with our children of course.

“I was afraid that the girls would have the experience I had. We got wonderful advice on how to talk to them. They know how much we love them and we’re not going anywhere.

“Our division is very friendly and that really helps. It’s only been the last two weeks that we haven’t lived together. That was definitely hard. We do it with love and respect, but it’s a process. It took a lot of navigation. We will screw up and make mistakes. But we give them credit and I feel so happy.”
