Mark & # 39; The Beast & # 39; Labbett has confirmed that he is still with his wife Katie, 26, despite her acknowledgment earlier this year that she had cheated on him with a younger man.
The Chase star appeared on Tuesday's Loose Women, where he was asked about the status of his five-year marriage, admitting that they were going through a difficult period & # 39 ;.
The news comes just four months after Katie confirmed that the couple had split up and found love with a man named Scott Bate.
Still on: Mark & # 39; The Beast & # 39; Labbett has confirmed that he is still with his wife Katie, 26, despite her acknowledgment earlier this year that she had cheated
& # 39; As with many relationships, you are going through a difficult time. We work our way through it & # 39 ;, Mark told the loose women.
& # 39; A newspaper offered us a sum of money and we kindly refused that. We are quite private, there are no pictures of our son online and I will not name him until he is old enough to make the decision. & # 39;
Denise Welch wanted to confirm that the couple is still together where Mark flashed his wedding ring.

Mark and Katie, who share a son, live in a £ 600,000 home in Hereford, but the professional quizzer hinted that his busy schedule was a problem, revealing that he only has one Monday off until Christmas thanks to his work on both The Chase in the UK and Australia.
His busy life, however, led to a dramatic weight loss when he admitted: “It's a joy to run a little one around, I don't have time to eat! I came to 25 stones, at my heaviest I was 29 stones. & # 39;
In May, Mark & # 39; s wife Katie confirmed that the couple had divorced, just weeks after the couple had denied plentiful claims of problems in paradise with their age difference.
In her candid chat with The Sun, she said: & Mark and I have been talking about divorce for a while – we've been floating for a while. He works a lot and that is difficult. Many people think that this is the age difference, but we don't see that as the factor. & # 39;
Shock: Mark insisted that he wanted to keep the details of their relationship private after reports had cheated Katie with a man who turned up Scott Bate in April
She added that she had found happiness with a new man, Scott, who explained: & it's more that we don't have any mutual friends, and our lives are just very different. I met Scott by accident, on a night out, and we just clicked. It wasn't intentional, it just happened …
& # 39; But Mark has always known – I was honest from the start. He knew that I was going out and who I saw. He was incredibly understanding. If it were someone else, it wouldn't matter, but because Mark is in the spotlight, gossip …
& # 39; We remain good friends and he is happy for me to have met Scott – and it would be good if he met someone else. So I want to correct the record now, because I am fed up with speculation. I want us all to be able to continue our lives. & # 39;
In a twist in their love story, Mark and Katie are cousins - something they realized three years after their wedding in 2014.

Mark said in an earlier appearance on Loose Women: & # 39; We didn't know at the time – it was one of those things that happened. & # 39;
The couple did not know at all that they were cousins when they started dating. Katie & # 39; s father and Mark & # 39; s father are first cousins, meaning that the pair are second cousins.
Mark said at the time: & # 39; I was a single man for a long time, so I got used to the idea of being alone. Especially as a bachelor we can become quite selfish, you always get used to what you want to do.
& # 39; As some of my friends have indicated, the major challenge for me is to learn to adapt to being with someone else. & # 39;
Mark and Katie made the decision in Arundel Castle, West Sussex, in October 2014.
