The star “Strictly Come Dancing” was married to Kevin between 2015 and 2018 and admits it took her 12 months to fully come to terms with their breakup.
Karen said, “I would have loved to fight for it. It took me a year after we broke up to actually let go of him.
“It took me a long time to cut the umbilical cord that I connected to him. Because it was connected for so long and on a completely different level than my first marriage, because that marriage was what I was always looking for. “

Kevin, 38, began dating TV star Stacey Dooley in 2019 after winning “Strictly” together the year before.
And Karen admits that she “learned a great lesson” from her breakup and says that the experience made her a “stronger” person.
On the podcast “The Divorce Club”, the 38-year-old dancer said: “Huge lessons for me. Because of that breakup and what I was going through emotionally, physically, and in public, I got stronger and realized what I really needed to work on, and that was me.
“I had to work with him for two or three years after we broke up and it was hard because you can see how much love you have for each other and the respect you have.”
Kevin previously admitted that he “didn’t know how to work” while they broke up.
Kevin talked about his alcoholic lifestyle and said, “I didn’t know how to deal with it. It affected my work, it affected my and Karen’s relationship. I didn’t know how to function as a person. “
