Tina, who is known for roles in Shameless and Brookside, married Paul in 2010.

She announced his death in a short statement on Wednesday, saying: "It's with total heartbreak I write this my husband Paul Chase Malone passed away... we are totally devastated."

His cause of death has not been revealed.

The pair had a daughter, Flame, in 2013 and celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary in 2023.

They were married for nine years before a brief separation in 2019 - reuniting just a few months later in February 2020. It came after Paul rejoined the army.
