Its not yet clear why Andrea is on the cleanse – but it seems the new diet is proving tricky for the couple, who married in 2016.

In a caption, Andrea explained to fans exactly what was going on. She wrote, So… for reasons that will be explained, I have to go on a gut cleanse. Not a detox, or a weight loss for January thing, its to re-set a very poorly system that needs help.

There was absolutely no point starting this in December for very obvious reasons, so it made sense to begin in January when the rest of the world is a bit more forgiving towards someone having to cut lots of things out of their everyday diet.

I have to do this for 2 months. Today is DAY 2. This has very nearly BROKEN US!! Nick is very sportingly doing it with me, but he is struggling even more than me – probably because he doesnt HAVE to do it!

In a video on her Instagram, Andrea and her husband Nick were seen chatting to the camera, explaining how tough they were finding their new, 2-month diet plan.

Nick said, “Im struggling…Im trying not to swear!”

He went on to joke with Andrea, saying, “Why dont you cleanse and I just eat loads?”, to which she desperately replied, “This could break us if I have to do this on my own, because you said youd do it with me!”

Nick then responded, “I will do it with you, but I may kill someone”, prompting a rather concerned look from his wife!
