In April, Shane revealed that he had moved out of the family home he shared with his wife and their two daughters, after ‘hugging each other’ during the nationwide coronavirus lockdown.
Singer Shane admitted that ‘you figure things out about relationships’, and expressed his hope that their split was just temporary, but admitted that he ‘doesn’t know God’s plan.’
Speaking on Paul Dannon’s Morning After podcast, the singer said: ‘We’ve had a tough time and are going through a tough time right now in this separation talk.’
Shane said: ‘I think it’s a healthy thing to talk about relationships and how we as a married couple have to work together’
He said: ‘I’m not even in my family’s house right now because he and I were at each other’s throats. It was not a good time or a good place.’

Talking about the lockdown with his wife, Shane said: ‘You find things out about relationships and it can be very difficult. It can be a struggle.’
The couple’s joint TV appearance comes after MailOnline exclusively revealed that Sheena was joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Cheshire last month.
Sheena had a successful career as a backing singer, performing with the likes of Westlife, Blur and Miss Dynamite before turning to reality television.
Regarding his appearance on the ITVB show, Shane said: ‘Sheena and I have been together for almost 20 years, that’s a long time.

‘She gave up on her career in music and drama, so she was going down that road of acting and stage plays and then we had kids and decided to be a mother, a wife, and take care of the house.
‘I am all over the world and I have never been around the world in everything I do. Now that life has given us a little break up, Sheena had this opportunity and I am really happy for her.
‘It has also given us a new lease of understanding with each other.’
Sheena said: ‘Shane has been my biggest champion in all of this. If he hadn’t been pushing me to do it, I wouldn’t have done it. He’s been amazing. He’s about to go, “It’s your time, let it go.”
