JANE MCDONALD has revealed what her partner Walter “Eddie” Rothe really thinks of her long stints away from home and whether he films her Cruising travel programmes alongside her.
Cruising with Jane McDonald began back in 2017 and sees her spend six months on the high seas. And now the singer has revealed whether her partner Eddie Rothe joins her on ship, and how he feels about the time they do spend apart. The 55-year-old, who has been in a relationship with the musician for over a decade, said she leaves him at home to film the popular Channel 5 offering. She said she treats it like any other job, and in her mind it would be odd for him to tag along.
In an interview with The Sunday Post’s In10 Magazine, Jane spoke candidly about their relationship and her life cruising.
“I spend six months of the year on cruises,” she commented. “Travelling the world with your mates, it’s such good fun and I hope that comes across.”
The former Loose Women regular continued: “Ed doesn’t come with me because this is my work.
“If I worked at a checkout I wouldn’t expect him to stand next to me, and he’s happy for me to go off and do these things.”
Jane then quipped: “I think he likes having control of the remote and being able to eat whatever he wants!
“I do make special time for Ed, though. I think you have to do that when you are away as much as I am.”
