‘I miss my dad’: Chloe Madeley shared a sweet throwback snap hugging her father Richard as she lamented not being able to see him amid the Covid-19 crisis in a post on Thursday
Lamenting not being able to see her father amid the coronavirus crisis, Chloe wrote in the caption: ’12 was good to me….I miss my dad.’
Chloe has spent lockdown with husband James Haskell, and she recently admitted she’s adopted a more relaxed approach to diet and fitness during the pandemic with his help.
Chloe told Closer Magazine how she had been getting in shape for a big photoshoot in June and was in the middle of a ‘fat loss phase’ when lockdown kicked in in March.

As she was in the midst of her fat loss, James noted that he wanted to use their free time to enjoy more time together and have ‘date nights’, leading Chloe to realise that it was unrealistic to try and maintain her strict diet during lockdown.
After giving up her strict routine, the TV personality said she now doesn’t ‘care’ about what she looks like and instead focuses on just being ‘fit, active and healthy’.
Earlier this month Chloe’s mother Judy Finnigan discussed unknowingly being pregnant with daughter Chloe on her wedding day and her heartbreaking miscarriage in a new interview.

Judy, 72, and husband Richard Madeley, 64, opened up about their 1986 wedding day and the surprise pregnancy with Chloe as they spoke to Giovanna Fletcher on her Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast.
Presenter Judy said: ‘We got married as soon as we could, you were getting divorced and so was I so we had to wait for all that legal stuff to be out of the way but we got married in 1986 and our sort of relationship had started in 1983 and become stronger and stronger.
‘We would of probably of got married in 1984 if we could’ve done but we got married in 1986 when our first child Jack was 6 months old.
‘So we went ahead as I was in my mid 30s. Well by the time we got together I was beginning to be in my late 30s and I knew I wanted more children and so did you so we sort of went ahead and had Jack.

Richard added: ‘ And we thought at our wedding day at Manchester registry office that, it was just family there, no friends, just family, we thought that there were just the three kids there, there was Tom and Dan and Jack.’
Judy woke up the next morning feeling ‘physically different’ and it was then she realised she was pregnant with Chloe – just months after welcoming Jack.
Richard said: ‘So we just had our three kids there and the morning after the wedding day we were having breakfast in this hotel, married now, rings on fingers and all the rest of it. And I always remember saying to Judy, we both remember this, do you feel any different?
‘Cos we had been living together for 2 years by then, I said do you actually feel any different now that we have both put a ring on it? Does it make in here you feel any different?

‘And Judy said I actually woke up this morning feeling physically different umm, I actually felt like I had gone some kind of physical change, almost like when I was pregnant with Jack.
‘And we would later discover that Judy was in fact already pregnant with Chloe so actually all 4 of them were at the wedding which was great.’
Judy added: ‘I look at Chloe as she was a sort of accident and she was conceived only a few months, when Jack was only a few months old.’

Former This Morning host Judy also emotionally discussed the tragic miscarriage she suffered at four months pregnant, before becoming pregnant with son Jack.
She said: ‘I went for a scan and they just showed the baby heart had stopped beating and that was terrible, just really awful, and I had to go into labour anyway and it was just awful.’
Richard added: ‘Yes, I think, as the father as it were, as the man involved, I think it is very important to recognise that however it may affect you, it is going to affect the mother who has lost the child a lot more.
‘Because she was carrying the child and she has gone through the experience of either a miscarriage or an induced miscarriage because the baby has died in the womb and it has to be worse for her, I don’t think there is absolute equivalence.’
