But Pammie - who has two sons, ten-year-old Brandon and nine-year-old Dylan, with Tommy - has now quashed the speculation, saying: "My biggest concern has always been my boys - they are completely well adjusted, happy and thriving.

"Their dad has been in their lives in a productive but small way over the years. Like any other single mom I've tried to create a healthy example for my kids. That's why I realised early on that we are better off on our own right now, but I will work on my friendship, if nothing else, with their father who has admittedly made mistakes but adores us."
