The couple briefly split in 2013 but the 'Wall Street' actor has confirmed the pair's relationship is back on track again.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show, he said: "It can't be a one-way street. But I'm crazy about her. And yeah, I think every couple has their difficult times.

"The only problem is, as you well know, we're all in the public eye, and it tends to get a little more exposed than most. We're back stronger than ever."

The pair have had to go through some tough times recently including when the 70-year-old star was diagnosed with tongue cancer in 2000.

Addressing a group of doctors, the 'Ocean's Twelve' actress, 45, previously admitted she was left a "mess" after being told the tragic news.

She said: "I'm very happy to be here this morning with my husband. I mean that literally; I'm very happy to be here with my husband.

"I was a mess. I'll be quite frank, I was a mess. When I'm married to a man who has such a conviction for life ... he fights to make the wrongs right. For the first time he was fighting for his life."

Michael - who has been cancer-free since 2011 - and Catherine have two children together, 14-year-old son Dylan and 11-year-old daughter Carys.
