JOSIE Gibson has moved her ex Terry back into her home to help look after their baby Reggie after struggling to parent alone in lockdown.
The pair broke up four months after the tot was born with the former Big Brother star, 34, declaring: “I’ll never go back.”
But speaking on Loose Women today she said a reunion could be on the cards now, saying: “We’ve never got on so well.”
She explained: “He’s one of those people you can’t live with but can’t live without. We were really scared because he’s severely asthmatic – he finds it hard to breathe at the best of times.
“We waited for three weeks and none of us had any symptoms. On the fourth week I learnt about the viral load – so I couldn’t take Reggie to the supermarket any more, so I said: ‘You’re going to have to move in.’
“So he’s moved in and it’s only taken a pandemic and a year and a half and we’ve never got on so well.”
When asked if they would get back together: “We still say in separate rooms but yeah, I love him to bits. When you’ve got something like this, you realise little things are so trivial.
“You realise your family – big things – are important. The things we used to argue about seem so trivial.”
Asked if Terry could continue living with them after the crisis, she replied: “I hope so. I really, really hope so. Seeing him and Reggie together is just golden. It’s so lovely.”
Last year Josie revealed she and Reggie were forced to ring in 2019 in a hotel in the wake of a bitter row over shoes calling it the “worst New Year’s ever”.
She told New magazine that tensions built because he was living in a caravan outside the home while she did night feeds.
The star explained things came to a head over the festive period, saying: “He’s got OCD and just after Christmas, he went mad about too many of my shoes being in the hallway.
“So I kicked off and said, ‘Well, we’ll go them!’ And he went, ‘Alright’, and bagged up our stuff. So Reggie and me headed to a hotel.”
Josie added: “I’d never go back now. I need somewhere secure for me and Reg. I never wanted to be a single mother, obviously, but there are things you can’t let go.

“So I hope I will smash life as a single mummy. Lots of other women do it.”
Josie has never revealed Terry’s surname or appeared at a public event with him.
The three of them are at her cosy home in Bristol, regularly posting pictures of what they have been up to.
