During an episode of her Jane McDonald and Friends show last year, the singer told the audience that she asked her long-term partner to reassure her as she felt self-conscious in the bedroom.

Explaining all, she began: “My partner Ed and I have been together for over 10 years now ladies and gentlemen,” which prompted the audience to cheer.

“Now, I’m not sure if that cheer was a congratulations or sympathy,” she added humorously.

She went on to say: “Being in a couple has its benefits, it’s nice to know that you’ve always got someone on your side and to offer gentle words of encouragement.”

“For example we were in the bedroom the other night…” she continued before receiving a cheeky cheer from the audience.

“No, no,” she chimed. “I was feeling a bit self-conscious because you know what it’s like girls, you get to a certain age, I was feeling a bit under the weather.

“And I’m looking in the mirror and I’m thinking, *huffs* ‘Oh, my eyes are looking a bit puffed up’.”

“Everything is sort of dropping,” she continued before she pointed at her breasts and added: “These especially.”

She then jokingly added: “They are a bit like spaniels ears lately, it’s just not how it used to be, they’re not as pert as they were.”

Recalling what she said to her fiancé, she said: “I said to him, ‘Can you just give me a little bit of encouragement?’”

Demonstrating his response, she continued: “He said as quick as a flash, ‘Your eyes are brilliant’.”

As the audience laughed, she flippantly added: “What a charmer!”

Back in 2011, Jane revealed the reason why they pair were yet to walk down the aisle.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she joked: “This must be the longest courtship and engagement in history.

“We first met when most people in this country weren’t even born!”

The former Loose Women star went on to say that the duo are in “no rush” to tie the knot.

“Ed’s been so patient,” she divulged. “He’s fantastic, adorable and we’re having such a great time together. We are not rushing to get married.”

“I love this one more than I ever loved the others and I don’t want to jinx it.

“In any case, I can’t afford to get divorced again.”

Jane has been married twice in her lifetime, firstly to a man named Paul in 1986.

Following this, she tied the knot with her former manager Henrik Brixen in 1998, but they divorced four years later.
