She told The Mirror: “I usually have my routine set for me, whether Strictly’s being filmed or I’m on tour, so it was hard at first to adjust and find a new structure and focus to keep me going throughout the day.

“I never get to have that much time at home because of my work schedule, so spending time with David and our three dogs has been quite a good thing.

“I’m staying busy, staying positive and taking it day by day.”

Karen went on to say the pair have been trying to stay occupied for the sake of their of their physical and mental health.

“One of the main things that we’re trying to do is exercise and stick to a plan that fulfils us physically and mentally,” she divulged.

“Thanks to the internet, you just need access to Instagram, Facebook or YouTube and there are so many cardio workouts to choose from.”

Karen lives with her beau and their three rescue dogs.

In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk earlier this year, she said she is keen to rescue more dogs and potentially have her own children in the future. 

She said: “David and I, we love having our three little rescue dogs around, whenever he’s working, I’ll take care of the dogs and whenever I’m working, he’ll come.

“He surprised me in Birmingham with our three little dogs.

“I’m up to three now, but by the time 2020 ends, I’ll probably have another seven.”

On having a baby in the future, she joked: “I have three babies already!
