"Without any disrespect towards the radio industry, I would not say it is my preferred medium, but I am absolutely loving it these days and that comes from being part of a show that has enjoyed incredible continued success," Ritchie said.

"In my heart I am still very much an actor and some people might say my best acting work now happens between 4pm and 6pm every day across the nation. It is lovely that my radio career goes from strength to strength, but I would also hate the television industry to forget about me."

For years Ritchie and Webb's relationship had been subject to scrutiny in the tabloid magazines and newspapers, however it is understood that strain had been placed on their relationship following Webb being charged with drink driving back in April.

Webb was charged with drink driving while his licence was suspended after he was pulled over by police after allegedly running a red light near the home he shares with Ritchie. He is yet to enter a plea.
