Take That star Howard has hinted that he and his wife have been going through tough times in a Valentine's Day post.

Howard Donald has been married to his wife Katie Halil for four years, and spoke of how much he loved her while explaining that they've had their ups and downs.

He said he'd experienced the "trials and tribulations of marriage", and revealed having kids had been "truly testing".

The 50-year-old singer's fans praised him for being so honest (and romantic) in his post.

Howard, who also has two children with Katie, wrote on Instagram: "Trials and tribulations of marriage and kids are truly testing.

"We weather through the storm together and try to keep each other warm from the elements and through this sleepless period in our lives.

"I tell u every day and not just on valentine I love you!!!"

Howard will soon be heading out on tour with Take That bandmates Gary Barlow and Mark Owen, as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations.
