Julia Morris says she thinks about leaving her husband Dan Thomas ‘once a year’

Julia Morris admits she thinks about leaving her husband Dan Thomas ‘once a year’ – and has considered getting her own flat to have a break from their 18-year marriage

She’s the ever-hilarious TV presenter who has been married to her husband, Welsh comedian Dan Thomas, for 18 years.

And on Saturday, Julia Morris candidly admitted she thinks about leaving her doting partner at least ‘once a year’, in an interview with Stellar magazine.

The 52-year-old, who shares daughters Ruby, 14, and Sophie, 12, with Dan, admitted the duo sometimes get in fiery arguments that have led her to briefly ponder moving out of the home they share together.

‘Once a year we’ll have an argument and I’ll think, “This is bulls**t, we don’t need to live like this,” and he’ll feel the same way,’ she said.

‘We’ll get into a bit of a blame game where you can’t do anything right and they annoy the living daylights out of you, and you just imagine having a flat by yourself where you can sit on the couch all week.’

The duo have been through many a challenge during their almost two-decade long marriage, including a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy and Dan’s battle with cancer – of which he’s now clear.

Julia – who has just released her own ‘anti-self help’ book –  admitted that the pair’s arguments don’t last long, and before long they’re back to married bliss.

‘I can’t imagine being without him and alone,’ she added, noting: ‘If we split up, I couldn’t do the admin.’

Julia recently revealed how she and her family were brought closer together during Melbourne’s strict COVID-19 lockdown last year.

In an interview with TV Week, the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star said the family learned how to communicate with each other more efficiently after fighting during the first six weeks.

‘There was something, after that first six weeks, where, I guess, we just found a new way to live,’ she said.

‘If we got any sort of storm-off, the girls would come back straight away and just go, ‘OK, well, the reason I did that was because of this,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, right – totally get it.’ It was amazing.’
