Mark, 32, says: ‘I lost my wife six months ago. She committed suicide.
‘She was perfect in every single way. She was beautiful, she was funny, happy, honestly like the fairytale. But she just had these things that ate away on her – low self-esteem and anxieties.
‘I’m still feeling lost with it and don’t fully understand. I don’t think I ever will.’
At the inquest, the coroner heard Mrs Peart was found hanging by her husband Mark at their home in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, on April 11.
In a statement which was read at Doncaster Coroner’s Court by coroner’s officer David Copley, Mr Peart said he was working a day shift at Manvers Fire Station on April 11.
He said: ‘I arrived home at about 7.05pm and the house was in darkness. I discovered Chelsey.’
Mr Peart, a firefighter, attempted CPR until paramedics arrived but Chelsey was pronounced dead at the couple’s home.
Mrs Peart, lived in Rotherham with her husband Mark, and taught at Rawmarsh Community School and also ran a textiles business
Mrs Peart, taught at Rawmarsh Community School and also ran a textiles business, was signed off work by her GP Dr Biing Hen on a number of occasions dating back to November 2017.
Helen O’Brien, headteacher at Rawmarsh Community School, described Mrs Peart as a ‘positive role model for students’ and a ‘very, very talented textiles teacher’.
It is not the first time the popular show has revealed the tragic backstory of a contestant.
In the last series Danny Cross revealed his wife Nicola was killed as she tried to protect her children when a man broke into their Hertfordshire home in 2015.
The 40-year-old was forced off the show with a knee injury, but paid tribute to his children for helping him get through the tragedy.
He told the show’s instructors at the time: ‘I could have crumbled in that situation. I just had to keep going for the kids. I think that without them I would be in a very different place, I’m sure of it.
‘Even though they miss mummy, they are happy kids.
‘It gives you an inner power to know that you can cope and you can deal with things. Not a lot fazes me now.’
