Dr Eva opens up about ‘stressful’ time that led to split from husband

Former Operation Transformation star Dr Eva Orsmond has opened up about her split from her husband in her new RTE show.

The Dancing With The Stars star got emotional during Dr Eva’s Great Escape while talking about her brief split from husband Wyatt.

The couple ended things in 2016 but reunited two years later and rekindled the relationship, but it was still a hard time in each of their lives.

The documentary sees the Finnish doctor and her husband save their relationship by taking on a huge design project after buying a Portugal hotel in 2017.

The hotel had been abandoned for five years and Eva had hoped to transform it into a ‘luxury weight loss’ facility.

The first part of the show was filmed in 2017 and as Eva spoke of the years before, she began to get visibly emotional.

She said: ‘This whole thing of going now to Portugal, I almost feel my life is starting again.’

‘It’s been a little bit stressful the last few years with the boys doing their leaving certs and life has been so busy.’

‘So I feel like we’re going back to what we were doing when we were living in South Africa because I suppose we have so much more time.’

‘And the last 17 years has been so busy. While it’s been so exciting I just think that sometimes life is just too much work and it’s all the time go, go, go, that you don’t really put enough time and effort into the relationship.’

And it wasn’t just Eva that had a thing or two to say about the relationship and its breakdown, but her husband Wyatt who hails from South Africa also gave his take on it.

He said: ‘The separation happened last year kind of September/October, anyway somewhere around there. There’s always been a little bit – the love wasn’t totally dead.’

Speaking to YOU magazine Dr Eva explains: ‘I know that this a situation where you see the romance right in the beginning – it’s like when you get a new puppy and after a little while you get stressed picking up all the poos and the romantic side of it goes out the window.

‘But there have been amazing moments, too,’ she adds. ‘Times when you go out at 7 o’clock in the evening for a swim, times when you get to sleep outside in the summer, and moments where you can head down to the local markets during the day.’

Despite the hardships the couple has faced and the great highs, Eva and her husband found leaving their Wicklow home the most difficult.

She continued:’I don’t do regrets. Like every family home, there have been sad times but three have also been fights and arguments and sad times so in one way, of course, it’s sad because this house is finally the way I always wanted it.’

‘But like myself and Wyatt as well we’re the type of people that we always sort of want a new challenge. This is almost like getting to know him in a new way and that’s very exciting.’

Pick up YOU magazine this Saturday with the Irish Daily Mail for a full interview with Dr Eva and see part two of Dr Eva’s Great Escape on RTE One at 9.30pm on Sunday 26 January.
