She was probably furious when her husbands secret 'sexter' pouted her way into the Big Brother house.
But what better way for Tess Daly to show who is boss than pose up in a sizzling photoshoot?
And the sweetheart of TV definitely proves she's the real star in this collection of sizzling snaps.
Look at me: Tess Daly shows who is the real star in this sizzling photoshoot
Forget the text messages, mother-of-two Tess, 43, proves in the flesh she is better than ever, and husband Vernon Kay is sure to be right behind her.
It was an embarrassing time for the northern couple, who have been married since 2003, when model Rhian Sugden, 25, was revealed as one of four women cheeky chap Kay had been sending explicit messages to.
The couple have two daughters Pheobe Elizabeth, 7, and three-year-old Amber Isabella.

After the pair's 'friendship' was exposed Kay, 38, issued a grovelling apology saying: 'I've been an idiot and I've let my family down.'
But since appearing on CBB Rhian has been at pains to distance herself from the relationship.
She explained onscreen: 'We spoke as friends. We were just friends – but we spoke too much. I never sent a sex text. I never sold a story.'

We were from the same area and I was in with his family and I knew his brother, but he admitted in the paper that he got drunk and sent sex texts to five girls.
'I've been proper screwed over. He admitted that he sent the text messages and yet I'm the one that has been labelled a sex texter.'
Rhian told fellow housemate Jasmine Lennard that she had been spat at and bottled in nightclubs even though she had done nothing wrong.

But perhaps Tess, who is preparing for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing, doesn't need words as these pictures prove.
And whatever Rhian says or does, Tess seems to be showing that she has the real star quality, without a reality show.
