During an interview with the Evening Standard in 2017, Sharon and Tim opened up on how their bond grew after communicating on Twitter.

Sharon said of retweeting Tim’s kind words: ‘My cringe-level is too low – I don’t know if that’s an Irish thing. But Tim’s tweet was the only time I’ve ever retweeted ’cause it was such a fan moment for me.’

While after she had come to see him at a gig in Manchester, Tim said of their growing friendship: ‘We’ve had a little journey of meeting up at music festivals, and Sharon came to see us play in New York, and then I got to go on the set of Divorce. ‘

Sharon shares daughter Amer, 13, and Sadhbh, 18, with former husband Tim, while Tim has a son with electronic artist Nik Colk Void.
