Frankie Bridge revealed last week that planning her husband Wayne’s 40th birthday festivities have proven somewhat tricky amid the global pandemic.

But the singer, 31, seemed to have pulled it off on Wednesday night as she treated her footballer partner to a swanky dinner at London eatery Sexy Fish.

And Wayne looked like he’d had a whale of a time as he and his pop star wife were spotted leaving the venue.

Wayne grinned as he held Frankie’s hand while they crossed the road to head to a waiting cab.

He wore a loosely-buttoned white shirt over khaki slacks and white tennis shoes.

Frankie stunned in a russet strap sundress with nude heels and a creamy purse.

She swept her raven locks back and showcased a bronzed complexion, offset with chunky gold hooped earrings.

Contrary to their swish night on the tiles, Frankie admitted in a recent interview that lockdown suited her and husband Wayne because they ‘don’t like getting dressed up’ anyway.

The singe revealed to The Mirror that she and her footballer spouse never go anywhere ‘posh’ on date nights because of this, and that they spend lockdown in their pyjamas.

‘Before lockdown, we would just go to the cinema or for dinner,’ Frankie said of her and Wayne’s nights out away from sons Parker, six, and Carter, four. ‘We’re quite lazy, we don’t really go into London or do anything that posh.

Married life: The pair have been married since 2014, having dated for three years prior to that

‘We can’t be bothered getting dressed up!’

Former Chelsea star Wayne turns 40 this week, and Frankie admitted that it has been tough to plan the festivities with the ongoing global pandemic.

‘I’ve got a few surprises planned. It’s been stressful because of Covid. I would normally have found something ages ago, but I’ve had to hang back to see what the rules are,’ The Saturdays songstress admitted.

‘It’s stressful anyway trying to plan someone’s birthday so it has been an interesting one, but hopefully he’ll be happy!’

The pair have been married since 2014, having dated for three years prior to that.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline last week, she said: ‘We’re used to spending a lot of time together. Wayne is retired. I’m home more than I used to be.

Frankie said: ‘It’s actually been really nice. I was so busy before lockdown, I was dreaming for a day off. It’s been nice to slow down and spend time together. We’ve really enjoyed it’

‘When the novelty wore off, we were like, ‘this is a lot of time at home.’ But now, we’ve found our groove. You don’t have to spend all day everyday together even though you’re in the same house. 

‘It’s actually been really nice. I was so busy before lockdown, I was dreaming for a day off. It’s been nice to slow down and spend time together. We’ve really enjoyed it.’

In an interview to launch Frankie’s latest project – a partnership with Ella’s Kitchen that sees her write her first children’s book – she said: ‘By the time the kids go to bed and all that stuff, we’re shattered and ready for bed. 

‘We ended up doing TikToks and stupid things like that to keep ourselves entertained.’

Frankie has been open in the past about her experiences with depression and anxiety, previously revealing she suffered a breakdown during the height of her singing career with The Saturdays.

While she found lockdown relatively easy, the star admitted she did have anxiety about it coming to an end.  

She said: ‘It wasn’t too bad for me. It took away any of my anxieties. Not leaving the house or not stressing about any social anxieties or anything like that.

‘My anxiety was more about coming out of lockdown. Change is hard. I am someone that suffers from anxiety and there will be people who won’t suffer from it usually that will at the moment. You just have to be kind to yourself right now. 

‘You just have to accept the rules that are being given. If you stick to those, I think you feel safe and you have to accept that things are put in place to help you feel safe but also, be easy on yourself.’

She added: ‘It’s hard to kind of get up and have a point to each day. To be forced to slow down like that, it takes a while to ease into it.

‘I think it was hard. But after a while I just thought, this is the time to break the routine. We’ve been forced into this situation.’ 

Frankie told how trying to home school her children was ‘quite stressful’ for the first few weeks but said the kids ‘accepted’ what was happening. 

She said: ‘It was quite stressful at the time but we kind of just relaxed a bit. They were alright.

‘They kind of just accept things as they happen and now they are ready to see friends and things like that. Now they really appreciate it when we take them out somewhere fun and exciting again.’
