Frank told the Daily Mail ex-wife Amanda was « a fantastic support pillar » during her rehabilitation

He said: « Those close to you are paying the price too To say that Amanda was important during the years I was recovering would once again be an understatement She did a fantastic job righting the ship that was our family , which capsized after the attack

« She got us back on track There is no doubt that my injuries put a strain on our relationship, but our breakup was not about my disability

« After 22 years of marriage we were just separated We are still friends and I will always be grateful for what she did for me »

Frank is now dating BBC weather presenter Elizabeth Rizzini, after meeting her in an elevator at work
