Singer says she and Gavin are stronger than ever

CHARLOTTE CHURCH has laughed off persistent rumours she is set to split from her rugby player boyfriend GAVIN HENSON.

Reports last month claimed the former classical star, who has two children with Henson, 27, had kicked her longtime partner out of their country mansion in Wales following a series of rows.

The couple's relatives were quick to dismiss the stories, with Church's mother, Maria, blasting the reports as "ridiculous".

And now the 23-year-old singer has defended her relationship with Henson, insisting they'll be together for years to come.

Charlotte gushed: "We laugh about it. But we are concerned about the future, when our children are older and other kids might say things to them like, 'Oh we hear your mum and dad are splitting up.'

"But our families know there is no truth in the rumours and although they get cross that the media invents things about us, I think they are used to it by now."

Church and Henson are parents to 20 month old Ruby and baby Dexter, who was born in January.
