‘I just come home, there’s no note, nothing, passport, gone, clothes gone’

A caller on This Morning bravely discussed issues with her marriage, revealing that her husband makes secret trips to Thailand and sends money there.

The woman, who said her name is Julie, called up the show to get help during the Dear Deidre segment.

She revealed that her husband of nearly 50 years keeps making surprise trips to Thailand without telling her, and she’s discovered he’s been sending money to someone in the country.

She told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, as well as Deidre Sanders, that she can no longer cope with his behaviour.

“It’s normally on a Wednesday night he goes. I just come home, there’s no note, nothing, passport, gone, clothes gone,” she explained.

She added: “I’m 70 now…I just don’t know what to do.”

Julie revealed to Holly, Phil and Deirdre that hundreds of pounds have been sent to the mysterious person in Thailand, but that whenever she tries to bring it up with her partner, he just tells her it’s none of her business.

Holly was quick to make it clear that this is not okay while Phillip suggested that Julie’s partner might be cheating on her with a “man or a woman”.

Deidre added: “Of course what your husband is doing is your concern and funnelling out hundreds of pounds of family income – that is terrible.”

After the segment aired, many took to social media to encourage Julie to leave her partner.

One person said: “Julie, he’d be bloody gone if he was married to me. He can’t be going off to Thailand every 5 minutes then comeback to you when he feels like it.”

Another added: “I think we know why he’s going to Thailand Julie.”

A third said: “Julie, just change the locks next time. Or move.”

Someone else said: “It might be difficult at 70 but my God Julie. Locks changed next time he’s away. He’s an absolute d**k.”
