She previously suffered horrific injuries after an accident with a horse left her face completely shattered and her arm broken in two places back in 2019.

The former model ended up in intensive care after a horse kicked her with both hind legs, with one hoof hitting her between the eyes and the other breaking her arm.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, the mum-of-two said: “I broke my cheekbone, my socketbone, my nose and many bones in my face so I now have plates in my arm and three or four plates in face and as well being left with a lot of scars, my face was quite deformed for a while and it’s never going to be back to what it was.

“It was not a pretty sight for a long time and we all just learnt to deal with it with a bit of humour. It was so bad, you just had to joke about it.”

Yvonne split from ex-husband Ronan in 2010, with the pair's divorce eventually being finalised in 2015, shortly before the singer's wedding to Australian model Storm Uechtritz, 40.

Ronan and Yvonne continue to amicably co-parent their three children, and the Boyzone star previously opened up about he tries to "remain calm" and "just get through it".

The 48 year old told the Irish Sun: “It wouldn’t be easy all the time — but you try for the children always to just remain calm and get through it.

“You’ve got to always remain in an adult state of mind so that you can deal with it. There’s times when I get very angry, very frustrated and you really have to bottle that, you’ve got to protect the children always."

Ronan shares son Cooper, five, and two year old daughter with new wife Storm, while Yvonne has been in a relationship with cinematographer Jon Conroy, 53, since 2012.
