Appearing on today’s edition of This Morning, 37-year-old Nigora slammed her critics and said they were simply jealous.
She explained: “We don’t pay attention. We are really happy. I don’t pay attention to any of the comments in the newspapers or social media.
“So I look at them and think, ‘Their loss,’ and they can sit back and be jealous. I’m really happy with the man that I love.”
She added: “I mean, look at him,” as she pointed to the entrepreneur, 68, sitting next to her as they spoke via video link from their villa in Portugal.
“How can I not be happy?” Nigora said to This Morning hosting duo Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
The interview with the newlyweds set social media alight as many viewers took to Twitter to discuss the couple.
