Chrissie Swan says she’s ‘learning to be by herself’ following split from partner Chris Saville after 15 years

Chrissie Swan has spoken about ‘being alone’ following her split from long-term partner Chris Saville in June last year.

The 48-year-old revealed in an Instagram post on Tuesday that she has been ‘spending a fair bit of time alone’ and this has given her ‘internal peace’.

‘Learning to just be by myself has been a great challenge and as it happens with these things: my new greatest joy,’ she began.

‘I have been spending a fair bit of time utterly alone as much as I can and I can’t even express the internal peace I’m getting from it. It’s a weird kind of exhilaration and joy from knowing all I need is myself.’

Chrissie went on to say: ‘Most of my life – probably like yours – is full of wonderful people and lots of jobs and lots of noise. It’s nice to get a little bit of down time?’

She said she recently went apple picking alone, spent time in her vegetable patch and has also been enjoying walks by herself.

‘If you’re craving time alone – don’t be scared or feel guilty – try and carve some out. It’s a bit fantastic,’ she said.

According to the Herald Sun, Chrissie and Chris ‘quietly separated’ in June last year but are still living together so that they can co-parent their three children.

‘It’s not conventional but it works for them,’ an unnamed friend told the publication, before adding: ‘They’ve never been happier.’

TV star Chrissie and carpenter Chris are parents to sons Leo, 13, and Kit, 10, and daughter Peggy, 8.

Although the former couple never married, Chrissie revealed back in 2016 that little Leo had been pressuring them to tie the knot.

‘You would think it would be our parents pressuring us, but it’s him,’ she told TV Week at the time.

Around the same time, she told Today Extra: ‘He goes to a school where all the parents are married. But me and my fella never got around to it.’
