Megan – who recently launched her new business venture, Your Mindful Life – also revealed that she had to bend the truth slightly when explaining Shaun’s absence to their children, for fear of them spilling the beans about the former AFL star’s appearance on the show.
"So Rosie didn’t know, she’s a bit young to wrap her head around it," Megan said.
"River didn’t know for a while, we just said that Daddy had to go away and that he was going to an island to help build shelters which technically wasn’t a lie. I think he just assumed it was for a village.
"I had so many of his friends' parents going 'Where’s Shaun? Where’s Shaun, when’s he coming back? What’s he doing?'
"I think people thought we’d split up because I couldn't answer and I couldn’t lie properly -- we had to keep it super, super, secret," she said.
Following his shock eviction on Monday night, Shaun also revealed just how tough it was being apart from his family.
It was a bit of a strange one because I'm thinking to myself, 'Man, if I just went to tribal before I could be home with my family now instead of having to spend two and a half or three weeks in Jury Villa,' he explained to 10 Daily.
