Saira Khan’s husband has insisted he’s NOT allowed to sleep with other women, despite his wife’s recent revelation.
Speaking on Loose Women on Wednesday, the presenter – who first shot to fame in 2005 as runner-up of the first series of The Apprentice – admitted that she’d become so disinterested in sex that she’d given him permission to have an affair.
But according to reports from MailOnline , her 51-year-old husband, Steve Hyde, has since denied the claims – insisting they don’t have any such agreement.
Seems like the couple have their wires crossed.
Following her appearance on live TV, Saira took to Twitter to explain she’d be expanding on her story during Friday’s show.

“Well this week has turned crazy! Time to share my whole story, Steve & I will be on 2mro’s @loosewomen 2 talk about whats really going on,” she wrote.
Meanwhile her comments were swiftly followed up by Loose Women’s official account: “So yes, @IamSairaKhan and her husband Steve are coming on tomorrow to chat about THOSE comments from yesterday!”
It comes after the Apprentice star announced the surprising detail about their sex life during an appearance on ITV’s Loose Women .
Saira, 46, opened up about her marriage of 11 years, and admitted that she has lost all interest in sex and avoids getting intimate with her other half.
Speaking frankly on the daytime show to her other panelists, Saira said she was “deeply embarrassed” that she had lost her sex drive and had even gone so far as giving him permission to sleep with another woman.

She made the surprising confession: “I’m 46, I have a busy life and have two kids. I am so lucky.
“We used to have a fantastic sex life. I still love my husband, we cuddle up and it’s lovely. We’ve been together for 11 years, but I’m not interested [in sex]. I don’t want to.
“I’ve lost the desire and I find myself making excuses from around 6pm. As soon as he comes home, I panic and start saying, ‘I’m so tired!’.

The panel heard similar confessions from viewers
“I’m embarrassed to say this but I said to him you can go with someone else if you want. I want to make him happy. He’ll kill me for saying this… Am I the only one?”
But agony aunt Coleen was on hand to reassure Saira that she had plenty of letters asking about similar issues from both men and women, which Saira seemed pleased to hear and hoped opening up about her problems helped others.
“Lately I just find I’m not interested I just don’t want to do it. I feel very embarrassed discussing it.”
