The model and TV star said she was “terrified” when the couple’s son wandered off while they were out at a farm one day, and she ended up hitting Crouch and throwing her coffee at him.
Speaking on Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe's Lockdown Parenting Hell podcast, Clancy said she does not condone violence at all but that she was in a panic when they couldn’t find their little boy.

She said: “I went to the toilet. I was gone for one second. And I came back, he was just sitting there. I’m like, 'Where’s the baby?'
"We couldn’t find the baby anywhere. I was hysterical.
"He had escaped out of the contained indoor play area and was a mile down the road by lambs and a lake and everything. It was so scary."
"So I like, battered Pete in front of everyone in the farm," she added.
"I think I threw a cup of coffee on him.
"It was a nightmare.
"I am just so worried about anything happening to them and he is just so laid back, it is a joke!"
Clancy went on: "I threw the coffee and I punched him. I don’t condone violence at all but it was out of panic."
She added that she was "terrified" at the time.
The star married former footballer Crouch in 2011.
They have four children together – daughters Sophia, 10, and Liberty, five, and sons Jonny, three, and Jack, one.
