Jill, 30, and her husband Derick, 32, exclusively told The Sun at the time they "hope justice is done" after Josh was arrested on two counts of child pornography.

Speaking for the first time since Josh’s arrest, Jill said: "We’re very sad about the whole thing, it’s horrible. It’s all very sad."

Derick added: "Obviously if there is anything there related to child pornography, we hope that justice is done. 

"I don’t think anybody supports child pornography.
