“All divorces are deeply unpleasant”

The GMB star spoke of his divorce in an interview with Daily Mail in 2009. He claimed he was able to remain on good terms with Marion.

He said: “The divorce was a pretty horrendous experience – all divorces are deeply unpleasant.

“The day Marion and I got divorced, I said, ‘You know what? We can both go away feeling awful about this, but let’s never mention it again’.

“I don’t regret it because these things happen, but I’m pleased that we’ve stayed good friends, because it’s important for your kids.”
