Earlier this month, Alexander and Carlotta reportedly took a break amid the marriage rumours.

According to a report in The Sun, Carlotta took off her wedding ring and flew back to her native Canada.

A source told the publication: "Carlotta and Alex are taking a break from their marriage and are trying to work out what they want from the future.

I'm looking forward to what the future will bring.

"Isolation is giving them a lot of time to think and both are with their families.

"Alex’s friendship with Maura was the first proper crack in their relationship. But now they’re at breaking point."

Meanwhile, their marriage problems started when Alexander reportedly started "confiding in Maura about their personal problems".
