Why did Ruthie Henshall and Tim Howar get divorced?

Both parties have kept fairly quiet on the circumstances around their divorce.

Ruthie spoke to Hello! magazine in 2010 and insisted the split was amicable, revealing that he moved just five doors down to stay close to their daughters, Lily and Dolly.

She said: "I can’t believe the fairytale has ended, but our relationship had run its course. I prefer to think of it as a new beginning for both of us.

"We never argue and we are friends.

"The whole thing is about our children being happy and as long as we are happy in their company, which we always are, there is no animosity and no nastiness.

"There is no third party involved – we just came to the end of the road. We went to couple’s counselling because when you have two children you don’t just give up.

"Both of us worked very hard at it but we are actually becoming better friends apart."
