She said that the pair, who have four children together, “wanted different things”.

Fiona added: “There were no major fights, and nobody else was involved but it was a case of not being on the same page any longer.”

“I think I hung on for as long as I did because when my own parents broke up, that was very public, and there was a lot of hurt involved there.”
