He tells The Sun: “After 13 years of a generally happy marriage my wife and I, Carla, have separated amicably.

“We have sadly grown apart over recent years and been living apart since earlier this ­summer.”

The duo married in 2002, after meeting when Carla entered a radio station competition to marry a stranger where Jeremy was a DJ.

Unsurprisingly, Carla’s relationship with prospective groom Greg Cordell didn’t go well, and shortly after it ended, she began dating the TV host.

Carla and Jeremy have three children together - Henry, Alice and Ava - and the split news comes just weeks after Jeremy made a revealing comment about his personal life on his ITV show.

When quizzing a guest about whether she had cheated on her partner, she declared: “Listen, I get sex from [my boyfriend] whenever I want. I don't need to go and get sex from someone else.”

Jeremy then responded: “Tell him then! I've had enough about talking about it. I haven't had sex for ages myself.”
