Actor Christopher Eccleston Granted Quickie Divorce

Actor Christopher Eccleston has been granted a quickie divorce from his wife Mischka in a hearing that lasted just two minutes.

The former Doctor Who star was given a decree nisi on the grounds that the marriage had broken down due to her "unreasonable behaviour".

Neither the 51-year-old actor nor Mischka, 31, was present at the Central Family Court in London when District Judge Richard Robinson pronounced decrees for 21 couples. They were seventh on the list.

The couple, who lived in north London, were married in November 2011 and have two children, a son aged three and a two-year-old daughter.
