The one-half of Ant and Dec announced the news via his spokesman on Saturday, who said in a statement: "Ant is very sad to announce, that after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin".

After speculation the couple held 'emotional" crisis talks over their marriage, the couple have chose to split "to do the right thing for his health'.

Ant, 42, who has battled a prescription drugs addiction will split from his wife "to do the right thing for his health".

Both Ant and Lisa have asked for respect and privacy during this harrowing time.

'No further statement will be made'. "It hasn't happened overnight. They've been having problems for ages", following the news of the divorce.

Still, Lisa took to Twitter as recently as November to deny that she and her husband were "estranged".
