According to emerging reports, well-known and much-loved television presenter, Nick Knowles, is facing into a tough year following the announcement that his marriage to wife Jessica Moore has come to an end.
The couple, who first met in 2009 before tying the knot in 2012, revealed that they had called time on their relationship and insisted that, despite the decision, their 18-month-old son Edwin remains their biggest priority.
The DIY SOS presenter and Jessica, who were once subject to media scrutiny on account of their 25-year age gap, made their sad announcement through a joint statement with The Mirror newspaper.
Laying bare their decision for the public and press, they wrote: "It is with sadness that we announce we are separating. Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son, Eddie."
Nick, who is the proud father of four children - three from a previous relationship - once credited 28-year-old Jessica with bringing a sense of serenity to his life, insisting she had made him a "calmer, happier, far nicer person."
The couple and their baby son have been living in Spain since 2014.
