Former Operation Transformation consultant Dr Eva Orsmond has announced her split with her husband.

The celebrity doctor and her husband Wyatt have been married for 21 years and the couple have two children together - Christopher (19) and Evan (17).

The pair confirmed the news in a statement, issued "with sadness", today confirming the break-up and asking for privacy.

"We have been married for 21 years. We have had a great life together and are blessed with two wonderful sons. Now, with our boys grown up and making their own way in the world, Wyatt and I have decided to separate," the statement read.

"It is with sadness that I say these words, but Wyatt and I share a deep friendship and will always be part of each other’s lives; co-parenting our sons and continuing to run our businesses together. For the sake of our family, we won’t be making any other public comments about this."

Orsmond, who hails from Finland and South-African born Wyatt have avoided the limelight, only taking part in select shoots for magazines and she would selectively mention him in interviews, namely referencing him as her trusted counsel when decided to leave Operation Transformation in 2014.

Dr Eva co-owns the firm Dr Orsmond's Ectiva Health Products Ltd with Wyatt, which last year had profits of €987,559, and they run on a 50/50 basis.
