Nick Knowles splits from wife

Nick Knowles has split from his wife.

The 'DIY SOS' presenter, 53, has announced he and his spouse Jessica Rose Moor, 28, have gone their separate ways following three years of marriage but have vowed to stay amicable for the sake of their 18-month-old son Eddie.

Releasing a joint statement to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the couple said with heavy hearts: "It is with sadness that we announce we are separating. Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son Eddie."

The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Rome in September 2012 after meeting three years earlier when Jessica's parents asked Nick to help kick-start her career.

Two years after their nuptials, the pair up sticks and moved to Spain in a bid to live a healthier lifestyle.

Despite being slapped with criticism regarding their 25-year age gap, Nick - who already has three grown-up children, Charles, TJ and Tuesday from his previous marriage - has always praised Jessica for sticking by his side.

He said late last year: "I'm still very much in love with Jessica and we're very much a couple. Our relationship as man and wife is very important to us. But on top of that we now have this blissful layer of being Mum and Dad and it's wonderful."
