Dr Dawn Harper splits from husband

'Embarrassing Bodies' Doctor Dawn Harper has split from her husband after 20 years of marriage.

The TV doctor and her husband Graham Isaacs - who have three grown-up children together - have called time on their relationship, with sources claiming it was just a case of the pair "drifting apart".

The insider told The Sun newspaper: "With Dawn's TV and media work and the kids growing up they have drifted apart.

"There's a feeling being a star has gone to her head and she's no longer the person Graham fell in love with."

Meanwhile, Dawn previously opened up about how heartbreaking it was for the pair when their youngest child Harvey was born prematurely.

She explained: "It was a very frightening time. On the one hand, I remember thinking how much worse it must be for mothers who don't understand what all the monitors do - I had worked in such a hospital unit, so it was less scary.

"But I also knew darned well the implications of numbers dropping or alarms going off. That wasn't nice. It made me much more empathetic with patients, and now when I see disabled children I think 'there but for the grace of God go I.'"
