Gemma Arterton finalises divorce

Gemma Arterton's divorce from Stefano Catelli has been officially finalised.

The former couple, who split in 2012 after two years of marriage, were granted a decree nisis during a brief hearing at the Central Family Court in High Holborn, London today (21.08.15).

The 'Tamara Drewe' star and her former Italian spouse did not attend the hearing.

According to court documents, obtained by Sky News, the duo separated on November 1, 2012 and the judge found the 'Quantum of Solace' beauty "entitled to a decree of divorce, the marriage having irretrievably broken down, the facts being proved being two years' separation by consent."

Gemma started dating French director Franklin Ohanessian last year, but she previously revealed her beau isn't comfortable with the attention surrounding their romance.

She said: "Franklin doesn't like or really want to be in the limelight, but yes, we are together. We met when I was filming 'The Voices' and hit it off. We speak in French and I regularly commute to Paris to be with him."

The 29-year-old actress previously admitted she isn't sure whether she will ever tie the knot again.

Asked about her marriage in 2013, she said: "It was a wonderful time and I have nothing bad to say about it. Even if they don't last relationships can enrich your life in some way and then you move on to the next part - it's all part of the process of living.

"I don't know how I feel about marriage; whether it's really necessary. If you are not religious, what does it mean? I'd always thought that - then I got married. And now I still believe in what I believed in when I was a child."
