Jeremy Kyle 'amicably' splits from wife

Jeremy Kyle has "amicably" split from his wife.

The 'Jeremy Kyle Show' host has confirmed he and his wife of 13 years, Carla Germaine, have been living separately over the summer and have now decided to call time on their relationship for good.

He said: "After 13 years of generally happy marriage, my wife and I, Carla, have separated amicably."

The 50-year-old star - who has children Henry, Alice and Ava with Carla - expressed his "sadness and regret" at not being able to make the relationship work but insisted they will continue to provide their children with a "stable upbringing".

He's reported by The Sun newspaper as saying: "We have sadly grown apart over recent years and been living apart since earlier this summer."

The split comes after Jeremy - who also has daughter Harriett with first wife Kirsty Rowley - revealed earlier this year that their sex life wasn't what it used to be during a conversation with a guest on his show.

After the woman told him she didn't need to go to anyone else for sex because she gets it from her boyfriend whenever she wants, Jeremy replied: "Tell him then! I've had enough talking about it. I haven't had sex for ages myself."
