Jodie Marsh splits from husband James Placido

Jodie Marsh has announced she has separated from her husband James Placido.

The 37-year-old documentary maker took to Twitter and Instagram on Monday (18.04.16) to tell her fans her union with the hunk is over after just eight months.

Jodie posted the same statement on both social media accounts, which read: "It is with sadness that I bring you the news that James and I have separated. I will be keeping all the dogs with me. I won't be taking calls on the matter as I'd like to be left alone. I thank you in advance for your sensitivity on this subject..."

Jodie and James tied the knot in secret in Barbados last August after a whirlwind romance and bought a Rottweiler dog called Rosie together.

Before bringing back Rosie, Jodie and James' house was already home to three cats and four dogs.

Jodie previously told BANG Showbiz that James was the only man she had ever loved more than her pets.

In happier times, she gushed: "Before James I'd never met a human that I liked more than my cats and dogs. It's true and he knows, and he knows he's only just past them!

"He jokes when we're in bed and says, 'It worries me that there's such a fine line between me and the cats and dogs. Like, if it comes to it you might swing back and choose them.' And I'm like, 'No, no!' But honestly no man had even come close to the love I feel for my animals before him."

And it was only a few months ago, Jodie insisted she planned on holding on to her 'Mr. Right' after waiting her entire life to find him.

The former glamour model said: "I'm loving being married and it took me long enough to find a decent man so now I've got him I'm definitely hanging onto him. We've definitely been making up for lost time since getting married."
