Singer Curtis Stigers has finalised his divorce from his wife of 18 years, and he is loving life as a single man.

Stigers split from his partner Amy, the mother of his teenage daughter, in 2011 and they subsequently divorced, but the I Wonder Why hitmaker has since realised he prefers living on his own.

He tells U.K. Tv show Loose Women, "I am fairly newly single. It's fine. Getting divorced is an awful thing... Don't get married! I'm sorry but right now that's where I'm at. I really like living alone. It's worked very nicely, it makes sense.

"It was a very sad thing... (But) I'm through to the other side... It's a change. It's interesting. I like living alone, it's quiet."
