A statement posted on both their Twitter accounts read: “With great sadness we are announcing that we have separated. After many exciting adventures together over the last 18 years we have come to the end of our rainbow.”
“We are still great friends and will continue to support each other and raise our beautiful children together, living next door but one.” The couple have two children together, Woody Fred, 16, and daughter, Nelly May Lois, six.
In 2003 their marriage was rocked by news of Zoe’s affair with DJ Dan Peppe and the couple briefly split for a few months. Then last December Zoe was pictured having a drunken kiss with 22-year-old Tay Tay Starzh of boyband Franklin Lake and a Christmas party for TV show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
Speaking about the kiss later, Zoe said that her husband had laughed off the slip-up: ”He has always said he wants his gravestone to read 'Norman was a very patient man'. And that sums it up really!” she said.
