The irresistible draw of charmers with a colourful past

In the rock 'n' roll business, theirs was considered one of the strongest partnerships.

So when Ronnie Wood left his wife of 23 years, Jo, in July 2008 it came as a big shock.

More shocking still was his instant new romance – with a striking 21-year-old Russian former waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.

Much was made of the age gap between the pair – there was some 40 years between them – but they remained together for 18 months until their split at the end of 2009.

Six weeks later, Ronnie was spotted cosying up with a brunette at a snooker tournament before starting a relationship with his current girlfriend, 29-year-old Brazilian Ana Araujo (pictured right)
