Chris Tarrant has agreed to pay his estranged wife Ingrid £12 million in an amicable divorce settlement - almost half his personal fortune. The couple, who split in September 2006 after 15 years of marriage - finalised the deal this week after 18 months of negotiations.

The package includes a £5.5 million lump sum and an extensive property portfolio. Homes included in the deal include the couple's £3.5 million mansion near Cobham, a £1.5 million villa on the Cote d'Azur, and their home in Esher, Surrey - also worth £1.5million. The couple's two teenage children Samantha and Toby will be provided for separately.

"Chris is pleased to have settled with Ingrid," says a spokesman for the Who Wants To be A Millionaire host. "This part of his life is over and he is pleased to have reached an amicable settlement."

Norwegian-born Ingrid said: "Yes, we have settled. I'm just happy to get my life back."
