Eva Longoria and Tony Parker: The end of the match

The separation of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker has sent shock waves through the celebrity world. Until now they had been supposed to have one of the strongest marriages in Tinseltown.

Always beaming and wrapped around each other lovingly, the dimunitive actress and 6ft 2in basketball ace husband seemed to have scored a hit when they started dating.

Their introduction came in November 2004 just as the Latina lovely's star was on the rise thanks to her role as feisty Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives.

Eva went into the locker room at one of Tony's game for the Texas-based San Antonio Spurs with her sports mad father and he invited them both for dinner.
