British comedian Jason Manford and his wife Catherine have called time on their marriage. The couple, who tied the knot in 2007, secretly split up last year, it has been revealed.
"Jason Manford and his wife Catherine have separated," a spokesperson told the Mirror. "The separation is entirely amicable and happened last year. They remain friends and their priority is the future joint parenting of their children."
A source added that the couple "simply grew apart in their marriage and after much discussion they decided to part".

Jason and Catherine are parents to three daughters. Their marriage was rocked in 2010 when he admitted sending explicit messages to a female fan on Twitter.
At the time, the comedian said Catherine was willing to give him another chance, saying, "Hopefully, me and my wife have another 60 years together. That is the most important thing."
Jason is currently gearing up for a year-long UK tour and has been signed up for a new ITV topical panel show.
