Just hours after making the announcement the former Made In Chelsea star made an appearance at London Fashion Week in a stunning golden dress, but without her wedding ring. The Quality Street heiress attended the Naked Heart Foundation’s Fabulous Fund Fair, alongside her friends Daisy Lowe and Portia Freeman.
The statement of separation comes a week after the Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, revealed that he had only seen his wife once this year. Speaking to The Sun, the rapper said that they are both so busy working on their respective projects that they find it difficult to make time for each other.
In a bid to spend more time together, the couple jetted off to Florence at the end of January. "It was the first time I had seen her properly in 30 days," said the Read All About It singer.

"We had seen each other like ships in the night, but we weren’t getting any quality time together. It is good sometimes to have space, but it is also difficult when you miss someone for that long. It used to happen when I was touring. You would have a day off and try and have the best day of your life, But then you’d just start arguing. That is a relationship.
"The best way is a balance and being really clever with the time you do have together and making the most of that," he added.
