Former Pop Idol star Darius Campbell has revealed that he and his wife Natasha Henstridge are getting divorced. Appearing on Monday's Loose Women, the 36-year-old revealed that the pair are "still friends" despite trying to end their marriage three years ago. "In the most bittersweet and wonderful way, we're dear friends," he told the panel. "We filed for divorce three years ago. I really meant what I said, when you stand in front of someone and you say I'm going to give you my life, you mean it. And if you don't, you shouldn't be in it, so get out."

The singer, who is currently starring alongside Sheridan Smith in West End musical Funny Girl, originally parted ways from Canadian actress Natasha in 2013, just two years after tying the knot. Although the pair never legally finalised their divorce, the former spouses remained good friends. The pair were together for seven years before they tied the knot in secret on Valentine's Day in 2011, and their only guests were her two sons, Tristan and Asher, from her previous relationship with actor Liam Waite.

Speaking about their strained relationship, Darius added: "We tried to make it work and we’ve separated and we're divorcing. But in the best way and we’re still friends. I got to be in the most amazing relationship, I got to be a stepfather. It was a gift." Last year, the TV star - who used to be known as Darius Danesh - was linked to model and Strictly Come Dancing's Daisy Lowe. Confirming their short romance, he told The Sun: "Yes, Daisy and I dated and I met her dad Gavin Rossdale, who is great. But what people also didn't know is we were friends first for years, even when I was married."
