Zoe and Norman Cook split in September 2016, but remain on very good terms

Zoe, 46, and Norman, 54, share two children together; Woody and his younger sister Nelly, aged seven. The couple announced their separation in September 2016, but have remained on very good terms. In a joint statement at the time, the couple said: "With great sadness we are announcing that we have separated. After many exciting adventures together over the last 18 years we have come to the end of our rainbow. We are still great friends and will continue to support each other and raise our beautiful children together, living next door but one. X Zoe & Norm."

Following their separation, Zoe found love again with cameraman Billy Yates. Tragically, he took his own life in May, with Zoe posting a touching tribute on Instagram following his untimely death.
