She continued: "I'm just focusing on my career and this tour, I have my dog Betty to take care of, and lots of projects. I think it's important right now that I take time for myself and build my own road and we'll see from there.

The pair have previously spoken about still working professionally together, and Karen told Radio Times: "Nothing's really changed - if anything, it just feels like there's this new energy between us which is quite nice." She previously hinted that she would like to work on their marriage, telling Daily Mail's Weekend magazine: "It's important to be open to all possibilities. I haven't given up on it. I saw my parents break up and I didn't like it. I think the best thing for now is to behave like adults and take a break.
