Former couple Gwen and Gavin were married for 14 years before their divorce was finalised in 2016. The singer is also a father to model Daisy Lowe from his previous relationship with Pearl Lowe.

In a 2017 interview with the Sun, Gavin made rare comments about his split from Gwen and admitted it was "shocking for everyone".

"For me, it was about being solid [for our sons] and silent but respectful of Gwen. That's what it'll be forever," he continued. "Those days were the worst days ever. It's all a bit of a blur."

Gavin, 55, further explained: "We had 20 years together and that in itself is pretty incredible. It's a lifetime. I still think she's incredible. It was a lovely 20 years and we have three amazing children.

Gwen and Gavin were married from 2002 until 2016

"There were a lot of positives, and with time they'll become more and more obvious."
