"Our amazing children are our number one priority, above everything else so therefore we ask for as much space and respect from the media as possible while our family goes through this difficult time."

The presenter and her husband split in 2017

The Masked Singer panellist opened up about the break-up on This Morning earlier this year, telling hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about why she spent Christmas with her partner. Speaking about sharing an emotional message on Instagram at the time, Davina said: "I thought I would do a quick message and people took that as a cry for help that I was on my own but actually Matthew and I decided, for the kids' sake, that we would all be together this Christmas." She added: "We were all together and I wasn't alone. But it was really sweet. Just for the record, I thought you would ask me. For our kids' sake, Matthew and I have decided we don't want to talk about us in the public eye."
