Laura Hamilton's love life

The Channel 4 presenter married Alex in 2012, but the pair recently split. Speaking about the couple's decision to go their separate ways, Laura told HELLO!: "It was a decision we both came to. We have an enormous amount of respect for each other, but we are now on different paths.

Laura opened up about her split from Alex in a recent interview

"At the point it was announced, we'd already overcome a lot of difficult times. But I am lucky that we have the relationship and respect for each other that we have, and our children's happiness will always be our priority."

On being newly single, she said: "It is weird. I have always had long-term relationships and I haven't been single since I was about 15. It hasn't put me off finding love again one day, but I'm not interested in that right now. Mine and Alex's focus is 100 per cent the children."

Laura began her TV career on children's TV show Fun Song Factory for CITV before going on to appear in other roles for shows such as Nickheads and Toonattik. In 2011, Laura was signed up to compete in Dancing On Ice and was partnered with Canadian pro Colin Ratushniak.
