‘They have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways. We request that their privacy is respected at this sensitive time.’
Alan previously spoke about dogs Bev and Joyce, telling Now To Love, the foirmwer couple spoiled their pooches rotten, often taking them on road trips down to the Brighton coast.
‘Our days revolve around the dogs, he said at the time. ‘We’re like those parents who move across the country so their kids can go to the best school.’
Paul and his mum feature in show Yap, Yap, Yap, much Alan’s his glee.
He said: ‘I told them if they want all these nice things to continue – posh meals, nice shoes, mum’s conservatory – then they have to be part of my show!’
