Jeff Brazier has announced he and wife Kate Dwyer have split after nine years together.
The TV personality took to Instagram to share the sad news with his fans, revealing that the couple, who got married in 2018, parted ways ‘earlier in the year’.
Jeff wrote: "A moment to practice what I preach and start the new week with honesty. One for the smilers and eternally positive individuals who don’t often afford themselves the right to share their own vulnerabilities.
"I have so much to be grateful for and I appreciate facing the lessons I need to grow but this year has been challenging to say the least.
"My nine-year relationship ended earlier in the year and I’ve been working through that on top of supporting someone close to me who is going through something difficult."
He went on to say that he had moved, along with his sons, but that he now spent most of his time by himself.
He continued: "The boys and I have recently moved home to a new area and I spend most of the time alone as the boys obviously have their own things going on.
"It’s been constant change this year and I’m good with adapting but the combination of things have left me low at times and I’ve honestly never felt loneliness like it. Can we put Christmas back a few months?!
"I have lots of great friends and I know they’re a phone call away but sometimes I find it hard to admit I’m struggling with all of the change preferring just to keep working through it myself. I’m a bit too good at that.
"There was always going to come a day when the boys didn’t want or need me so much and I thought I’d be more than OK with having all this time on my hands!"
Jeff, 43, shares two sons - Bobby and Freddy - with the late Jade Goody.
Bobby, 19, recently joined the cast of EastEnders, playing Little Mo Slater’s son Freddie.
Speaking as he joined the long-running soap, Bobby said: "I’m really excited to be joining the cast of EastEnders - so far it’s been perfect. Everybody has been so beautiful to me and made settling in easier than I could’ve hoped.
"Stepping into the acting world has always been a vision of mine and doing that with EastEnders as a Slater is a blessing. I'm very grateful. Loving every minute of Freddie so far and can’t wait to see what’s in store for him in Walford.”
