Loose Women’s Linda Robson has confirmed her marriage to Mark Dunford is officially over.
Rumours regarding the pair’s marital status have been circulating for some time, with Linda, 65, previously hinting that they were navigating some rocky waters together.
Earlier this summer, she told The Sun: “Every relationship goes through its ups and downs. It's not bad, we're doing alright."
A source later confirmed to the publication that the ITV star was ‘quite open behind the scenes’ regarding the problems in her marriage and that Linda and Mark had hit a ‘rough patch’ before Christmas 2022.
Despite apparently ‘working through’ their differences at the time, the Birds of a Feather actor has now confirmed they’ve gone their separate ways.
Opening up about their split, Linda said: "He’s a really good dad and we had some good years, but enough is enough.
"I’ve got my family and my kids around me. And I’m going on a cruise with Lesley Joseph in November. I’m keeping busy. I feel fine. I’m just going away on trips all the time.”
She explained: “I’m not interested [in dating] honestly. I can’t be a***d with all that.”
Linda and her ex-husband Mark, 62, were married for 33 years and shared two children - Louis, 31, and Roberta, 27.
Before tying the knot with Mark in 1990, the actor was in a relationship with Tony Tyler, whom she shares Lauren, 40, with.
Interestingly, Linda’s latest revelation comes just months after she admitted she had been practising celibacy for the last two years.
Speaking on an episode of Loose Women earlier this year, she said: "Can I just say I've been celibate for two years?”
At the time, she revealed that Denise Welch had gifted her a ‘lady friend’ in light of this information.
Linda has also previously claimed that she ‘can’t be a***d’ with romance and that she is ‘just happy going out’ with her friends and family.
“If I've got three or four days off work, I'll just go to Mallorca. I'll get a flight out there. Stay in a hotel hopefully full of Germans so no one will recognise me and just have a nice relaxing time,” she claimed.
