Lenny Henry & Dawn French

Lenny Henry & Dawn French

Oh no! Comedian husband and wife Dawn French and Lenny Henry have announced they are splitting up after 25 years of marriage!

The couple, who we’ve always thought were amongst the cutest on the planet (except for that little affair on Lenny’s part), released a statement yesterday which said;

"Lenny Henry and Dawn French are sad to announce they have decided to separate after 25 years of marriage. They made the decision last October and since then have been living together in constant, open and honest discussion. The separation is entirely amicable and they fully intend to maintain their close friendship.

“Their priority is to commit to the future joint parenting of their daughter. They ask that the media respects the privacy of their family. No further comment will be made."

I guess if your husband went and frolicked with a skinny blonde 15 years into your marriage things would never be the same again anyway, but at least the pair are being grown ups about it all. Sadface.
