Ashley Banjo and his wife Francesca have ended their relationship after 16 years.
The couple, who share two children, ended things 18 months ago.
Ashley Banjo confirmed the news in a statement on Instagram.
“After much thought and consideration we both feel now is the time to share some personal news.
“Nearly 18 months ago we took the difficult decision to separate. After being together for over 16 years, since we were teenagers, this is not a decision that has been taken lightly.
“It has not been easy and the processing of the situation has not been fast by any means. But we feel that as we approach the new year it is time to share this news with others.
Ashley and Francesca stressed, “Our main focus will always be our beautiful children.”
“Every decision that has been made is to make sure we can continue as a loving family and give the very best of ourselves as parents.
“Raising Rose and Micah in a healthy and happy environment is the most important thing to both of us.
“Sometimes after so many years people just move in different directions, but we do so lovingly and we continue to try and be both the best parents possible and the best of friends to each other.
The pair asked for privacy, saying: “We have always been private with our personal lives, so we kindly ask that everyone please continue to respect that privacy.”
Ashley and Francesca share two children, daughter Rose, born in 2019, and Micah, born in 2020.
