Busy explained that the couple had first separated in February 2021 and had been contemplating how to publicly share the news.

She said: ‘Marc and I talked about it, and when we first separated, we couldn’t even think about putting one of those statements out — it made us sick, both of us, truly ill. It’s a journey.

‘The surest way that Marc and I have been able to ensure the privacy of our kids that we love so f—ing much was by not involving the public.’
