Maia Dunphy announces split from Johnny Vegas

The pair tied the knot in April 2011


Maia Dunphy has announced that she’s separated from her husband Johnny Vegas.

The couple, who tied the knot in April 2011 in Spain, are parents to their three-year-old son Tom.

Announcing the news through a statement on social media, Maia revealed that they decided to split last year.

“It is with a heavy heart that we want to let you know that we separated some time ago last year,” she wrote on Twitter.

“We are telling people now because speculation is unhelpful at best, and dangerous at worst.

“As we think is obvious, we continue to fully support each other; there is no acrimony, no story and no one else involved.

“We have never played out our relationship publicly, so we don’t feel it’s too much to ask for privacy now. We also ask people to be mindful that there are two children involved, and their welfare is our main concern now. Thank you,” she added.

Although Maia told followers the couple ended their marriage last year, comedian Johnny was very publicly in support of her Dancing With The Stars stint.

The TV presenter appeared on the RTE reality show, with Johnny often in the audience supporting her.
