According to The Sun, the 25-year-old Countdown beauty has split from her 31-year-old husband just 16 months after getting hitched.

Jamie, 31, is said to be “devastated beyond belief” with a family friend adding that he is “distraught and stunned”.

A source told the paper: “He has no idea where this has come from. Rachel just told him they had grown apart.”

“They are separated. Rachel is away filming much of the time. Jamie’s stuff is still at the house so he hasn’t technically moved out.”

The couple previously split in 2009 after four years together but rekindled their relationship not long after.

“The whole family is very upset. They adore Rachel and everyone believed she and Jamie would start a family.

“They obviously fell in love before she was famous and for whatever reason, she now doesn’t feel they have a future together.”

Rachel recently competed in Strictly Come Dancing alongside dance partner Pasha Kovalev, being voted off the show earlier this month.

There is no suggestion, however, that any other parties were involved in the split.

Jamie and Rachel first met at Oxford University and married in August last year after he proposed to her on her 25th birthday.

A spokesperson for Rachel has refused to pass comment.
