The singer is single again

Gareth Gates has announced that his 4-year marriage to dancer Suzanne Mole is over.

The singer – who welcomed daughter Missy with Suzanne in 2009 – says he and his wife have ‘grown apart’.

‘Despite our efforts over the past three years to make our marriage work, sadly Suzanne and I have decided to separate,’ Gareth, 28, tells the Daily Mirror.

‘Whilst we have grown apart, we love and cherish our wonderful daughter Missy and together we will prioritise her happy upbringing.’

The couple’s split comes weeks after Gareth was caught enjoying a night out with his Legally Blonde: The Musical co-star Faye Brooks at a local pub.

Two years ago, Suzanne, 37, forgave the Pop Idol runner-up after he was linked to Les Misérables actress Katie Hall.

‘It was hard for me and Suzanne… When she heard my side of the story, though, we were absolutely fine,’ Gareth told Now earlier this year.

‘Stronger as a result, actually.’
