Couple announce they are separating

Andy Scott-Lee and former Liberty X star Michelle Heaton have ended their 18-month marriage.

The couple tied the knot in an extravagant ceremony in front of family and friends in October 2006.

‘I can confirm the two have split up,’ says a spokesman for the couple.

‘But they need time to sort out their personal problems.’

No further details are known at this time
