The maths whizz's marriage is over

Strictly Come Dancing‘s Rachel Riley has split from her husband.

It was confirmed this morning that the pretty blonde, 27, has ended things with Jamie Gilbert after just 15 months of marriage. 

The break-up comes weeks after Rachel – who replaced Carol Vorderman on Countdown in 2009 – and dance parter Pasha Kovalev were voted off Strictly.

Rachel met Jamie while studying at the University Of Oxford, where she studied mathematics.

They split in 2009 after four years together but later rekindled their romance and Jamie proposed on Rachel‘s 25th birthday in 2011.

The pair wed last August in front of guests including Countdown‘s Nick Hewer.

‘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,’ a source tells The Sun.

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