Real Housewives of Cheshire star Leanne Brown is reported to have split from her husband Wes Brown after more than 20 years.
Leanne, 45, and her former Manchester United husband Wes, 42, are said to have secretly separated a year ago.
The reality star has reportedly removed her wedding ring while Wes has allegedly moved out of the mansion they shared with their three children Halle, Lola and Lilia.
Leanne and Wes were together for more than 20 years and married in 2009.
A source told The Sun: “Wes and Leanne split before Christmas.
“There were no third parties involved; it is just a sad fact that their marriage has run its course.
“Leanne has flourished in single life and has removed her wedding ring.
"She has told people she feels free and is working hard on her businesses and flourishing as an independent woman.
"Wes meanwhile is carrying on as best he can.
"There have been rumours of trouble in their marriage for a while but they put a brave face on publicly.
“Now it is officially over and they are doing their best to co-parent their children as they build their lives as separate individuals."
OK! has contacted Leanne and Wes' representatives for comment.
It comes after Leanne was seen without her wedding ring as she partied with pals in Menagerie Restaurant in Manchester.
It has also been reported Leanne posted a cryptic message on her Instagram profile.
As Leanne reportedly shared a photo of herself without a wedding band, she wrote a caption: "When you realise that the one relationship in your life that needs the most attention, love, kindness, respect and compassion, is the one with yourself, your life will improve dramatically."
Leanne has two daughters Halle, 19, Lilia, 14, and Lola, 11, with footballer Wes.
The RHOC star gushed over her life and her husband's career at Manchester United, the team which he played for from the age of 14 until 32.

She said in 2019: "Yes we’ve got a lovely life and all this money and I’m not saying the money isn’t great, but when you’re in it you’re living in this bubble.
"Although the fans can be amazing they can also be very cruel.
"It must be hard [for footballers] to deal with to be on top one minute and hated the next for a bad kick or missing the goal.
"We are the ones that are left to pick up the pieces and bear the brunt of whatever is left at the end of their careers.
"Sometimes it’s hard being alone a lot. The lads are away a lot, especially if involved in a high profile club and England international too."
