She went on: ‘I will admit I’m crying as I type this as I can’t believe this is even real.

‘I hope you don’t mind if I just have a few days trying to figure out my life as I’m currently in a spare room with a few essentials.

‘I don’t know what else to say.’

She signed the post off as: ‘All my love, A very broken. Lisa – Marie x.’

When the couple married in November 2022, the BBC presenter hailed the joyous occasion as ‘perfect’.

Lisa-Marie added at the time: ‘Once you get to a certain age, you realise what’s actually important on the day – and that is having the people around you that love you for who you are. So we made the day our day.’

Blades also shared that he shed a tear as the loved-up couple exchanged their vows and described it as the most ’emotional’ part.

‘It was almost like I had tunnel vision and I could only see Lisa there,’ he added.

The news of their split comes just days after Blades said he was ‘messed up’ after the murder of his uncle.

In an Instagram video he told fans that he was taking a break from social media after the funeral.

He said: ‘This is kind of a public service announcement, I’ve just been to my uncle’s funeral, he was murdered a few weeks ago.
