Irish TV star Grainne Seoige has ended her marriage of eight years. Ms Seoige, a presenter for RTE and GMTV, said she and husband Stephen Cullinane were to separate after 11 years as a couple.
In a statement, Grainne's spokesman said her main concern is for her 16-year-old son Conall.
The move is likely to fuel speculation that Grainne is planning a move to the UK, where she has recently taken on a number of presenting roles for GMTV and is regarded as a serious rival to Northern Ireland woman Christine Bleakley for upcoming roles.
The couple said their marriage has ended but they remain “good friends”.
