Just over a year ago, Lucy, 40, admitted in an interview that she felt like a “jealous wife” after insinuating her career was overshadowed by her hubby.

In an interview with The Guardian, Lucy recalled: “I very much still feel like the jealous wife who’s hungry for a career.”

Her comments came after the couple were recognised in public thanks to their fame where one passer-by said to Lucy: “Isn’t it nice that your husband’s let you be on telly with him?”

She then admitted that this thought played into her real life as she compared her career with that of Jon’s.

Lucy and Jon, 40, have appeared on screen together in many shows including their mockumentary series, Meet The Richardsons, which was born after a TV producer spotted them squabbling on another TV show titled Married To A Celebrity.

Meet The Richardsons follows the pair playing exaggerated and fictional version of themselves and their home life but Lucy, who writes the programme, has confessed that “some things are” real despite appearing to be scripted.

As the writer of the show, Jon said in the past that Lucy wrote his role in the programme for him “to be humiliated and look embarrassed”.

Before announcing their split, Jon also admitted that they used their marital rows to their benefit and often crafted scenes in the show to mirror their real-life arguments.

He added to The Guardian: “Every couple argues but we have an end product for our arguments.

“We hone them then put them on TV. And then it’s like: ‘Oh, perhaps we weren’t arguing – perhaps we were just working on a routine.’”

The pair, who share one daughter together, confirmed their split today having tied the knot in April 2015.

A statement shared by PA news agency today said: “After 9 years of marriage, we would like to announce that we have separated. We have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go our separate ways.

“As our only priority is managing this difficult transition for our daughter, we would ask that our privacy is respected at this sensitive time to protect her well-being.

“We will be making no further comment.”

Funnyman Jon, 41, and Lucy, 40, started dating in 2013 after they met each other through friend Roisin Conaty.

In 2016 they welcomed their daughter Elsie Louise into the world.

The couple have starred in a number of TV shows over the years.
