Una Healy's estranged husband Ben Foden insists they are 'civil'

Theirs was one of the shock splits of 2018, after their ten year relationship came to an end amid allegations of cheating.

Yet Ben Foden is insistent that, despite being the supposed culprit and famously being seen using dating app Bumble before announcing the divorce, he and Una Healy are 'civil' and that he hopes they are still 'friends'.

He also added, in a recent chat with Now, that he wants her and their two children to visit him in New York, after he moves there this week.

All this comes as Una, 37, announced before Christmas that she has a new boyfriend: Irish hurler David Breen.

Ben, 33, said: 'Our relationship is actually quite good. I stay at the family home whenever I want to see the kids. We're keeping it civil and hopefully we can remain friends. We'll always have a future because she's the mother of my children.'

He went on to add: 'I signed for New York Rugby United so things are going to change. It's just exciting - a different change of pace, something that's really needed.

'I'm sure Una wouldn't mind a little holiday in New York. She'll drop the kids with me and then she can go and enjoy the sights.'
