The Repair Shop star Jay Blades, 51, said he fell out of love with his wife Jade and decided to leave the family home in 2015. The former couple share daughter Zola together. The presenter said the pair were a “brilliant business team” but he realised the spark had gone in 2015.
He said: “I didn’t want to break up everything we had achieved over the years. And I wanted to be the perfect father for Zola.”
But, the eco designer said he’d lay awake “agonising” over his decision to split up with her.
He added: “Jade said we couldn’t carry on working together if we were not a couple. I felt huge amounts of guilt.
“I was the one who had brought the happy house, our family home, our business, all crashing down.”Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
