Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux divorcing because he doesn’t want any more children

The couple have been married for six years

Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux are getting divorced after six years of marriage.

Gary, 55, and 36-year-old Danielle are calling time on their relationship because she wants to start a family with him but the football pundit feels to old to have any more children.

Last night a spokesperson for the couple confirmed the split, saying “Gary and Danielle have decided to end their marriage and their divorce was confirmed today with the judge granting a Decree Nisi. They remain the greatest of friends and wish each other every happiness.”

The ex-England footballer – who has a personal fortune of around £20million – decided to keep things cheap, and he and model Danielle have used a government website to get a quickie divorce costing just £400.

A source told The Sun: “Usually these things are very sad and often acrimonious but with Gary and Danielle it is very much friendly with no legal battle that can cost a lot of money.

“They didn’t use any solicitors and filed for divorce using a government website where they filled out the forms together. It cost about £400, rather tens of thousands in legal bills.

“They made a great couple but their different views on having children is what made them realise had to split.

“They both know it is the right thing to do and are looking forward to the future. They are convinced they will stay friends.”

Gary has four sons from his previous marriage to Michelle Cockayne, and Danielle has a 13-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
