Former Pop Idol star Darius Campbell and his wife Natasha Henstridge are to divorce following two years of marriage, according to reports.

Singer Darius married Canadian actress Natasha in a secret ceremony in February 2011, however they have apparently decided to go their separate ways.

Although originally from Scotland, Darius has been living in Los Angeles with Natasha due to their showbiz careers.

In a statement, Darius was quoted confirming the divorce to the Daily Mail, adding: "It was a mutual decision."

Darius rose to fame in the 2001 series Popstars, which was responsible for forming the band Hear'Say. Darius - who went by the surname Danesh at the time - did not make it into the final stage of the competition after performing his own version of Britney Spears' song 'Hit Me Baby One More Time'.

Refusing to give up, Darius then landed a place in the show's successor Pop Idol. He went on to finish third in the competition, behind Gareth Gates and Will Young.

Since then, Darius has had his own solo pop career and, more recently, has been starring on stage. Earlier this month, it was revealed that Darius had landed a lead role in From Here To Eternity: The Musical.

Reveal has contacted Darius' rep for a comment.
