Claire said in a statement to MailOnline: "Whilst we have decided not to remain together we are committed to bringing up our wonderful son and making sure we are great parents and supporting each other to achieve that."

The 43-year-old actress initially split from Daniel last year, just before she discovered she was pregnant with their first child. They had been together two years and had been trying for a baby.

Claire and Daniel's relationship resumed once Jaxon was born.

She had told The Mirror in March that she and Dan, 29, were blissfully happy again:

"Me and Daniel are back together now. I came back up to Liverpool when I was pregnant. I was rehearsing my show and about five months into the pregnancy we started spending time together again. Things are going great, life's really good. He is a great dad and he has a great family, his mother and grandmother are amazing. The family just adore him."
