A source tells the newspaper that The X Factor judge "realised she had married too soon and had been swept away by a bit of a whirlwind romance.

"Over time it became clear to each of them that they were very different people and from very different worlds.

"They are now focusing on making sure they stay friends. The divorce is amicable and they have both said they will always be there for each other."
