Former footballer Gary Lineker playfully joked about his recent divorce with ex-wife Danielle Bux, according to reports.

Earlier this month, it was revealed Gary and Danielle had filed for divorce, after six years of marriage.

Proving their split was amicable, Gary has since flown out to LA to visit Danielle across the pond and was seen making light of their situation on Instagram.

Yesterday, Danielle uploaded a new photo of herself and Gary out with friends - including Richard Bacon. She captioned her post: "F.R.I.E.N.D.S."

According to The Mirror, Gary had then commented on the snap, joking: "Dinner? Too soon?" - Although, his comment now appears to have been deleted.

An insider told the paper: "This is a relatively rare thing in the world of showbusiness, a super-friendly divorce. They are determined to remain great mates and regularly see not only each other, but each other's children as well."

Danielle's Instagram comes after she and her ex-husband reassured fans they will still remain close, despite divorcing.

Announcing their decision to separate, the couple both took to Twitter. Gary tweeted: "Thank you all for your kind words. @DanielleBux and I had many wonderful years together. We remain very close and the greatest of friends."

Danielle, meanwhile, said: "We have shared the most incredible 8 years that I will always cherish. We will remain the best of friends."

While Gary and Danielle haven't gone into detail about their reasons to divorce, it is reported they split due to differing views on wanting to start a family.

A spokesperson for the couple said in a statement: "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."

Following news of their split surfacing, Katie Hopkins appeared to hit out at Gary and Danielle, insisting there is 'no such thing as a friendly divorce.'

However, former CBB star Luisa Zissman was quick to share her support for the pair. She hit back at Katie: "I had a very friendly divorce with my ex husband. We get on really well! @Oliverzissman."

When Katie then claimed that she and Oliver 'never really loved each other', Luisa replied: "We did but we fell out of love, and are now good friends! Honestly it does and can happen & I'm so argumentative!"
