Jodie Marsh has split from husband James Placido, eight months after marrying.

Earlier today, the former bodybuilder shocked fans by announcing she and James have separated. Jodie announced the news on Twitter, by sharing a photo of her statement.

It read: "It is with sadness that I bring you the news that James and I have separated. I will be keeping all the dogs with me. I won't be taking calls on the matter as I'd like to be left alone. I thank you in advance for your sensitivity on the subject..."

Jodie and James had married in a secret ceremony in Barbados in August last year. At the time, Jodie had surprised fans with news she had tied the knot, as no one had known she was dating or that she had got engaged.

The couple chose to keep their romance private until they had wed, with Jodie later revealing: "I have news. I just married the love of my life, my soul mate, my best friend; James Placido, I love you and I'm so proud to be you wife.

"I promise to love you, support you, encourage you, help you and I promise to make you laugh every day of our lives."

The 37-year-old later explained to fans and friends why she and James chose to keep their wedding a private affair, explaining they had wanted to get married just for them. Jodie said: "We love each other so much and we wanted to get married for US, not for anyone else. We didn't want a big fancy do, nor did we want a fuss or any attention. We wanted a simple, intimate, beautiful ceremony."

Following their nuptials, Jodie was regularly gushing about married life on social media. She often shared loved-up photos with James for her fans to see and recently marked the couple's sixth month anniversary since saying 'I do.'
