Popular TV and radio personality Carrie Bickmore has revealed that she and husband Chris Walker have decided to separate.

Both Carrie and Chris announced the separation on their Instagram stories, each saying the decision has been made with ‘immense sadness’.

“Whilst this is a tough time,” Carrie wrote, “Our focus is on parenting our three children Ollie, Evie and Addie with everything we’ve got. They are doing great.”

The pair met on the set of The Project in 2012, two years after Carrie lost her first husband, Greg Lange, to brain cancer. Chris became a stepfather to Carrie and Greg’s son Ollie.

Chris and Carrie then welcomed their first child together, Evie, in 2015, followed by Adelaide in 2018.

Last year they both took a long break from their TV roles to live in the UK for a school term. At the time, Carrie explained that they needed to take a break as a family.

“We feel like this is our last chance to do something like this together before Ollie hits the pointy end of his schooling and no longer wants to hang out with us so … we are heading to the UK for a school term,” she wrote.

At the end of the trip, Carrie wrote: “And so comes to an end the most incredible few months…. Was it perfect NO. Was it always easy NO. Was it worth it YES YES YES. Nothing worthwhile comes easily. I am just so glad we had a crack. Memories made that we’ll talk about forever”

  • Breakups are always sad, especially when there are kids involved but it’s better than “staying together for the kids” as then they grow up thinking you need to just put up with things for the sake if other people’s happiness…

  • I am so sad on hearing this news. I always thought they were so happy, but clearly you don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Such a sad day for all of them. I hope they navigate it okay and are left alone to work through this with their children.

  • Sometimes you can’t go on because of whatever. The worst thing you can do is stay and suffer good that they seem calm and are moving on which is the right thing to do I wish good things to all of them . It is a solid lesson for all

  • I think every marriage goes through struggles at about ten years. It’s a shame they don’t feel that they can get through this,

  • She has to do what is right for her. If it isn’t working and they don’t feel they can try any longer then that is their choice. I wish her all the happiness in the world, she is a lovely person.

  • It is always a shame when a relationship ends – even if it’s best for everyone, it’s still not what anyone hoped for when they started.

  • Hmmmm, life in the spotlight sure kills too many relationships. I wonder why??
