Chloe Madeley has spoken publicly for the first time about her separation from husband James Haskell, weeks after the couple confirmed their marriage is over.
The daughter of TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan issued a joint statement with former rugby player Haskell, 38, in October, confirming the separation was amicable and would remain so for the sake of their 15-month old daughter, Bodhi.
Speaking to social media followers on Wednesday, Madeley, 36, reflected on the end of their five-year marriage for the first time after the subject was broached by a fan.
After being asked if “there was a chance” they will get back together, she wrote: ‘James and I are not together anymore but we are determined to be the absolute best parents we can be to our amazing little girl.’
The Q&A comes after Haskell was spotted partying in Ibiza with a lookalike of Chloe only weeks before announcing their marriage split.

The former England rugby player was pictured with Chloe McLennan throughout the summer whilst sharing a booth at Ibiza’s Ocean Beach Club.
According to a source for The Sun, McLennan, also known as DJ Loeca, shared some advice on the industry with James.
The source revealed that people knew James’ career change took a toll on the relationship because he was often away from home, saying: ‘James and Chloe got to know each other on the DJ circuit in Ibiza.
‘It’s no secret that James’ new career choice took its toll on his relationship and caused arguments at home.
‘He was away a lot, forging his new brand, while she was in the UK being a mum to their 13-month-old daughter.’
The former couple confirmed their separation in a joint statement released in October after appearing in public without their wedding rings.
In a joint update shared to Haskell’s Instagram account, they announced: ‘Chloe and I mutually decided separate at the end of September, 2023.
‘We had not planned on releasing a statement at this time – certainly not while the television show was airing – but constant speculation about our marriage has, unfortunately, forced our hand.’

In a bitter twist of irony the couple recently released a new fly-on-the-wall reality TV series, Chloe Madeley: A Family Affair.
In recent scenes from their new reality show, Haskell bore the brunt of Madeley’s frustration after he jetted to Ibiza for a DJ gig – where he was pictured partying with a troupe of bikini-clad dancers.
Documenting the job on social media, he was surrounded by scantily-clothed women – leaving his wife, who was back in the United Kingdom, less than impressed.
After spotting the pictures, she raged: ‘He’s on Instagram uploading videos and photos of all these girls, and I was like, ‘I will kill you. I will fly to Ibiza and kill you’.
‘He posted videos of him with loads of girls in thongs ‘cos he thinks that it like makes him look cool on social media. I’m like you’re a k*** and you make me look like a k***. Stop doing it.’
