They have issued a statement

Comedians Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont have announced they are getting divorced after nine years of marriage.

They shared the news via a joint statement.

“After 9 years of marriage, we would like to announce that we have separated.

“We have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go our separate ways.

“As our only priority is managing this difficult transition for our daughter, we would ask that our privacy is respected at this sensitive time to protect her well-being.

“We will be making no further comment.”

Richardson and Beaumont married back in 2015. Since 2020, they have co-starred as fictionalised versions of themselves in Meet the Richardsons – a comedy series about the chaos of married life.

Richardson previously opened up about how it was working alongside his wife.

“To give us some credit, I think we are really good at what is quite an intense thing you know, working together on a project that does take the full year to write the series film the series, edit it and promote it,” he told Metro.

“We’re always working on it and to balance that amongst still maintaining a private life isn’t easy, and I think we’re really good at it.

“There’s times obviously it’s difficult because marriage is difficult anyway, you know, I could be a dentist and you know, Lucy could be a teacher and marriage is just difficult.

“So this extra element doesn’t make it any easier. But I do think we’re actually quite good.”
