When did she split from her husband Matthew Robertson?

The Sun exclusively revealed that Davina McCall has announced her marriage is over, admitting: "I have made so many mistakes in my life."

Davina shared a motivational quote with her online followers on Friday 24 November 2017 which said: “Every morning we get a chance to be different. A chance to change. A chance to be better.

“Your past is your past. Leave it there. Get on with the future part.”

Davina added on Instagram: “I really know about this one. I have made so many mistakes in my life. But there is always a new day.”

She then confirmed she had split with Matthew, father to her three children, after 17 years of marriage.

She said: “I am very sad to say Matthew and I have separated. Our amazing children are our number one priority.”

The Sun on Sunday can reveal there is no third party involved.

Davina previously talked about going to therapy with the former Pet Rescue presenter, which she said last year had been “brilliant”.

A source said: “This is a devastating time for Davina. She has been very open about how hard she has worked to save the marriage for so many years.

“But eventually the time comes when you have to accept it’s not going to work.

“They’re at that stage now and their primary concern is for the well-being of their kids who they adore more than anything else in the world.”

Does she have any children and who is she related to?

Davina has three children, named Holly, 15, Tilly, 13, and Chester, 10 – who she keeps away from the limelight.

During an appearance on heritage show Who Do You Think You Are? Davina revealed that she was the great-granddaughter of Celestin Hennion, Prefect of Police, who had a role in the French political scandal The Dreyfus affair between 1984 and 1906.
