£400 divorce for multi-millionaire football legend

Ex-England captain, Gary Lineker and wife Danielle Bux, have according to the press ended their eight-year marriage with an online divorce service, costing £400.  

The couple, worth an estimated £20million, are said to have split over a difference of opinion on starting a family together.  

Despite the divorce, the couple remains close and, according to Gary, are still the greatest of friends. He took to Twitter to thank his 4.48 million followers for their support, and said: “@DanielleBux and I had many wonderful years together. We remain very close and the greatest of friends.” 

In  her retweet, Danielle added “We have shared the most incredible 8 years that I will always cherish. We will remain the best of friends.”

This is the second divorce for the 55-year-old England football legend who is also the face of Walkers crisps. Gary shared a 20 year-marriage with his childhood sweetheart, Michelle Cockayne, the mother of his four sons.
