TV stars Les Dennis and Amanda Holden have announced their seven-year marriage is over - but, in true showbusiness style, have promised to stay close friends, although she is thought to be missing in Majorca and heading to the mainland today. The couple, whose marriage had been the target of remorseless attention by the tabloid press, said the split was amicable. “There are no other parties involved and they are and will remain close friends,” the couple said in a joint statement on Friday. The 31-year-old Holden, who hit the headlines nearly three years ago when tabloids revealed her affair with “Men Behaving Badly” star Neil Morrissey, said: “I will always have the most enormous love and respect for Les.” Holden, who found TV fame in “The Grimleys” and “Cutting It” said: “It is very sad. We have been together now for over 10 years and we have tried to make our marriage work.” Dennis, who for 15 years was the chirpy host of the TV game show “Family Fortunes”, said: “Amanda and I have had a good marriage and I have no regrets. Sadly we have grown apart recently and we both feel it is time to move on.” The pair said they would not be making any other statements or giving interviews about the break-up of their marriage. Dennis, who is 17 years older than Holden, was dubbed “Rambling Les” by the tabloids for his morose appearance in “Celebrity Big Brother” show, confessing he was in therapy for three years and gaining notoriety for his flatulence.
