Britain's former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who is tipped as a future prime minister, revealed Friday that he has separated from his wife and the couple are getting a divorce.

In a joint personal statement issued through a family friend, Mr Johnson and Ms Wheeler said: "Several months ago, after 25 years of marriage, we decided it was in our best interests to separate. Seconds out! And we begin the final round of that worldwide slug fest, my marriage". "We will not be commenting further", the statement said.

"Mum is finished with him".

Johnson has been accused of affairs in the past, and married Wheeler in 1993 after meeting her during his first marriage to Allegra Mostyn-Owen. Confirmation of the split comes just hours after reports claimed the One Crown Office Row silk and her husband were living apart and no longer socialise as a couple.
