Rachel Riley's marital home up for sale

Wednesday January 8, 2014

The home that Countdown star Rachel Riley shared with her husband has gone up for sale.

The 27-year-old split from Jamie Gilbert six weeks ago, and already their four-bedroom Sussex property in on the market.

The couple bought the house for a reported £370,000 in 2010, and it is now available on the Rightmove website, described as being "presented to a very high standard".

Jamie, who met Rachel when they were at university, was said to be devastated when she ended their 16 month marriage in November.

At the time, she was competing on Strictly Come Dancing — fuelling reports that her bond with professional partner Pasha Kovalec was a factor.

"Rachel and Pasha were clearly very close," a source told the Sun. "The amount of time she spent with him was too much for Jamie.

"It was the last thing the marriage needed."
