Actor Perry Fenwick - who plays Billy Mitchell in EastEnders - and his Coronation Street star wife have called time on their marriage.
After five years together, Perry and Angela Lonsdale are said to be "devastated" by the split.
"They just ran out of love," a friend tells the Mirror.
"They had a series of heart-to-hearts and decided to call it a day. No one else is involved."
The pair, who lived together in North London, were known as one of the strongest couples on the soap scene.
The couple have "sadly separated after five years of marriage. They will not be making any further comment", a spokesman has said.
