Part of the problem, it has been reported, was Elizabeth's unhappiness at Shane's close relationship with his former wife Simone – the mother of his three children. There were even stories the two were getting back together.

However Simone says the reports are false and she is happy with her boyfriend Toby Roberts, reports the Daily Mirror.
Though she was pictured visiting Shane's home with her daughter, the visit was only to discuss a school project and not the prospect of them giving their marriage another go.
"There are definitely no feelings there. Shane and I gave it a good shot and we’re much better the way things are as friends," she said.
"I hope he and Elizabeth can work things out as they seemed happy together."
