Atomic Kitten star Natasha Hamilton has revealed that her marriage is over to Riad Erraji as they have "fallen out of love".

The 31-year-old singer-songwriter ended her marriage three weeks ago and Riad Erraji, who has already moved out of their family home.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror Natasha explained: "There’s no drink or drugs or anyone else involved. We’ve just grown apart – and that’s the devastating thing."

She added: "When I took my wedding vows I thought it would be forever. But somehow over the last year we have just fallen out of love and, no matter how hard we try, we can’t get it back.

"Riad is a great dad and he’s still the love of my life. I’m just so incredibly sad."

Natasha admitted that the hardest thing was having to explain the situation to her children, three-year-old son Alfie and from two previous relationships Josh, 10, and eight-year-old Harry.

She told the paper: "We had to sit the older two down on the sofa and tell them we were splitting up.

"But that we both loved them and, even though we weren’t together as a couple, they would still be our number one priority."
