Speaking to Irish Mirror, a friend of the couple said the split was amicable: "Jason is a loving father but I suppose, one of the downfalls of his success as a comic is that he is away a lot.

"He could be in Australia for a month at a time. This is difficult for anyone and I suppose, the marriage suffered. The break-up is as amicable as it can be for the sake of the children," they added.

The couple have two children, 18-year-old Devin and 11-year-old Daniel which they are said to be making a priority at this time.
