Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Vincent Simone is reportedly divorcing his wife.
The performer and ex-partner Susan Duddy – who share sons Luca, 11, and Mateo, seven – are said to have gone their separate ways three years ago.
Italian dancing sensation Vincent and Susan have reportedly “remained amicable” following their split and the breakdown of the union came down to Vincent’s busy touring schedule putting a “big strain” on them.
A source told The Sun: “Vincent is sad about the end of the marriage, but they have remained amicable and nobody else is involved.
“When Vincent was on tour they struggled with the distance and just weren’t able to spend any time together. They were apart for quite a long period and this put a big strain on their marriage.

“Earning a living on the road can be hard for families as it involves so much travel.”
The Mirror have contacted a representative for Vincent for comment.

He said: “I felt incredibly emotional and was worried I wouldn’t keep it together.
“I couldn’t look back at Susan as she walked up the aisle because I was afraid I would dissolve into tears.
“She looked so beautiful, really breathtaking.”
Their wedding day was the first time the couple got to dance together – despite Vincent being a professional dancer.
They swayed to Ronan Keating’s track This I Promise You.
Vincent said: “Susan didn’t want to do a choreographed first dance. She’s very shy and doesn’t like to be the centre of attention.
“She asked me to perform with one of my Strictly ex-partners but I said, ‘No, it’s our wedding, I want to dance with you.’ We decided to do the normal smooch.”
Susan added: “Dancing is his career and I am so used to him dancing with Flavia and the girls on Strictly. It may sound strange but Vincent and I had never really danced together.”
