It was reported last night that Sir Trevor McDonald and his wife have decided to separate after 34 years of marriage

ITN legend Sir Trevor McDonald has separated from his wife Josephine, according to reports, ending their 34-year marriage

It has been claimed that Sir Trevor, 81, and Jo have decided to go their separate ways, with the first moving into his own apartment

« It’s sad but Trevor and Jo realized they don’t make each other happy anymore, » a source said, « and it was time to move on »

The insider added to The Sun: « He and Josephine have a long history so obviously they’re still talking, and it’s all amicable

« Trevor has moved into his own apartment and friends joke that it’s his bachelor apartment »

They added that the split was « no secret » within the former couple’s circle of friends

Jo is not Sir Trevor’s first wife – he separated from his ex-wife Beryl in 1985 after 11 years of marriage, with whom he shares two grown children, Joanne and Tim

In 1986, Sir Trevor met and began a romantic relationship with Josephine after they met at ITN

He moved to London seven years later, where he worked for the BBC World Service before joining ITN in the early 1970s
