BBC Breakfast host Sally Nugent is 'devastated' after split with husband of 13 years as he moves out of home | The Sun

BBC Breakfast host Sally Nugent is 'devastated' after splitting from her husband of 13 years.

The daytime tv presenter, 51, has reportedly separated from her businessman husband Gavin Hawthorn, 52.

Gavin is said to have moved out of the £1.4million Cheshire home he shares with Sally.

The pair share a teenage son, but have been 'moving in different directions' recently.

The split is said to be 'amicable'.

A friend of the couple told The Mail: "It's very sad but they are no longer together.

"I think they tried to tough it out for quite a while as they didn't want to split up if they could possibly help it for the sake of their son but they clearly couldn't make a go of it.

"They've both been very guarded about the reasons behind their growing apart but it's been plain for a while that they had been and now it's obvious that they haven't been able to resolve that despite clearly trying for some time."

Reports suggest the pair's careers made have played a part in the demise of their relationship.

While Sally's star has become a household name since she replaced Louise Minchin on BBC Breakfast in 2021, her husband left a senior marketing role at Pets at Home to inves in a local franchise for national group The Massage Company.

The pal added: "The contrast between their two media careers couldn't have been more stark."

The Sun has contacted a rep for Sally for comment.

When approached by reporters and asked about the state of her marriage, Sally said last night: "I’m not going to say anything, thanks."

The couple bought their home in Hale, Cheshire for £745,000 in 2012.

The house is believed to have been put up for sale back in November but is not thought to be on the market currently.

Sally has always kept her marriage private, with her bio on the BBC website simply saying that she is "married with one child – a football and rugby-mad boy".

In an previous interview with S Magazine, she told how her husband marked the birth of their son, saying: "When I had our son my husband bought me a “blue for a boy” vintage aquamarine ring from an antique jewellers in Richmond, London."
