Carol McGiffin, one of the stars of the panel show “Loose Women” was reflecting on Friday in a video clip replayed from 17 years ago about divorce rates in the UK.
During the clip McGiffin is talking about her first marriage to Radio DJ and television star Chris Evans. She said that if she knew when she had married him that there was absolutely no chance of divorce she would not have done it.
Her marriage to Evans lasted 7 years, although they were separated for a long time before the divorce was finalized in 1998. She has since re-married a man 22 years her junior, Mark Cassidy, and speaking live on the Friday show she said that it is “totally different” this time around.
She went on to say that what she had said in the clip all those years ago had shocked her but she stood by her comments, saying she just knew in her heart it wouldn’t last with her first husband. After his divorce from Carol, Evans went on to meet and marry Billie Piper in 2001 but that only lasted 4 years, seeing the couple split in 2005 and divorcing 2 years later.
He re-married again to his third wife Natasha Shishmanian and they have 4 children together, 3 sons and a daughter. McGiffin decided to play her cards close to her chest by not revealing for a year that she had married Cassisy in a secret ceremony in Bangkok in 2018.
