Singer Kim Wilde and actor Hal Fowler said they “remain on good terms” when announcing their separation after 25 years of marriage.
The couple he met while they were appearing in the hit West End musical Tommy and were married in September 1996 at Codicote in Hertfordshire. They have two children together.
A joint statement shared on Wilde’s social media accounts said: “Kim Wilde and Hal Fowler would like to announce that they have amicably divorced last year and have divorced.
“No third parties are involved. They still maintain a good relationship and only wish each other the best in the next stages of their lives. No further comment or statement will be made.”
Wilde, 62, is a member of the British music royal family. Her father, Marty, 83, was one of the first to pursue rock and roll music and scored a string of hits in the ’50s and ’60s with songs like Teenager In Love.
When she rose to fame in 1981 with the release of Kids In America, Wilde became an instant household name, with her blow-dried blonde hair copied by young girls all over the UK.
She released a series of hits of the decade in the ’80s and toured with the likes of David Bowie and Michael Jackson.
Wilde kicked off her Greatest Hits tour in September of this year after her shows were postponed due to Covid.
Meanwhile, Fowler, 54, is best known for playing Lieutenant Mimban in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story and 2013’s Dracula, when he played Lord Godalming.
