As per The Express a Paddy Power spokesperson also said they would be suspended any betting weeks before the couple’s 19th wedding anniversary:

However, the couple hit back amid the storm surrounding their marriage and according to a statement, as per The Mirror, representatives for the couple said: “There is no statement due or divorce. This is just fake social media news. This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.

“There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news.”
