Manchester DJ announces her divorce live on air

Chelsea Norris tweetPopular Manchester breakfast show host Chelsea Norris has announced her divorce from fellow DJ Matt Spokes live on air.

Norris, co-presenter of Key103 breakfast show Mike and Chelsea in the Morning, told listeners:

“Most of you will know that Matt and I, my husband, have been together eight years and we got married two years ago, that all featured on the show. So it’s with sadness that I now say Matt and I have separated and we are divorcing.”

Matt Spokes hosts a weekly Sunday morning show on the station, and also DJs for sister station Rock FM.

After living together for several years, the couple married in an elaborate ceremony at a 15th Century villa near Verona in Italy in 2011. The build-up to the wedding was covered extensively on air.

The announcement provoked a reaction from listeners on Twitter and Norris later tweeted to thank those who had written to express their best wishes.

“Massive thank you for all your tweets of support.  Massively appreciated x”

Later the DJ tweeted:

“A good friend taught me this important phrase ‘Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together’ Like to think its true!”
