Mark Ramprakash divorces in 58 seconds

Mark Ramprakash has filed for divorced from his estranged wife Vandana after 17 years of marriage.

The former England cricketer was granted the divorce in just 58 seconds by district judge Martin Berry in London last week, while neither of them was in attendance.

Despite evidence in 2007 that the winner of Strictly Come Dancing had been having a six-year affair with single mother Sadia Saleem, the grounds for divorce on the paper was cited as "unreasonable behaviour" on the part of Vandana.

Reports claim that Ms Ramprakash had admitted unreasonable behaviour after being served divorce papers and objecting to pay legal fees.

One option for couples wanting to separate is to file a DIY Divorce and avoid large legal costs.

Court papers said the marriage had "broken down irretrievably".

Mrs Ramprakash had "behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the respondent", it also stated.

The ex-couple will share custody of their two children.
