David Walliams and Lara Stone granted 'quickie' divorce

David Walliams has divorced his wife Lara Stone.

The 44-year-old TV star and author, who is best known for his comedy partnership with Matt Lucas and as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent, was granted a decree nisi at a brief hearing at the Central Family Court in London before District Judge Heather MacGregor.

The order in the undefended petition for divorce was granted on the grounds of the 'unreasonable behaviour' of 31-year-old Lara, the mother of the couple’s two-year-old son Alfred.

David, who brought the proceedings under his real name of Williams, and Lara began a trial separation in March.

They were the last on a list of 21 couples to be granted 'quickie' divorces today.
