TV presenter Melanie Sykes is said to be "devastated" over the breakdown of her marriage, and she has reportedly begun divorce talks now she realises it can't be saved
Melanie Sykes is said to be "devastated" she won't be able to save her marriage.
The 43-year-old presenter has split from Jack Cockings after she was arrested and given a police caution for common assault on her partner last month.
She has reportedly told friends there is "no going back" now as she starts divorce talks.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, a source revealed: "Mel is devastated that she doesn't seem to be able to save this relationship. She fell for Jack very quickly, but was sure he was the right man.
"They were really happy but things have deteriorated quickly. Most of all she just feels embarrassed about how all of this has played out."
It is said Melanie is finding it "painful" accepting it is the end for her and her 27-year-old partner.
The insider added: "This is not how she thought she would be spending Christmas.
"Of course she still has feelings for Jack - she feels like the odds were stacked against them with the age difference but it's not less painful for her."
