Tamzin Outhwaite and Tom Ellis' divorce was granted in just 100 seconds yesterday (28.04.14)
Tamzin Outhwaite has been granted a divorce from Tom Ellis.
The 'New Tricks' actress filed for legal separation from the 'Miranda' star last September after he admitted to cheating on her, and District Judge Liza Gordon-Saker issued their necree nisi yesterday (28.04.14) after accepting their union had irretrievably broken down because of the actor's adultery.
Neither Tamzin, 43, nor Tom, 35, were in attendance for the 110-second hearing.
The former 'EastEnders' star - who has daughters Florence, five, and Marnie Mae, 20 months, with Tom - filed for divorce last September amid claims the actor had cheated on her while filming TV movie 'Gothica' in the US.
And despite their separation, Tom insisted shortly afterwards he and Tamzin were "moving forward" and doing fine.
He said: "Everyone is OK. We are all good. Work is a good focus."
The former couple had initially tried to work on their marriage before separating for good.
One pal said after news broke Tamzin had filed for divorce: ''Tamzin desperately tried to make it work.
''Tamzin has cited adultery, so she will have a huge advantage when it comes to negotiations. Tom's a reasonable bloke and as it's pretty cut and dried they could be divorced within months.''
The pair were introduced by mutual friend James McAvoy in 2005 and married a year later.
