Janet Street-Porter admitted she lied in order to get a divorce from one of her four marriages because the court system was too slow
Janet Street-Porter has lied to get a divorce.
The 70-year-old journalist has been divorced four times and during a conversation about the long-winded process on 'Loose Women' on Tuesday (31.10.17), she admitted she has told a porky pie in past to speed up the official separation.
She said: "I think the current system encourages people to lie, and I have lied. I've been to court and I've made statements to get divorces that are lies because I want to get divorced and I cannot wait two years and I cannot see the point of it
"And I will not be. In the past I would not be deterred from getting divorced because I wanted that person out of my life."
Janet first married Tim Street-Porter in 1967 but the couple separated in 1975.
She then went on to tie the knot with Tony Elliott but their relationship only lasted two years before she filed for divorce.
She then married Frank Cvitanovich but, once again, they only stayed together for two years before they split up in 1981.
Her fourth husband was David Sorkin but they were only together two years until 1999.
Today's episode was a Halloween special and Janet had no qualms dressing up as Wonder Woman because she thoroughly enjoys putting on fancy dress.
She said: "The hair - it's two wigs. One on top of the other. It's the only costume I'm happy in. I like wearing fancy dress, as long as I look really good in the fancy dress."
