Just days before his wife announced that they had split, Jay Blades shared a rather cryptic post to his Instagram page. Fitness star Lisa Marie Zbozen, who tied the knot with Jay back in November 2022, appeared to confirm that she and Jay had separated in an emotional post.

She wrote: "I probably should be really angry but I'm just incredibly sad about the whole thing right now. I don't think I've ever cried so much."

The 44 year old fitness guru added: "I will admit I'm crying as I type this as I can't believe this is even real. I hope you don't mind if I just have a few days trying to figure out my life as I'm currently in a spare room with a few essentials. I don't know what else to say. All my love, A very broken Lisa-Marie x."

In the days before this Jay had shared rather cryptic post, which included a photo of himself sat on a bench looking away from the camera. He captioned this: "THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

"If we as a Community don’t Step up to help each other, then who Will? My Community, [prayer hands emoji] Thank You So Much, for Stepping Up for Me."

Jay, 54, and Lisa tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on the beach in Barbados in November 2022 with just 15 guests present. The Repair Shop host described the day as "perfect" at the time.

He had also sweetly revealed that he had "tunnel vision" as he saw Lisa in her stunning white gown and they shared their vows with one another. In a sweet nod to his role on TV, Jay and Lisa swapped rings designed by The Repair Shop's jewellery expert Richard Talman - with both rings containing each other's birthstones.

Lisa's announcement of the split comes just days after Jay announced he was taking a break from social media after attending the funeral of his uncle, who he said was "murdered a few weeks ago."

Announcing the shocking news on his Instagram page, Jay said: "So what I'm intending on doing is this... I'm coming off social media for a bit, and I'll be back in a bit. Going to go and get some therapy and just chill out. Yeah, 'cause when things happen, sometimes you really need to take stock and just relax. So, I'll be back soon."
