Money can’t buy me love as £161 million lottery winners divorce

They have two grown up children.

Christine, 62, and Colin, 71, announced their separation last April.

At the time a joint statement said:

“It is with deep regret that Chris and Colin Weir confirm they have been living apart for some time and intend to divorce amicably.

“They ask that the family’s privacy is respected at this time and there will be no further comment.”

However, a friend described their marriage problems as a “bit of an open secret” to those who lived nearby.

She added: “It’s a real shame because they’ve obviously been through so much together.”.
