This all seems to be happening very quickly.

David Williams and Lara Stone are reportedly set to finalise their separation only six months after the pair split. 

The estranged couple -who agreed to a trial separation in March – will ask a judge to formally end their five year marriage at London's Central Family Court today. 

If their plea is accepted, their marriage of half a decade could be officially over in the next six weeks. 

Lara and David have a reported wealth of almost £19m (€26m)- David has a net worth of £16.3m (€21m) and Lara £2.6m (€3.6m).

The news of their split came as a big surprise to friends and fans despite the fact they have barely been seen together since 2014.

David and Lara both attended Sir Elton John's wedding to David Furnish and two days later watched the London production of Edwards Scissorhands together, which was the last time they were seen out in public together.

They had their first child together in 2012, Alfred Williams, who Lara took with her when she left David.
