Andrew Ridgeley splits from wife of 25 years

Former Wham! star Andrew Ridgeley and his wife Keren Woodward have split.
The Wake Me Up Before You Go Go singer tells The Mirror Online that he and the Bananarama star are still great friends, but their marriage has fallen flat after 25 years.
“It wasn’t really working for either of us,” he says. “As close friends, with different lives, we see each other as circumstances allow and retain a great affection for one another.”
Keren and Andrew also split briefly in 2015, but this time the break-up appears to be permanent and Woodward, who is currently working on a full Bananarama reunion, moved out of the couple’s home in Cornwall earlier this year (17).
She has confirmed she and her estranged husband are still friends, adding he will accompany her on the upcoming Bananarama tour, alongside longtime bandmate Sara Dallin and the returning Siobhan Fahey.
“We’ve gone our separate ways,” she says. “These things happen unfortunately, but we still speak. In fact, I saw him recently when I was back home in Cornwall. He’s actually coming to quite a few of the dates on the new Bananarama tour.”
The reunion tour begins in the U.K. later this month (Nov17).
The marriage break-up news comes less than 11 months after Ridgeley’s Wham! partner George Michael died at his home on Christmas Day (25Dec17).
