Dawn French and Lenny Henry's 26-year marriage has ended after a quickie divorce.
French, 53, was granted the divorce in just 3 minutes 55 seconds yesterday on the grounds of Lenny's "unreasonable behaviour".
Henry did not dispute the claims and also agreed to pay Dawn's court costs.
District Judge, Penny Cushing, declared the marriage over, saying that it had "irretrievably broken down."
Court papers revealed that comedian Henry's unreasonable behaviour was ongoing and that they couple had not lived together for six months.
The pair met in 1981 at Covent Garden's comedy club, marrying three years later. They adopted their daughter, Billie, in 1991.
They announced their separation back in April, saying they simply "fell out of love", but close friends say that the marriage never recovered after allegations that Lenny had an affair with a receptionist in 1999.
