Price and Andre granted divorce

Reality TV stars Katie Price and Peter Andre have been granted a divorce at London's High Court.

District Judge Bradley pronounced the decrees nisi - the first stage of the divorce proceedings.

It was revealed the pair had both applied for a divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour with neither party accepting blame for the split.

Andre's lawyers will appear in court later to ask that the divorce papers are kept confidential.

Price, 31, who models under the name Jordan and singer Andre, 36, chose to divorce each other.

They filed cross decrees under Price K v Andrea PJ - Andre's real name.

The pair announced their separation in May, but neither side gave a reason for the break-up.

Since then, Price has claimed it was her husband's decision to leave her.

Press attention

The couple met on the reality TV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004 and they married a year later.

They have two children together, four-year-old son Junior and daughter Princess Tiaamii, two.

Price also has a son, Harvey, aged seven, with footballer Dwight Yorke.

In July, Price was interviewed by former newspaper editor Piers Morgan, where she revealed Andre had left her soon after she suffered a miscarriage.

She has since released her latest book and Andre has re-launched his pop career, with a single called Behind Closed Doors, inspired by his relationship with Price.

They have also both starred in their own ITV2 reality TV shows, documenting their lives since the split.
