Rolling Stones rock star Ronnie Wood has been divorced by his wife Jo on the grounds of his admitted adultery.

District Judge Anne Aitken pronounced the decrees nisi at London's High Court - which marks the penultimate stage of the divorce proceedings.

Jo Wood, 54, who took part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing, was married to the musician for 24 years.

The couple split last year after the musician, 64, began a relationship with another woman.

In the divorce documents, which have been made public, the person with whom the star committed adultery was not named.

However, Wood's relationship with Ekaterina Ivanova, 20, was widely covered in the tabloid press.

Neither Jo or Ronnie Wood, who have two children together, were present in court.
