‘They had been together for so long that obviously they were close, but as friends. The intimacy had drained from the marriage.’

Will, who was awarded an MBE in May for services for Table Tennis, recently said of his pending appearance on Strictly: ‘I’m so proud to be on the show, it’s my family’s favourite show. I have no dance experience at all, but I hope I can do well. I want to inspire people with a disability- that would mean a lot to me. I want to prove to people I can do this.’
Gold medallist Will, who has suffered from arthrogryposis since birth, a rare condition which affects all four of his limbs, was revealed as part of the line up during an appearance on TalkRadio.
