A source told The Sun: "It is sad but Trevor and Jo realised they weren’t making one another happy any more, and that it was time to move on with their lives.
“Trevor is still very much in demand work-wise, and wanted a fresh start. He feels young and still has a twinkle in his eye.
"He and Josephine have a long history so obviously they are still speaking, and everything is amicable."
They added: "Trevor has moved into his own apartment and friends are joking it is his bachelor pad.
“The split has been no secret from his inner circle, but for now he is very much focusing on his career.”
