Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux might have called time on their marriage, but not on their friendship.

The pair have enjoyed a sun-drenched holiday together in LA, despite announcing their split just two weeks ago.

Danielle, 36, shared an image of the two at dinner with pals including radio presenter Richard Bacon and captioned it pointedly, “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.”

Gary retweeted the picture and made a joke about their split on a photo of Danielle posing in shades, writing, “Dinner? Too soon?”

The 55-year-old has been regularly spotted out and about with aspiring actress Danielle in LA, where she is currently based for work.

Although the public only found out about their quickie divorce when they were granted a decree nisi at Southampton County Court earlier this month, pal Piers Morgan revealed the split happened last summer when he saw Danielle without her ring at a dinner party, but the pair have been determined to remain friends.



In his column for Event magazine, he wrote: “She told me they were splitting because she wanted to have more kids and live in Los Angeles to pursue her acting career.”

He continued: “They genuinely are still great friends, and have managed to separate with the kind of maturity, decency, intelligence and mutual solicitousness for each other’s welfare that all the warring couples of the world should seek to emulate.”

A source told the Mirror the two were on very amicable terms and wanted to remain in the lives of each other’s children.

Gary has four children with his ex-wife Michelle: George, Harry, Tobias and Angus.

Danielle has a 14-year-old daughter, Ella.
