The EastEnders legend's relationship with Jane was ended by a judge at the High Court on Thursday (January 31) without either parties present.

The Dirty Den star, 65, was involved in a sordid tabloid newspaper "scandal", but it was his wife's "unreasonable behaviour" that was given in court as grounds for the divorce.

The judge ruled that Grantham's wife had "behaved in such a way" that the actor "cannot reasonably be expected to live with [her]", reports The Daily Telegraph.

In 2004, Grantham was pictured on a front page exposing himself on a webcam from his dressing room to a 23-year-old blonde woman, who turned out to be an undercover reporter.

While pleading that he "was set up", EastEnders bosses took the decision to write out his character Den Watts, who had made a shock comeback from the dead, a year later in 2005.
