Seven Year Switch’s Ryan and Cass Thisleton have called time on their marriage.
The former couple – who have three kids together – have decided to go their separate ways despite vowing to make their relationship work after appearing on the TV show last year.
The Beginning Of The End
“I don’t even know what it was that made us come to the decision to separate,” Cass tells New Idea.
“It’s not like we had a big fight or anything like that, I think it was just more a realisation.”

Ryan reveals things turned sour between him and Cass after their son Dex was born stillborn.
“It really impacted our relationship when our son Dex was stillborn four years ago,” says Ryan.
“I really wore down Cass’ patience because I went through severe anxiety and depression after it, and I put the weight of the family on her shoulders to stay strong and keep it together.
“I’ve never forgiven myself for falling into that mental state. Cass has been trying to help me, but there’s only so much she can do.”
‘Staying Together For Your Children Is Not Right’
“A relationship can only survive so long when it’s been through that much,” Cass adds.

“We’ve got beautiful children together and they’ve been the glue that’s been keeping us together for this long.
“Staying together for your children is not the right reason, you need to be happy.”
This comes after the couple welcomed their daughter Mena into the world last year. They are also parents to Emmerson, as well as Cass’ daughter from a previous relationship, Ramani, 10.
