It comes as Mr Osborne, now editor of the Evening Standard newspaper, is rumoured to have his eye on a return to high office.

He recently endorsed Boris Johnson to be the next Tory leader despite the two men previously falling out over Brexit.

The Osbornes said in a statement this evening: “George and Frances Osborne have sadly decided to divorce after 21 years of marriage.

“This is a long thought-through and mutual decision. They remain good friends and jointly devoted to their wonderful children.”
