Marriage of shamed PR guru Clifford over

A JUDGE has signalled the end of the four-year marriage of jailed PR expert Max Clifford.

Clifford and his wife Jo were granted a decree nisi at a hearing lasting less than two minutes in the Central Family Court in London.

Neither was at yesterday's hearing, although each was represented by a lawyer.

Clifford, 71, was given an eight-year jail term earlier this month at Southwark Crown Court after being convicted of a string of indecent assaults on four women between 1977 and 1984.

Mrs Clifford filed for divorce on the grounds of "unreasonable behaviour", and claimed Clifford's behaviour had affected her health.

She wrote: "I suffered from stress and had heart palpitation and saw a specialist."

Mrs Clifford signed the petition on August 14 last year. She also noted the date of the "final incident" she relied on as August 18, 2012 - nearly four months before Clifford's arrest on suspicion of sex offences.
