Melanie, who is 16 years senior to Jack soon got separated just after seven months of matrimonial bliss. Just a month after the divorce got finalized on May 2016, Melanie Sykes confessed about her wrong decision of getting married to the wrong person.
The 46 years old TV personality admitted,
“The divorce was the easy bit. (The hard bit was) being married to the wrong person.”
“It’s always difficult to break up with somebody, but it’s been for the best and I knew it at the time and that’s why we’re not together.”
The mother of two, who got married twice, for now, sees no point in getting married but resists the thought as she proclaimed,
“I never say never any more, because every time I do, I end up doing the opposite thing.”
Well, this is not the first time, she made the wrong decision, but indeed she previously got divorced from her first husband.
Children With First Husband; Son With Autism
Before getting married to Jack, Melanie was previously married to actor Daniel Caltagirone. The couple tied the knot in January 2001.
She shares two children with Daniel, Roman (2002) and Valentino Luca (2004). Their younger son Valentino was diagnosed with autism in 2006.
Years after matrimonial bliss, the pair divorced on 2009 citing ‘unreasonable behavior’ as the reason, but now the split seems to be amicable as they appeared together on This Morning on June 2016 where they talked about their son who has high functioning autism, as per Melanie Sykes.
The pair talked about their search for a school for their autistic child. Melanie explained,
“He is considered to have highly functional autism so when he spent a week at a school just for those with autism, he had to be moved to the year above. He is too highly functioning for an autistic school but not high functioning enough for mainstream school.”

More recently, Melanie Sykes chatted about her son with Hello magazine. She mentioned how ‘much she enjoys being with her boys. She proclaimed,
“They're older, they're boys, they're very independent. My youngest has autism so he needs a little bit more help than Roman but generally they're not toddlers anymore, they're not babies you know, so my life is a lot easier in some respects... I love them being who they are right now."
And for now, Melanie Sykes is busy more into parenting and with her new show Blind Date. And she seems to be on a secret dating ground for a long period.
