I know many people won't be surprised by this but seems very sudden after CBB, I thought they'd have stuck it out a while longer for the deals etc.

Hopefully he'll meet somebody more suitable and she'll get rid of those ridiculous implants now (if not her back is going to be knackered in a few years time).

Really don't know why you feel sorry for him. He married a 16 year old when he was 50 years old and that's digusting, especially to the parents who allowed that to happen. Knew that marriage wasn't gonna last because once Courtney has sucked all the money out of him and got her 15 mins of Fame, they were gonna end.

As soon as she realised she was capable of doing things on her own...when she was in the BBH ... She realised he suffocated her

I do actually feel a bit sorry for him. Always thought it was some kind of arrangement, rather than a proper relationship and was to boost both their profiles. She will no doubt go on to do other work and he will be remembered as the washed up actor creep that married a child. Still they brought it on themselves, I get the impression he may be stony broke too.

Knew this would happen. Reminded me of Sonny and Cher many, many years ago. It was obvious that as soon as she was seen as an individual she would split from him.

Lets be honest, they have both used each other to get what they wanted - afraid it was inevitable.

Ahh you beat me to it OP

From the moment they got hitched I was wondering how long it would take before they announced it was all a hoax...and to be honest, I'm more surprised THAT didn't happen.

It's a terribly sad affair all round; Doug is a fine actor for whom it'll inevitably take years to be accepted back into Hollywood circles- if at all. Courtney is a (n alleged) teen who's in a hurry to grow up and promote everything wrong with the celebrity culture.

It was obvious, from the small amount of CBB that I saw, that she wasn't going to stick around with him.

Me too BIB, I almost wish they had.
It is a sad affair but I think he is going to come out far worse off and so I can't help but feel a bit of pity for him really. Still his choice and he should have thought it through better. I actually started to think he was called Doug Stodden.

I think Doug might get together with Lauren Harries. Doug seems like a very kind and caring man, whose calm and loving. Just the kind of man Lauren would fall for. Hopefully they would have their own reality show.

Its not surprising that they spilt. She was very cold and emotionless when they were reunited during a task on BB

Not really surprised. From what I saw, there didn't seem to be much passion from her towards him when she was on Celebrity Big Brother.

Totally, you'd have had to have been blind not to have picked up on the body language!

She most likely realized, that there is more to life than this/him.

I don't feel anything for him, he married a 16 year old child. I actually feel bad for her, she has parents who allowed her to get married to a 50 year old man at the age of 16.

Sad but inevitable.I liked Courtney in BB . She has a lovely kind heart toward the more needy and was her own person without getting into a gang.Doug is a nice guy but this was always going to be temporary.
I wish them both well.

Well we didn't see that coming did we?

She's now achieved her objective of becoming famous on his money, he served his purpose.

A pretty young girl (well she was once before she turned herself into Barbie) isn't going to want to stay married to an old man.

Yup, more celebs using the 'sanctity of marriage' as a publicity contract for their image and reality shows.

I actually do like her. She's quite sweet and obviously the brains of the operation really. He's just...odd. Okay, but odd, spaced out, disconnected somehow.

But she's worryingly turning into Jocelyn Wildenstein before my eyes it seems. Stop with the enhancements, C!
