Victoria announced the separation news from husband Scott on Twitter last year.

Upon the news, she wrote:

"After ten years together I am very sad to say that Scott and I have grown apart."

The post further read: 

"Despite our best efforts in trying to make our marriage work, we have come to the decision to go our separate ways. It has been an extremely difficult time and a tough decision to make." 

"We want to look ahead to the future and stay positive. We would both gratefully appreciate our privacy being respected as we navigate what is a deeply personal time for us."

The former pair married after dating for five years and separated nearly after ten years of togetherness.

Both the couple met in 2008 during the Beijing Olympics ceremony when Gardner was still a coaching team member of Team GB’s cycling.

Victoria and her ex-husband Scott ended their relationship after revealing she suffered depression and contemplated suicide after she failed an attempt to climb the Mt. Everest.
