Linda Robson and husbands ‘non-negotiable’ as they split after decades – expert

Loose Women: Linda Robson hits that she is now single

Linda Robson and Mark Dunford allegedly exhibited “some expression of warmth” in their final photographs, according to a body language expert.

On Tuesday, (November 14), it was revealed that the Loose Women star and her husband of 33 years had gone their separate ways.

In a recent interview Linda, 65, said that while Mark, 62, was a “good dad” she felt like “enough was enough” and called time on their relationship.

Following their split, body language expert Judi James has analysed their final photographs together, which were taken on a dog walk in April.

Speaking exclusively to, Judi said: “Arguably the UK’s answer to Will [Smith] and Jada [Pinkett-Smith] when it comes to shocking, long-term relationship splits.

“Linda and her husband’s body language suggests they are thankfully steering clear of any of that style of confusing, mixed-message, A-list displays.”

The author continued to say that mature relationships often “work on many levels” and the participants often slip into “roles”.

Discussing the photographs, which were taken in April of this year, Judi continued: “Here they are in ‘doting grandparents’ mode, which brings on a display of mutual teamwork and bonding.

“Their attention is all over the children and the dog and their display of unity as a couple and as a family looks almost non-negotiable for them.

“Their smiles for the camera look like smiles of pride and good humour and are even-based, with her smile as doting as his.”

The body language expert added that “some expression of warmth” features in the photographs, while “no hardening of the features that could suggest enmity”.

Linda and Mark tied the knot in 1990 and went on to have two children together – singer-songwriter Louis, 31, and Roberta, 27.

The ITV panellist also shares a 40-year-old daughter called Lauren with Tony Tyler, whom she was in a relationship with for 11 years.

Earlier this year, Linda surprised Loose Women viewers when she admitted she had been celibate for two years.

Speaking on the afternoon mainstay at the time, she said: “Can I just say I’ve been celibate for two years.”

The 65-year-old then went on to thank Denise Welch for gifting her a “lady friend” in light of the information.

According to The Sun, Linda claimed that she is a “very sociable person” while her ex-husband was more of a home bird.

“You find out you don’t want any of the same things. I’m a very sociable person and I like going out.

“Mark doesn’t enjoy any of that, he likes to stay at home. He’s not got loads of mates that he goes out drinking with or anything.”

She added that she believes that is when “things start to change” in a relationship.

Following the split, Linda said she has been “keeping busy” and has plans to travel with actor Lesley Joseph later this month.
