Jo Wood's son JAMIE wishes his mum had divorced Ronnie Wood a decade ago - because the split has made her so happy.
The Rolling Stones rocker, 61, split from his wife of 23 years last year (08), after his affair with 20-year-old Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova was exposed in the press amid speculation his drinking problem had spiralled out of control.
Jo has since managed to recover from the devastating break-up and is currently starring on U.K. TV talent contest Strictly Come Dancing - a move she never would have made if she was still with her ex, according to Jamie, her son from a previous marriage.
He says, "To be honest, although it's been a difficult year, I think we wish it had happened years ago, given how great she's doing. She's happy, she's dancing, she's out there doing her thing. We tried to get dad sober, but, I guess, in the end it was all too much pressure."
