Jackie ‘O’ Henderson breaks down over divorce from husband of 15 years Lee – and reveals the one thing she misses most about being married


KIIS FM radio presenter Jackie ‘O’ Henderson became emotional on Tuesday as she confessed to feeling lonely following her divorce from husband Lee.

The Hendersons, who share custody of 10-year-old daughter Kitty, separated in 2018 after 15 years of marriage and 18 years together.

Jackie, 46, has not publicly dated anyone since the split, but British photographer Lee has moved on with tattooed jujitsu instructor Gabriella Motta.

The single mother broke down during an interview on The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show while admitting she longed for another serious relationship.

Jackie choked back tears as she confessed the thing she missed most about her ‘old life’ was having dinner with someone each night.

‘I’d just love to sit at the dinner table with someone and have dinner, that’s what I yearn for and that’s the thing that I miss most about my old life,’ she said.

As journalist Jessica Rowe comforted Jackie, she continued: ‘It’s a funny thing what we miss. It can be the littlest things, you know, and for me it’s having that family time at the dinner table; that used to be my favourite part of the day.’

She added: ‘So I don’t have that now and I think I will get that back, but as I said I want to wait, you know, little bit longer. And then maybe down the track I will fall in love, that would be nice.’

It comes after twice-divorced Jackie revealed in February she was enjoying being single for the first time in two decades.

She told the Mediaweek podcast she’d been in back-to-back relationships since she was a teenager and was now focusing on her daughter.

‘I’m definitely not ready [to start dating again],’ she said.

‘I do worry about that: am I never going to be ready? Why am I not ready? Why after two-and-a-half years am I not even contemplating it?’

‘Maybe because I’ve been in relationships my whole life… it’s a nice time, if I’m enjoying it, then why not? My daughter is my number one priority,’ she added. 

‘Between the [Kyle and Jackie O] radio show and her, there’s not much room at the moment for anything else.’
