Kingsman star Colin Firth has split from his wife Livia Giuggioli after 22 years of marriage.

The actor confirmed their separation in a statement today (December 13), insisting that the two of them "maintain a close friendship".

The joint statement from their publicists read: "They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children."

Colin and Livia share two children, 16-year-old Matteo and 18-year-old Luca.

The Kingsman franchise is set to delve into prequel territory with its next entry, The King's Man, but Colin will still be returning for a third Kingsman film alongside Taron Egerton.

And, based on Taron's comments at ACE Comic Con Midwest back in November, Kingsman 3 is further along than you might have expected.

Taron didn't give too much away, but he did reveal that there's already a script in place and he thinks it's "a really neat idea".

"The plan, at the moment, is that we'd like to do another one, one more time. [Eggsy] was the role that kind of started my film career so I’m always going to feel, you know, a great fondness for the part," he said.

"I would like to do one more because frankly, I'd like to say goodbye to [Eggsy] in a befitting way and to finish the trilogy. All good things come to an end.

"It was always imagined as a trilogy and I think it'd be great to finish the story off because I've loved playing the character."

The King's Man has a release date of February 14, 2020.
