Simon Dallow and Alison Mau advised TVNZ this morning that they have separated.
They have been together for 19 years, married for 13 and have two children aged 8 and 11. Their children remain their most important priority and their separation is amicable.
Despite their high profile jobs, TVNZ see this as a very private and personal matter.
Therefore TVNZ, Simon and Alison will be making no further comment.
