Chloe Madeley Stuns on Girls’ Night Out Amid Public Drama with Estranged Husband James Haskell

Chloe Madeley cut a glamorous figure as she embraced her new single status on a girls’ night out on Friday night. 

The fitness guru, 36, took a rare night off from parenting her daughter Bodhi, 16 months, to party the night away with a pal. 

Chloe headed out a week after her estranged husband James Haskell made a very public swipe about her and their now broken marriage on stage in front of a live audience. 

But the television star brushed off her recent split as she enjoyed some quality time with her friends. 

Chloe looked chic in a silk top as she enjoyed a drink at a bar after getting her hair and make-up done.  

 The personal trainer, who is the daughter of Richard and Judy, then took to Instagram to share a pouty photo of herself and a pal a little worse for wear.

James, 38, spoke out about his marriage as he appeared in Bath last week for the last of a 17-show run of World Cup Afterparty: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly – a live version of his rugby podcast.

Joined by podcast co-hosts Mike Tindall and Alex Payne, the athlete spoke out about his relationship with Chloe – from whom he split in September – and said she is unreasonable, overly critical and insensitive, and unfair in arguments.

While James had no issue making subtle jibes at his estranged wife, the pair have continued to live together while they co-parent their daughter Bodhi, 16 months. 

The now exes have remained friends since their split for their daughter, but their united appearances in recent weeks sparked reconciliation rumours. 

James joked he’d been hiding all this money offshore to avoid having to pay out to Chloe in their divorce before claiming he actually had no money left at all for her because he had been cancelled so many times since the split.

James began the two-hour show with a rant about the divorce, addressing the audience by saying: ‘First of all, ladies and gentlemen, I can see some of you doing it already very unsubtly – please, no filming of this show. I’m in the papers enough at the moment!’ 

He continued: ‘Please don’t film it, post it up on social media. What happens now is that whatever I say goes out of my mouth and into your own personal filters. And some of you, you may have had a bit of a troubled childhood, or get offended very easily. 

‘I don’t want you to reflect on what I say and think you’re offended and then posting that up. Because I need the cash because I am about to lose half of it.

‘It’s true. That is if she (Chloe) can find it. I always forget where I put it – the Cayman Islands, Switzerland. No, at the moment I haven’t got a pot to p**s in.’

Mike then jumped in to joke: ‘I love the fact you think you are clever enough to hide your cash,’ as James replied: ‘It’s just the stuff I bag under the bed. The amount of times I have been cancelled, I haven’t got a pot to p**s in.’

Moments later, James set up an anecdote about his friend Mike – who is married to Princess Anne’s daughter Zara – seemingly with the sole purpose of having an unsubtle pop at Chloe again.

He began: ‘Mike’s personality, actually as Zara told us, is “annoyingly honest Mike”. He sounds like a great person, but he’s not. He comes out after eight bottles of rosé and three bottles of red wine.

‘Then he basically tells you everything that you have ever done wrong and where you have gone wrong with complete disregard for any sensitivity – or anything he has ever done wrong – and also is completely out of context. And he won’t be reasoned with and he will not be argued with, right.’

After a short pause for dramatic effect, James continued: ‘Sounds like my wife actually’. 

He then corrected himself to say: ‘Ex-wife actually,’ before adding: ‘No. It’s not official yet. Don’t put that in the papers.’

Later on, James recalled a story where he had ‘to go and meet a lawyer who is a friend of mine’ before adding ‘He’s now more of a business partner’ – a reference to the large amount of time he has recently spent with divorce lawyers.

Chloe announced in September she and her husband had separated after five years, just days after their tumultuous relationship played out on her reality series Chloe Madeley: A Family Affair.

Her father Richard Madeley, 67, said he was proud of how the couple have handled their split. 

‘It’s a very civilised, grown-up situation,’ he told the Daily Mail at the Christmas At Kenwood light trail in Hampstead, north London.

‘We’re still family. The split between James and Chloe is all very amicable and they’re getting on really well.’ 

He added of his son-in-law: ‘He was round the house three or four nights ago having a drink, and we’re all having Christmas lunch together.’

The couple, who married in 2018, first fuelled speculation about their split after Chloe emerged without her wedding ring as she partied with friends – shortly after James was pictured chatting to a mystery blonde outside a London nightspot.

Chloe confirmed she had split from James in a joint statement released in October on Instagram.

In it, the couple announced: ‘Chloe and I mutually decided separate at the end of September, 2023.

‘We had not planned on releasing a statement at this time – certainly not while the television show was airing – but constant speculation about our marriage has, unfortunately, forced our hand.

‘Beyond this statement, we will not be speaking about this matter publicly, and we would request privacy at this time.

‘Our sole focus now is our beautiful daughter. We shall continue to co-parent with nothing but love.’

Sharing his own statement to Instagram, James added: ‘It’s with a lot of sadness I write this post, but unfortunately, in the world we live in, it has to be done.

‘My priority is my daughter’s and Chloe’s happiness and security. For that reason, I won’t be commenting any further.’
