‘The passion and the need for hard work in radio has stayed with me until this day. So I’m not sure where you are but thank you,’ she finished.

Phil and Jackie previously worked together co-hosting the Hot30 Countdown in the 1990s.

They met when an 18-year-old Jackie called into the radio show Phil was hosting at the time to enter a competition, and were married just a year later.

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