This Morning chef Tom Brown splits from wife after only five months of marriage
This Morning and Great British Menu star Tom Brown has reportedly split from his wife less than six months after tying the knot.
The 33-year-old TV personality, who runs the Michelin-starred restaurant Cornerstone in Hackney Wick, married Julieanne Soto in December 2020 after a whirlwind relationship of just five months.
However, according to Daily Mail , the couple are now separating and Julieanne has told pals that the marriage is over.
Neither has publicly commented confirming or denying the break-up.
Julieanne published a hilarious round-up of their romance to announce their nuptials last year, alongside a picture of her in bed wearing her ring.
She wrote: “In the biggest plot twist of 2020 (if not the biggest since M Night Shyamalans’ Blockbuster sensation The Sixth Sense).
“I met [a] guy in July, decided to find a house together in August then proposed to him in bed eating pizza in September and we are finally getting hitched in 3 days time.”
She ended the message by adding emojis of a bride and a ring, and added: ‘That’ll do pig.’
Julieanne’s Instagram account has now been made private.
The Mirror has contacted Tom’s reps for further comment.
The break-up comes as Tom’s career continues to soar, with his debut appearance on This Morning last year causing fans to dub him the ‘hot chef’.
He also left an impression on host Phillip Schofield, who described Tom after one segment as the “Heston Blumenthal of the fish world”.
Tom, known for his tattoos, had previously appeared on Great British Menu in 2018, reaching the finals.
He’s since returned as a guest judge in further series.
Mentored by chef Nathan Outlaw at St Enodoc Hotel in Rock, Tom moved to London to be head chef at Outlaw’s restaurant at The Capital hotel in Knightsbridge.
Tom now owns and runs Hackney Wick’s Cornerstone restaurant, with a menu inspired largely on sharing plates and seafood dishes.
Chefs prepare the food in an open kitchen as customers can watch from a marble-topped bar.
Launching in 2018, they earned their first coveted Michelin star in 2021.
Celebrating the massive achievement, Tom shared a tattoo of a Michelin star online and wrote: “The proudest moment of my career so far, but I genuinely can’t take the credit for this.
“It’s all down to my incredible staff who give so much and work so hard every day, thank you so much.
“Also to [Nathan Outlaw] for the training, love and support, without the things I learnt from him this would never have been possible.”
