Bill and Melinda Gates have announced they will divorce after 27 years of marriage.

In a joint statement, they said they would continue their charity work together with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, but that "we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives".

The pair have an estimated net worth of $130 billion, making them one of the world's wealthiest couples. Bill Gates stepped down from Microsoft's board last year to focus on philanthropy.

Cal Thomas and Marion McKeone discussed this in our weekly US slot, as well as tomorrow's decision from Facebook about whether or not to reinstate Donald Trump's account.
