The British funnyman and Dutch model separated early last year (15) after five years of marriage and their union was officially dissolved seven months later when they were granted a degree nisi at London's Central Family Court.

It emerged the former couple, who have a three-year-old son named Alfred, were still warring over their $23million (£19 million) fortune when they attended a trial hearing at London's High Court on Monday (07Nov16). Mr. Justice MACDonald read arguments about the division of assets and banned the reporting of any evidence presented in court.

Their lawyers told Justice MACDonald in a short court session on Tuesday (08Nov16) they had settled the case and had agreed a plan to split their property, which could not be revealed.

MACDonald said he was “extremely pleased” that they had reached a compromise under such “difficult and emotional circumstances” and called the outcome "fair", according to The Sun newspaper.

Walliams' lawyer also said the Britain's Got Talent judge was pleased the case was closed.
