Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani had ''so much counselling'' in the wake of their marriage split.

The Bush frontman went his separate ways from the 'Used to Love You' hitmaker back in 2016 and he has now revealed the pair underwent lots of therapy before deciding to split for good.

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women, he said: ''We had so much counselling, so much counselling, I could be a counsellor. I tried, I tried hard but that's the way it goes. But when you look at it, in a weird way, there are no accidents.

''Life works out how it should and I made sure I did everything I could so that if I was sat here two years on, I know I tried everything I could as opposed to being steadfast or arrogant or assuming I didn't need help or we didn't need help. I kind of embraced the help.''

Meanwhile, Gavin previously revealed he is trying to ''move on'' from Gwen, with whom he shares Kingston, 11, Zuma, nine, and Apollo, three.

He said: ''I don't think you ever get over it. You just move on, and that's what I've tried to do. Divorce is a very painful thing to go through. But we both remain committed to being amicable co-parents, and that's very important to me.

''After I got divorced last year the songs I began writing were quite maudlin and depressing and the record company told me they were just too sad. Well, I suppose I was sad, after being with Gwen for almost 20 years. So I had to try and find a balance, which I think I have.''
