Rowan Atkin­son has been given a “quickie” di­vorce from his wife of 24 years Sune­tra. The ‘Mr Bean’ ac­tor - who sep­a­rated from the BBC make-up artist in 2014 - was granted a de­cree nisi by Dis­trict Judge Stephen Alder­son at Lon­don’s Cen­tral Fam­ily Court to­day at a hear­ing nei­ther he nor Sune­tra at­tended. The cou­ple’s di­vorce was given on the grounds of “un­rea­son­able be­hav­ior” and was re­port­edly fi­nal­ized in less than a minute. Rowan, 60, and 54-year-old Sune­tra met in the 1980s when she was work­ing as a BBC make-up artist and he was one of the cor­po­ra­tion’s main com­edy stars and they went on to tie the knot in 1990. They have two chil­dren to­gether, daugh­ter Lily Atkin­son, 20, and son Ben­jamin Atkin­son, 22. The cou­ple were planning to build an £11 mil­lion home in Ox­ford­shire when they split in 2014 and Sune­tra has since moved to a £21 mil­lion Lon­don man­sion while Rowan has a £4 mil­lion base in the UK cap­i­tal. He is cur­rently dat­ing 32-year-old co­me­dian Louise Ford - who stars in Sky TV sit­com ‘Chick­ens’.
