Ageing rocker Ronnie Wood is reportedly planning to marry his young lover Ekaterina Ivanova - news which has devastated his estranged wife Jo.

The Rolling Stones star, 61, split from his partner of 23 years in July, after his affair with 20-year-old Russian waitress Ivanova was exposed in the press.

Just last month his wife declared the divorcing duo are still great friends.

But a pal told the Sunday Mirror that Jo is no longer talking to her estranged husband as she was hoping the pair would eventually get back together.

The pal says: "Jo is devastated and now knows there is no turning back.

"Ronnie wants the divorce to be settled as soon as possible so he can marry Kat. Jo always believed this was just a silly fling but that couldn't be further from the truth.

"She worked really hard to remain on good terms with Ronnie despite what he has done. But now instead of sorting things out he wants to fight out any claims (in court)."
