Rumour has it that the pair has begun discussing the terms of their separation…through text messages. Nicholas’s rep EEG Groups is also reportedly preparing to announce the couple’s divorce soon.

“Stay together for the kids”

Nic’s EEG manager, Mani Fok was quoted as saying: “He is currently filming and many action scenes require his participation rather than using a stunt double. Earlier, Nic filmed a scene where he had to jump from an eight storey building. He did not tell EEG in advance about this stunt. I want him to focus his concentration first and not think any troubling thoughts.”

Mani indicated that after completing “The Viral Factor”, Nic will quickly film a mainland series.

Mani was confident that there was no third party in Nic and Cecilia’s relationship. “For a man who stays home aside from work, it’s very hard for him to keep a mistress.”

Some officials saw the programme, which many people would consider innocent, as subversive because it propelled individuals to fame based on audience votes. It demonstrated the power of popular opinion in China – a constant concern for the Communist party in a country where people cannot elect their leaders ….
