Impractical Jokers star Joe Gatto and his estranged wife were spotted out separately for the first time since announcing their split earlier this year.

The 45-year-old reality television star was seen on Monday without his wedding ring, and wore a beige hoodie and a face mask while Bessy was also pictured out ringless.

Joe Gatto took to social media at the end of the year with a shocking message announcing that he was leaving the show and also splitting from his wife of eight years amid 'some issues' in his personal life.

The remaining three stars of the joke show, Q, Murr and Sal shared a 'saddened' response to the announcement but vowed to keep the show going even without Gatto.

'Bessy and I have decided to amicably part ways, so now I need to focus on being the best father and co-parent to our two incredible kids,' he wrote. 

The couple married in 2013 and share daughter Milana Francis and son Remington Joseph.

In a joint statement shared on Murray's Instagram, the three hosts vowed to keep things going for the fans despite Gatto's absence.

'After all these years, we never imagined making Impractical Jokers without Joe,' the statement read. 

'While we are saddened to see him go, we want to keep making people laugh, keep our relationship with Impractical Jokers fans going, and keep working with members of our team that we consider family.'

Q, Murr and Sal added that as a trio they will get back to production sometime in January.
