Clue is

Is back with first wife - though to separate (5)

Think it's 'Single' from the definition but can't work out how to get it from the rest!

Any ideas?

Unlikely, as SINGLE has six letters.

try SIEVE ; is back = si. first wife = eve; to sieve is to separate as in the wheat from the chaff

Sorry pressed the button too soon. The answer you're looking for is SI (is back) + EVE (first wife).

No wonder I couldn't get it - I can't even count to 5! Thanks.
