Lydia Bright has been heartbroken because she separated from Lee Cronin's boyfriend just 12 weeks after revealing that they talked about getting married.
Former Towie star, 28, confirmed that the two-year romance did not "succeed" in a post on Instagram, calling it "the hardest thing".
He told fans tonight: "Sometimes relationships don't work but have time to reflect on how lucky I am in my life, what I have achieved and who is around me fills my heart with so much love.
"Sometimes the hardest and the right things are the same.
"This is the next chapter."
Lydia gave no reason for the breakup, which occurred three months after she announced to Lee and expressed her love for him in a careless magazine interview.
After appearing in front of Hello! in October, Lydia told her about her perfect relationship.
Lee, 32, also revealed that they had talked about getting married and he insisted their love would never fail.
He said: "We have talked about marriage and having a family. We want to enter the house first, settle down – but they are our future plans, of course.
"When you know, you know. When Lyd and I meet, we click very well on everything. We are very close. Often things fail, but not with us."
They met at a nightclub in Ibiza in 2017 and became inseparable, but then separated after only four months together.
They then revived the romance and moved together in January.
During a trip to Marrakech last year, Lydia insisted Lee was the only one.
Posting a photo of herself hugging her husband, she shared a hearty emoji and wrote: "That will always be yours."
