Kym Marsh has confirmed the sad news that her relationship with fiancé Dan Hooper is over for good, after sources claimed that was the case at the weekend.
The Coronation Street actress was full of praise for her now ex-fiancé, calling him a “fantastic, lovely guy,” after expressing how gutted she is that things didn’t work out.
WAH. Poor Kym.
Speaking to OK! magazine, the 38-year-old revealed: “I’m very sad to have to tell you that Dan Hooper and I have split up.
“I was hoping things would sort themselves out, but for one reason or another it doesn’t feel like we can fix things or get back on track so we’ve decided to go our separate ways.”
Despite her heartbreak, Kym had nothing but nice things to say about her former fiancé, continuing: “Dan’s a fantastic, lovely guy and I’ve never been happier than when things were working with us but sometimes things just don’t feel right no matter how much you want it to.
“I know some people will say we rushed in too quickly and that things got too serious too fast, but I think you have to follow your heart and have no regrets.”
She added: “I’m sure Dan and I will keep in touch. He’s been a hugely positive influence in not only my life but David, Emilie and Polly’s lives too and I know they will keep in touch with him.”
This is really sad news, and we can only hope that the two do remain good friends.
It was rumoured that they’d had gone their separate ways at the weekend, as their ‘relationship break’ that they took eight months after they started dating didn’t work out.
A source told The Sun: “There are a lot of feelings still there, but the engagement was too much, too soon, and seems to have driven a wedge between them.
“Neither was prepared to go through with the marriage when it wasn’t right. It wouldn’t have been fair on them, or the kids involved.”
Mum-of-four Kym is, understandable, said to be absolutely gutted, with the insider adding: “Kym is heartbroken. She carried on wearing her [engagement] ring after she and Dan decided to take a break and hoped they’d get back together.
“But it has become clear there is no way back for them.
“Kym’s friends loved Dan to bits and thought they made a great couple. They are gutted it hasn’t worked out.”
