Eddie also opted to turn the comments off on the post.

Denise announced the news on of the split via her Instagram, writing: "Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie.

"It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple. I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship.

"I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made. We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time, especially for our children."

A statement from her rep added: "Denise is understandably upset about the news, but she remains optimistic for the future. Her priority is looking after her daughter and continuing to work on the many exciting projects she has coming up this year."

The couple started dating in 2014 and have appeared in a number of Celebrity Gogglebox series, much to the delight of viewers.

They previously planned to marry, and had a podcast together called Before We Say I Do.

Denise admitted on it that the pandemic had had an impact on their relationship, saying: "We've been locked down together 24/7 and a few things have come up.

"If we try and sit down and talk about things, we'll end up bickering."

Eddie has two children from a previous relationship, while Denise is mother to daughter 10-year-old Betsy from her marriage to former Casualty and Holby City star Lee Mead.

Denise and Lee met on the 2007 talent show Any Dream Will Do, marrying in the Seychelles two years later, but split in 2013. They remain on good terms.
