Singer and TV talent judge Charlotte Church and her fiance Gavin Henson have broken up after five years together, it has been confirmed.
The couple’s split comes just six weeks after announcing their engagement – in April, the pair – who have two children, told OK! magazine that Henson flew Church to Cornwall by helicopter before proposing in a restaurant. At the time, Church said she was “absolutely joyous” and “really emotional”. The magazine claimed that Henson had secretly bought Church a two-carat heart-shaped diamond engagement ring while they were on holiday in Dubai in January.
A spokeswoman confirmed the couple had split up, but declined to comment further. It has been reported that Welsh rugby star Henson has flown to Spain with friends. Former child star Church, 24, recently returned to TV screens as a judge on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s talent show Over the Rainbow.
