Faye Brookes: Coronation Street star and Gareth Gates ‘call off engagement after SPLIT’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

According to Manchester News, Coronation Street actress Faye Brookes, 31, and Gareth Gates, 35, are “extremely sad” about their relationship ending.

“They still care very much about each other and want to remain friends, but the wedding has been called off,” an insider told the publication.

“Her family and close friends have been supporting her through the split.”

Express.co.uk has contacted representatives for Faye and Gareth for comment.

The source added Faye has been “trying to keep busy” with work projects following the news.

They went on to say the pair had “tried to make it work” but it wasn’t “meant to be”.

Faye or Gareth have not addressed the reported split on their social media pages as of yet.

However, the brunette beauty shared a series of screen grabs from a poem about relationships and grieving on her Instagram story.

In view of her 155,000 followers, part of the lengthy post read: “These few days might feel challenging or even disorienting – especially around your identity and relationships.

“Right now, you could feel a sense of sorrow and deep grieving.”

Another part of the quote read: “Your identities can feel like it’s slipping away and that it’s no longer relevant or important.”

The post concluded: “Can I face the fear of letting go of any superficial part of my identity?”

Faye and Gareth have been in an on-off relationship for seven years.

The singer popped the question to Faye back in January during a trip in New York.

Gushing over the moment earlier this year, Faye told OK! Magazine: “We were both crying the whole way through.

“Once it was finished, Gareth got down on one knee and said: ‘Will you spend the rest of your life with me?’ And of course I said yes straight away.”

Gareth also told the publication how he sang a song about their relationship.

He said: “It was all about the six years we’ve spent together and I incorporated bits of songs that mean a lot to us as a couple.”

“I got a bit carried away though – it went on for 17 minutes!” he added.

Faye added: “It’s every girl’s dream to find the perfect man for her and then have the perfect engagement, so I feel very lucky.”

The pair grew close when they starred alongside each other in the stage version of Legally Blonde in 2012.

Faye and Gareth split up back in September, before later getting back together, and both released a statement on Twitter.
