Coronation Street star Kimberly Hart-Simpson has announced her split from Celebs Go Dating boyfriend Shane after six months together.
The actress, who played Nicky Wheatley in the popular soap, informed her Instagram followers that she and Shane had decided to part ways because of "work commitments".
The 33 year old wrote in a post shared on Thursday evening: "After 6 months of dating Shane and I have decided to part ways.
"We are proud of our journey and respect each other immensely. The show has been the best experience.
"Our journey after that even better but with the distance between us, work commitments and restrictions can naturally take its toll.
"Thank you for the love you have given us, it has not been wasted. XX"
Dreamboy Shane Finlayson wooed the Welsh beauty, 33, during her time on the E4 dating show Celebs Go Dating.
They immediately moved in together in Manchester during lockdown last year.
However, Kimberley first hinted there was trouble in paradise a week ago when she revealed that she and Shane were no longer living together.
Speaking to new! she said: "We're now in a long-distance relationship and we're not going to see each other for a while because of work commitments.
"Also Covid restrictions. At the start, we moved in together, otherwise we wouldn't have had a fighting chance. But we've had all this time together and got to know each other as friends more than anything. We've really connected."
In the same interview, the star revealed that she would consider trying her luck at other reality shows, particularly I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Kimberly had said she was open to dating both men and women while on Celebs Go Dating, but it was Shane who eventually caught her eye.
Shane works as a model, and he can be found on Instagram sharing snippets of his life and modelling work with his 44,000 followers.
He also pens in his bio that he's part of the Dream Boys cast, which is a popular strip show.
