Chantelle Connelly announced that she and boyfriend Lee Blackburn have parted ways on her Instagram account.

The 29 year old former Geordie Shore star announced that she is now single as she shared a video of herself after a hardcore gym workout.

As she sat on a couch, Chantelle panned the camera down to her impressively toned stomach and said: “So the gym has been absolutely smashed, the abs are coming on nicely.

She then added: "Chantelle is back, single and back.”

The mum-of-one also shared a close-up shot of her post-baby body and toned derrière as she knelt on the ground, as she dressed in a matching camouflage print workout kit.

She captioned it: “Back in gym mode. feeling happy and positive #silglelife.” [sic]

Lee and Chantelle are reported to have met at the gym in December 2017 and enjoyed a whirlwind romance after an instant attraction.

She announced her pregnancy last year, before later revealing that they were set to welcome a baby boy.

She gushed: “My everything and more nothing comes close raising a child on your own maybe be hardest thing in the world but the most rewarding

"I love you RLB your my everything and more just me and you son mammys boy I LOVE YOU.”

Of her scary birth, Chantelle explained her blood pressure suddenly dropped after having her waters broken, putting both herself and her baby in danger.

She told The Sun: “I had been having contractions for a couple of days and throughout the night they were getting worse and worse, I couldn't handle the pain but when I went to the hospital I was only 2cm dilated and they said they couldn't give me an epidural until I was 4cm.

"I went back two hours later, crippled in agony with the pain and they decided to give me an epidural and break my waters.

"The next thing, it just went pear-shaped. My mum and partner, Lee, were like: 'Chantelle, are you okay?' – all I could remember is that I felt like I was going to sleep.”

She added: “My mum is a nurse and knows exactly what the monitor was saying, my blood pressure had dropped to around 60, my mum said I could have gone into cardiac arrest, that is what I was slipping into."

"The doctors all came running in and flushed my system to get the epidural out, I perked up a bit but then the baby's heartbeat was dead low and they needed to get him out straight away."

Chantelle revealed she was put to sleep as doctors “raced” to save her son.

She explained: "It was an emergency to get the baby out because he was deteriorating, it was just an absolute nightmare."
