Bianca Gascoigne has understandably been left fuming after finding out that Jamie O’Hara had dumped her over the internet.
The 30-year-old glamour model insists that the former footballer hadn’t told her that their short-lived Celebrity Big Brother romance had come to an end – just days after the reality show’s final.
Just one day after claiming that he is determined to keep girlfriend Bianca in his life, Jamie confirmed that he had dumped her as he wants to focus on his three children, who he has with ex-wife Danielle Lloyd.
In a statement, Bianca told The Mirror: “I totally respect his decision, obviously children should always come first.
“[But] it would have been more respectful to hear the news from him first rather than reading about it in the newspapers.”
Speaking to The Sun earlier today, an insider had dished: “They are going to remain firm friends but Jamie needs to spend time with his family first and focus on other things in his life.
“They had a great time in the CBB house but unfortunately it has come to an end.”
The ‘split’ is no doubt unsurprising for Celebrity Big Brother fans, with many viewers insisting that their relationship was a ‘showmance’ – especially as Jamie seemingly ‘settled’ for Bianca after unsuccessfully attempting to woo housemates Jasmine Waltz and Nicola McLean.
In his exit interview with Emma Willis, Jamie had dubbed Bianca “wifey material” before telling OK! magazine just yesterday: “She definitely has that potential [to be The One].
“She’s an amazing girl. I know she has her situation to sort out on the outside and I need to respect that.
“Whatever she wants to do, I’m happy with, but she is definitely someone that I want to have in my life. She said to be that she really likes me and she wants something between us, so I’d like that as well.”
Bianca and Jamie’s relationship was all the more controversial as Bianca was already dating CJ Meeks on the outside before falling for Jamie in the Big Brother house.
It’s understood that the duo have now officially split, with Bianca slamming CJ for selling his story to evoke sympathy from the public.
