"Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie," she wrote. "It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple. I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship.

"I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made. We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time, especially for our children [red heart emoji]."

Her comment section was switched off.

In a statement obtained by The Mirror, the singer-cum-TV-star's rep shared: "Denise is understandably upset about the news, but she remains optimistic for the future. Her priority is looking after her daughter and continuing to work on the many exciting projects she has coming up this year."

It was only last April that she was discussing her and Boxshall's planned wedding, saying: "There is no proposal. We're doing it the modern way. We're in our forties, I've been married before.

"For a lot of women the dream is the big rock on the finger. I'm the opposite of that. I just want the commitment between two people.

"I don't need to wear a diamond ring to feel that someone loves me. I said to him we'll get bands when we marry. It won't be a massive, lavish wedding," van Outen explained.
