Faye Brookes splits from personal trainer boyfriend Joe Davies
Faye Brookes has split from her personal trainer boyfriend Joe Davies.
The former ‘Coronation Street’ actress, 34, admitted they had “sadly” decided to break up after “wonderful” times together.
She said on Twitter on Tuesday (12.07.22): “Just wanted to say that, very sadly, after nearly three years Joe and I have decided to go our separate ways.
“We had the most wonderful of times, and our mutual respect, admiration and friendship remains stronger than ever.”
She signed off her message with a heart emoji.
It comes weeks after Brookes was spotted holidaying in Mykonos, Greece, with Davies, a personal trainer with ‘Barry’s Boot Camp’.
The couple went public in December 2019, sharing workout posts on Instagram and later a couples’ snap.
Brookes previously dated singer Gareth Gates, 38, and they were engaged before splitting in August 2019 after spending seven years dating on and off.
Gates was said to be “heartbroken” by the break up, before going on to a relationship with DJ Chloe McLennan.
It was said Brookes and Gates had a row after she began having late-night gym sessions and he confronted her about her relationship with Davies.
A source close to the singer added at the time: “Poor Gareth is absolutely heartbroken. He’s in pieces. “Towards the end of their relationship, Faye started having late night gym sessions and saying she was out with new gym pals... they had a blazing row, and Gareth confronted Faye about Joe. He felt something wasn’t right, though she insisted they were friends.”
‘Pop Idol’ runner-up Gates and Brookes, who played Kate Connor on ‘Coronation Street’, met when they appeared in ‘Legally Blonde’ in 2012, and went public with their relationship in August 2013.
Brookes is said to have isolated at Davies’ parents’ seaside home through the UK’s first Covid lockdown.
