Now, a source has reportedly confirmed their split to the Mirror, telling the paper: “Nicola and Charlie split at the tail end of last year.

“They just kind of grew apart – they had a great run but they both felt their relationship had come to an end.”

According to the source, Nicola is happy flying solo and is concentrating on her music career.

"She’s been back out partying loads and is really enjoying making new friends and being out at showbiz parties,” the source continues.

“She’s definitely still single, and she’s not looking to settle down quite so much so soon.

"Especially now she’s back in the studio working on new material – she’s really focusing on her career right now.

“She’s really happy at the moment and they have both moved on with their lives.”
