Taking to her Twitter page on Friday night, the model and TV personality wrote:

Later that night, she followed this with an optimistic tweet about the future, adding:

David, meanwhile, has remained silent on social media since the news broke which - let’s face it - is pretty out of character.

The couple first revealed that they were getting married via an Instagram photo back in April, following a whirlwind 11-week romance.

Kelly did recently admit to having cold feet about tieing the knot with the hunky former ‘Gladiator’, telling The Sun earlier this month: “Sometimes I just get a bit cynical and go, ‘Oh, is this really The One?’ I don’t know.”

However, their split still appears to have come out of nowhere, with Kelly even revealing in a recent interview that she was hoping to start a family sooner rather than later.

The couple had originally been planning to get married this month, but had to postpone what she described as their ‘Big Fat Wigan Wedding’ due to David’s “work commitments”, which was later revealed to be a short-lived stint in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house.

Over the course of their relationship, David has been accused on a number of occasions of using Kelly to heighten his own celebrity status, with former ‘Big Brother’ housemate Chanelle Hayes - who he once took on a date to Pizza Hut - describing him as a “fame-hungry scrounger”.

David, on the other hand, has always maintained that this was not the case, branding the claims “ridiculous” and saying: “I mean, have you seen this lady?

“She’s smart, she’s funny, she’s kind - she’s got it all. I could understand someone saying that if I was with some 60-year-old woman, but to me, it just makes zero sense.”
