The ‘Coronation Street’ actress, who is best known for playing Sophie Webster in the ITV soap, is thought to have broken up with her long-time boyfriend last week, due to the long-distance turn their relationship has recently taken.

According to The Sun, Josh’s current stint as a loan player for the Dutch football team Vitesse Arnhem “drove a wedge” between them, and eventually led to their break-up.

A source tells the newspaper: “Brooke and Josh still have feelings for each other, but their long-distance relationship has just been too hard.

“The split is for good.”

The Sunday People claim that Brooke is getting through the split with the help of her friends, with a source saying: “It’s a difficult time for her because he was her first love. But she’s a positive ­person and she’s got many good friends, so she’ll be fine.”

Meanwhile, it’s thought that Brooke’s soap character is also about to find herself newly-single, following the announcement that actress Amy Kelly - who plays Sophie’s girlfriend, Maddie - is about to bid farewell to the cobbles.

Amy said, after the news broke of her soap exit: “I made the decision to leave because I'm young and adventurous and I want to gain more experience and explore and improve my craft. Acting is my passion and I'm excited to see where it takes me.”
