Katherine Jenkins And Gethin Jones Split: Singer Calls Off Engagement

Singer Katherine Jenkins has announced she has split from Gethin Jones after a four year relationship.

The Welsh mezzo-soprano took to her Twitter account today to deliver the sad news.

TV presenter Jones also Tweeted confirmation the 10-month engagement was over.

The couple became engaged in February after Jones proposed to Jenkins with a £10,000 ring, MailOnline reported.

In November Jenkins told Good House Keeping Magazine she had not yet set a date for the wedding, but that she and Jones wanted "something family-based and small, rather than big and showy."

She added: "We are private in what we do; we don't go out with each other because we want publicity. We're together because we want to be. It's hard trying to get people to understand that."
