Beth Tweddle Allegedly Dumps Boyfriend, Steve Cryer, By Text Message

Beth Tweddle has split from her boyfriend of three years, and apparently chose to end the romance by text message.

Beth first began dating Steve Cryer in 2010 after she asked him out on a date, but now it seems like she wants to focus all of her attention of Dancing on Ice and has no time for romance.

Speaking to The Sun, Steve explained he has been left heartbroken by the split, which he says came completely out of the blue.

Tweddle and Cryer have been dating for three years

He has travelled to London from his home in Liverpool every week to watch Beth perform on the skating show and was left stunned when he received a text message saying "It's over".

He told the newspaper: "After I got the text I rang her and she just said it again, 'It's over'. I got upset and said I loved her and wanted to be with her, but she just replied, 'Sorry'."

Steve added that Beth refused to meet up with him to discuss the split, but said there was no one else involved and she just wanted to concentrate on her skating. But Steve thinks she could be in for a shock when the show is over as she has still to come down from her bronze medal success at the Olympics.

He added: "I think fame has gone to Beth's head. But when the show ends and the bubble bursts, she'll come down to Earth with a bang."

A representative for Beth denied that she had split from Steve by sending him a text.
