Oh dear.

On Wednesday, Charlie Brake announced his split from his co-star girlfriend, Ellie Brown.

The 23-year-old multi-millionaire confirmed the news of their split in a post on his Instagram Stories writing:

“Just to inform you all, Ellie and I have decided to part ways. I wish her all the best.”

 This news came as a shock to fans, as the pair appeared to be going from strength to strength, having just returned from a romantic break in Gsstad and sharing endless images looking more loved up than ever.

However, all is not as it seems – five days after returning home the pair had called it a day on their relationship.

And now, apparently, the reason for the abrupt breakup was due to Charlie cheating on Ellie during their relationship.

According to The Sun, Charlie was pretending to be at his mum’s house in Kent when he was actually out on a date with another woman. Ellie then caught him out when fans posted images of the star in Zuma, London with the mystery woman.

A source spoke to the publication saying the following:

“Charlie told Ellie he was going to spend Monday night at his mum’s house in Kent which was fine.

“But she woke up Tuesday to several messages from fans who’d seen Charlie at Zuma in Knightsbridge having a romantic dinner with another woman.

“She was told Charlie looked panicked and uncomfortable when he was approached for photos. The expectation was to see him with Ellie – not this other blonde.”

Continuing they said:

“Ellie asked Charlie where he was on Monday night and he claimed he did come back to London but went to Nandos.

“That led to them having a massive row as Ellie knew he was lying and had photographic evidence to prove it.

“In the heat of the moment Charlie ended it but then rushed to Instagram to tell everyone, and that really upset Ellie. She felt incredibly hurt and disrespected.”

Ellie has yet to comment on the split.
