Danniella Westbrook has reportedly broken up with her fiancé just a few months after getting engaged.
The soap star, 48, and her mystery man said to be named David, 28, have known each other for six years while they were both living in Spain.
The couple have had a whirlwind of a romance, breaking up and getting back together in an on again, off again relationship.
Speaking about their recent break up, a source said the “pressures of prison” got to Danniella.
“Danniella and her prison boyfriend David have unfortunately decided to part ways after a really long and tough relationship,” they told The Sun.
"The pressures of him in prison and being unable to see Danniella properly meant that their relationship was extremely unstable.
"It’s been so difficult for Danniella but she’s decided to do what’s best for herself.
"She really did love him, she thought he was the one.”
Danniella’s reps went on to confirm the news of their split.
They told the publication: “We can confirm that Danniella has indeed split up with her partner, the decision hasn’t come lightly and it is a decision that she feels is best for her and her career at this moment in time.”
OK! have also contacted the actress’ reps for comment.
Danniella and David met in 2017, with her ex-beau going on to be jailed two years later.
He was said to be sentenced to over nine years behind bars, but Danniella has expressed hopes that he’d be released next year.
"I've known him for years. I met him in 2017 out in Spain and when we were both living out there and we got together out there and it was a tumultuous relationship it was on off all the time,” she told Daily Star.
"But we just stayed in touch and he went to jail early 2019 and he got 9 years 9 months. He's home next year though, he's got 11 months to go."
Prior to their split, Danniella credited her toyboy fiance for “keeping her young”.
She said: "Everyone has toyboys. I'm living the dream, they keep me young. I'm just having a good time, I'm managed by young people – my children, my friends, they keep me edgy."
“I'm like the Barbara Windsor with Scott, she had a young one. Vanessa Feltz and Ben – they all have young other halves,” Danniella added.
