Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue Williams have split up, with the DJ announcing the heartbreaking news on Twitter.
The former Westlife star and Vogue had been married for nearly three years after tying the knot in a lavish Tuscan ceremony.
Sharing the news on her Twitter page, Vogue shared a heartbreak emoji along with the post: “It is with sadness that Brian and I have made the tough decision to go our separate ways.
“We will always care greatly about each other, remain friends and wish each other all the very best for the future.” She continued: “We have nothing else to say on the subject and we would like to thank our friends and family for their support during this difficult period. Vogue x”.
In April this year, singer Brian called Vogue his “soulmate” and described how it had been “love at first sight” between the couple.
“We instantly clicked and talked non-stop for eight hours the night we met and I proposed after eight months,” he told The Belfast Telegraph.future.”
“Within three weeks she moved to Australia to be with me. Although it was a whirlwind romance, it was just so right from the beginning, so we knew it would work.”
He continued: “Meeting her was a life changer for me – she’s my soulmate.
“Getting married hasn’t changed anything – it was perfect anyway – but it has made us both feel quite grown-up. We like nothing better than just staying in and spending time together as a couple when we’re not working.
“You can be in love with someone but if you can’t be friends with them, it’s kind of pointless. We make each other laugh, especially after we’ve had a silly row about something!”
Last year, the TV presenter and model revealed how she learnt the realities of married life.
In an interview with HELLO! Online she said: “It is all about compromise. I will do most of the housework but he takes care of going to the shops, giving me lifts or picking people up.”
Vogue, who became a stepmother to Brian’s children Molly and Lily-Sue from his previous marriage to Kerry Katona, described how she had a strong bond with them but wasn’t ready for her own.
“I thought that I was going to have kids by the time that I was 30. I even had a pact with my friends that we would all get pregnant at the same time,” she said.
“Work is going so well for me at the moment that I don’t want to rush it. Maybe in a few years time.”
