"We were texting each other ... I think there was a bit of miscommunication but I think if you don't want to be with someone then you don't want to be with someone.

"That's just it... I did a little bit of that [fishing], all I wanted from him was a bit of effort from him to come to London or Newcastle to come and see me.

"I was just like, 'Oh, I'm going to have to give up if you don't put the effort in. '

"And then he was just like, 'OK.' I was like, 'Oh really?' I was expecting him to be a bit different."
