I’m sad to announce that Andrew and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not to be.

It read: "Sad to announce Caroline and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not meant to be and I wish her all the best in the future."

Caroline shared a crying face emoji to Twitter just moments after Andrew posted his statement.

In a statement of her own, she told The Mirror: "I’m sad to announce that Andrew and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not to be. I wish him all the best."

She then made a reference to her job as Love Island host, saying: "At least there’s a Villa waiting for me. It’s back to the ol’ grafting."

Their split may come as a shock to fans as just this month Caroline penned a romantic letter to Andrew in the new issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

Caroline revealed how she'd tracked Andrew down on Instagram after seeing him on TV and romance blossomed from there.

Andrew appeared on The Apprentice before signing up for Celebrity Big Brother.

In the letter, she wrote: "Every other relationship I’ve had has only been about love, but with you it’s about friendship, too. It’s what I’ve been looking for.

"My life was complete before you came into it – a man doesn’t complete your life. But I wanted to make room in it for you. I look at you and I think, 'Yes, Andrew, you’re the one I’ve been waiting for.'"

She had previously spoken about how Andrew's proposal was a surprise.

She told  Daily Mail's You magazine in May: "Andrew proposed totally out of the blue and it was very low key. I had no idea he was planning on asking me to marry him!" she said.

"But I knew things felt different in the lead-up; from the very first date with Andrew I felt as though I'd known him for years. I've never had that feeling before."

The former X Factor presenter was previously forced to defend her relationship, after the couple faced accusations it was all a publicity stunt and so-called 'sources' claimed Caroline's friends were worried that Andrew could be using her to boost his profile.

Caroline responded on Twitter: "I don't like to speak up on things. But. He's my boyfriend. And he's lovely to me. He's new to this world. No one is perfect. But he (sic)."

The star added: "Give people a break .... we all [bleep] up... all of us ... people spend so much time over analysing things ... let it be."
