The rumour mill went into overdrive when Gareth and Faye split, with some sources blaming Gareth’s controlling behaviour – and that fact that he wanted to manage actress Faye’s career post-Corrie – for their split.

He has denied the claims and a source told OK!: “I don’t know who is feeding the press these made up stories. I’m sure if you even asked Faye whether these stories are true, she’d say exactly the same.”

They added: “Gareth has never and would never have any interest in managing Faye’s career. He wouldn’t know where to start with managing an actress.”

It has also been claimed that the couple split after a reported fling between Faye and her then co-star Sam Robertson. It is said to have happened when she was on a break from Gareth.
