But a source told The Sun that their relationship began to strain after her workload increased. Following her stint on I’m A Celeb, she signed up for Channel 4’s reality competition show Sink or Swim.

The source said: “Sair has found the challenge of learning to swim from scratch really tough.

“Training has been more difficult than she expected and it has really taken its toll on her emotionally and pushed her relationship to breaking point.”
