The couple have been dating on and off for seven years

Faye has dated former Pop Idol star Gareth, 35, on and off for seven years.

They have called off their engagement just seven months after Gareth popped the question.

He got down on one knee after they got back together following their brief split in September 2018.

A source told The Sun Online: “Gareth and Faye have been through a lot together but they just can’t make it work.

They are hoping to remain friends following their relationship breakdown
Faye hinted at starting over again today

“She’s in a different place right now after leaving Corrie and is working hard to land some new roles.

“She was really excited about the wedding and had even picked a venue but deep down she knew it wasn’t right.

“They are both really sad about it but have vowed to remain friends.”

Faye quit playing Kate Connor on Corrie earlier this year and the pair had been planning to move to London.

Corrie’s Faye met Gareth in 2012 when they played on-stage lovers in the UK tour of Legally Blonde The Musical.

Faye and Gareth’s reps both declined to comment when contacted by The Sun Online.
