It was the showmance that had even the most hopeless romantics feeling a bit cynical, but now it has all come to an end.
Yes, ladies and gents, Stevi Ritchie and Chloe-Jasmine Whichello have officially split just months before their wedding.
What a sad time for all.
The two aspiring singers met when they took part on The X Factor back in 2014 and were due to get married in July, however, fans were dubious of their relationship when they took part in Celebrity Big Brother as a couple last year and appeared to not know eachother very well at all.
An official statement that was released earlier today has claimed that their split was due to “busy work schedules”, but The Mirror report that their romance had become “toxic.”
A source told the paper: “Chloe has decided to end her engagement.
"The relationship became abusive and volatile causing her to heavily relapse into alcohol abuse. She had to get out of the relationship. It became very toxic.”
A rep for Chloe stuck to the original story, confirming: “Chloe and Stevi are taking a break due to busy work schedules.”
It looks like the couple’s potential A-list wedding guests of Simon Cowell and Cheryl will have to return their hats- but we hope that both stars eventually get their happily ever after.
Anais Nin Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
