Claire Sweeney has called off her engagement

Wednesday April 2, 2014

Claire Sweeney has split from her fiancé, her agent confirms.

The former Brookside actress was engaged to Daniel Riley for over a year but reportedly called off the wedding four months ago.

Revealing exclusively to HELLO! Online her engagement to Daniel, who was 14 years her junior, Claire said: "I can't believe I'm a fiancée."

The Loose Women panelist added: "The reason I've never married or had children is because I take it very seriously and I hadn't met the right person. I'm a workaholic. I've had a great life and a fabulous career.

"It would take a very special man to make me stop and want to be with them. Daniel is that person. I was thrilled when he asked me to be his wife."

The actress’s rep had no further comments.
