When Kelly Brook was spotted at the BAFTAs on Sunday without her engagement ring reports began to circulate of a split between her and Titantic actor fiancé Billy Zane. And the spokesman for the 28-year-old British beauty confirmed on Tuesday the pair have gone their separate ways.

Kelly is said to have instrumented the separation after much soul searching and thinking over her life since her dad Ken died last November. Sources say she decided she was just too young to marry 42-year-old Billy, whom she met on the set of castaway thriller Three in 2004.

"The split is completely amicable, and the decision was made after long conversations here and in the US," reveals a source. "They remain good friends."

Billy is now expected to return to LA for good after moving out of the couple's £1 million farmhouse in Kent.
