Vogue Williams and Dancing on Ice contestant Brian McFadden shocked the world when they announced their split in July 2015. A week after the news was announced, Vogue, who was 29 at the time, opened up about the break-up in her HELLO! blog. "First of all, I would like to thank everyone for their kind words and messages over the past week," the Irish model told readers. "It's been very difficult for Brian and I, but it's been really nice seeing the support off everyone."

Vogue has since married Made in Chelsea's Spencer Matthews and welcomed a baby boy Theo with him in September 2018. Brian, meanwhile, is in a relationship with Danielle Parkinson, a sports teacher from Rochdale. The couple met through mutual friends in Manchester.

Vogue and Westlife singer Brian announced their split on 7 July 2015, posting almost identical statements on their Twitter and Instagram accounts alongside broken heart emojis. "It is with sadness that Brian and I have made the tough decision to go our separate ways," Vogue wrote. "We will always care about each other, remain friends and wish each other all the very best for the future."

The pair proved they were still on good terms; two days after announcing their separation, Brian was seen picking up the pretty DJ from ITV's summer party in London. Vogue attended the annual party in Notting Hill looking stunning in a salmon pink dress teamed with pom pom heels, and after mingling with the likes of Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton, was seen jumping into a black jeep driven by the 35-year-old.

Vogue and Brian – who has two daughters, Molly, 17, and Lilly-Sue, 15, with ex-wife Kerry Katona – married in a lavish Tuscan ceremony on 2 September 2012. Their split came as a big surprise; just three months before in April, Brian described Vogue as his "soul mate" "We instantly clicked and talked non-stop for eight hours the night we met and I proposed eight months later," Brian told The Belfast Telegraph.

"Within three weeks she moved to Australia to be with me. Although it was a whirlwind romance, it was just so right from the beginning, so we knew it would work." He added: "Meeting her was a life changer for me – she's my soulmate. Getting married hasn't changed anything – it was perfect anyway – but it has made us both feel quite grown-up. We like nothing better than just staying in and spending time together as a couple when we're not working.”
