‘It’s completely over now. Sadly. We were just under each other’s feet too much. The littlest thing would spark a massive argument. I just thought to myself, ‘Where’s this going?’

‘It’s just brought me down a lot. My friends have seen it and I think she’s the same.

‘It’s sad but I don’t resent her. I hope she doesn’t resent me for anything.’
