The former Geordie Shore star has announced that she and the 25-year-old reality star have decided to call time on their romance after their relationship “broke down”, but Charlotte has insisted she will try her best to remain friends with the Love Island hunk and be “civil”.
In a statement posted on her Instagram Story, she wrote:
‘Me and Josh have decided to part ways.
‘Sadly the relationship seems to have broken drown.
‘Hoping we can still remain civil and wish him the best for the future’.
Joshua is yet to comment publicly on their break-up, but was out partying into the early hours at BLVD Manchester on Sunday night (17.11.19).
The pair – who lived together at Joshua’s lavish Bolton home – had been through their ups and downs, and they recently appeared on Channel 4’s Celebs Go Dating together to receive some couple’s counselling.
Charlotte said at the time:
‘When we do argue, it’s quite vicious. It can get really escalated. Like, I don’t think we really know how to deal with an argument and how to really come to a good resolution.
‘I think [Anna Williamson] and [Paul Brunson] could really help us with patience.
‘They could teach us not to snap at each other, coping mechanisms, how to deal with our problems. Maybe by communication instead of just shouting’.
The 29-year-old beauty burst into tears as she admitted she was struggling living so far away from her family and that she didn’t feel her then-beau understood how she was feeling.
She told Anna on the dating programme:
‘It’s a big deal and sometimes I don’t think he (Josh) recognises how much a big deal it is.
‘I am moving away from everyone I love’.
Quizzed on why she made the move from Newcastle, Charlotte told the dating guru:
‘I want to be with him and I feel excited about starting afresh’.
As well as their joint appearance on Celebs Go Dating, the former couple also appeared on Just Tattoo Of Us and competed on Celebrity Coach Trip.
