Until now Declan Donnelly’s ex has kept her silence about her devastating break up from the Britain’s Got Talent host – but at an event this week in London, she opened up for the first time, explaining that the last couple of months have been “painful”. Aww!
Dec is said to have broken up with Georgie in April – after two years together, leaving her shocked at the decision. And until now, she has refused to talk about it. But at a pre-Wimbledon party in West London earlier in the week, she said, “At the moment, the party line is that we’re really good friends and really support each other. But it’s been tough, it’s really tough.”
The pair are said to have broken up because Dec wasn’t ready to settle down, despite Georgie claiming just a short time before how she thought “things are going brilliantly. I come from a happy home, so want marriage and kids. I want a football team worth of kids”. Still, the sad news was broken by the couple’s spokesperson two months ago, when they released a statement saying, “Nobody else was involved and they are both still good friends.”
Very sadly, it’s thought Georgie was thinking more and more about marriage and didn’t see the break up coming. She said, “It’s a really hard thing to live out a painful break-up when you’re in the public eye. It hurts but we have to be grown-up.” Oh bless her! What a sweetheart! She went on to say she didn’t know whether she would ever get back together with Dec but for now her “focus is on work”.
We have to say, we absolutely loved Dec and Georgie as a couple and we really were hoping there’d be wedding bells there. Alas another celeb marriage dream was broken, but we hope the lovely Georgie is slowly feeling better and moving on. Whatever happens though, it’s clear the pretty Sky Sports presenter still very much cares for her ex-fella. Aww!
