A spokesperson confirms the split

It's official. Max George from The Wanted has split up with his girlfriend Michelle Keegan.

Rumours of a break-up have been circulating ever since the pair called off their engagement earlier this year, but only recently did Corrie star Michelle claim they were still very much in love

A spokesperson for The Wanted now confirms: ''Max and Michelle are no longer together.

"They have been separated for a number of weeks, but hoped to keep this a private matter.''

Let's face it, such a high profile split could never ever be kept a private matter, could it?

The Mirror newspaper claim it wasn't Max's decision to call time on the relationship, and that it was Michelle who did the dumping.

So now we know, it's all over. We're a bit gutted cos we thought they made a pretty sweet couple, but they're both drop dead gorgeous, we can't imagine they'll stay single for too long.
