Scarlett Moffatt has been left heartbroken after her boyfriend dumped her in the most savage way possible.
The I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here winner and Googlebox hero has always had a rocky relationship with her boyfriend Luke Crodden, but now it looks like it’s well and truly over.
And the timing couldn’t have been worse – Luke decided to break up with Scarlett on her birthday!
The 27-year-old TV presenter struggled to celebrate yesterday as her 18-month relationship came to an end.
The pair first split back in February, before they rekindled their romance in June, however, it looks like this might just be it?
The star posted on her Facebook page, telling fans it was ‘Luke’s choice in the end’ as he felt they were better off being friends than a romantic-couple.
In the now deleted post, Scarlett wrote:
I’m gonna have to write it because I feel a bit awkward as I’ve done some interviews about him being in my book that aren’t out for a while due to timings of the magazines … but me and Luke have finished due to a number of different things.
It was Luke’s choice in the end but it’s because we both just see each other in more of a friendly way than a romantic way and we both respect and love each other enough to know we need to call it a day and not be one of those couples that’s off and on.
So it’s not that I’m being a crap girlfriend and not mentioning him, it’s just we are no longer together.
I wish him all the luck and happiness in the world, just sometimes these things happen (Happy Birthday Scarlett by the way ha).
Before their first split in February, the couple were rock solid, with Luke frequently featuring on her social media accounts as Scarlett posted cute couple photos.
He also supported her as she entered the jungle for I’m A Celebrity, seemingly very proud when she was crowned Queen of the Jungle in December.
But as her fame rose following her big win, Scarlett’s hectic career clearly had an impact on their relationship leading to it being on the rocks.

This year Scarlett is returning to the jungle once again, but this time, she won’t be a contestant.
She’ll be on the other side of the campsite as the brand new presenter of the spin-off show, I’m A Celebrity… Extra Camp.
Scarlett is replacing former presenters Stacey Solomon, Chris Ramsey and Vicky Pattinson on ITV2‘s popular show.
Joe Swash will be returning to the show to present alongside Scarlett, along with former contestant, the comedian Joel Dommett – in his first ever presenting role.
Joel said to ITV:
I’m unbelievably excited to be going back into the Jungle for Extra Camp.
Ever since I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here got me out of there, I’ve been wanting desperately to get back in there.
I can’t blooming wait!
Although no air date has been confirmed, the hit show is likely to return later this year.
