It’s that time of year when we look back at our most loved-up celebs, major hook-ups and splits…
Shock split of the year:
Zayn Malik & Perrie Edwards
She should’ve been having the time of her life on tour with Little Mix in August. Instead, Perrie, 22, was left nursing a broken heart as it emerged her fiancé Zayn had dumped her two weeks earlier – reportedly by text. The news came as a shock because Zayn, 22, had quit 1D in March to help ‘save their relationship’. Her bandmates provided much-needed support, but it was clear Perrie’s feelings were still raw. She referred to one of her exes as ‘a bellend’ – but denied she meant Zayn. Zayn’s stayed tight-lipped on the split, but in a recent interview he admitted: ‘I love her a lot and I always will.’ He’s since been romantically linked to model Gigi Hadid, 20. However, in another twist he’s also believed to have spent some time with Perrie recently. So what’s next for the pair?
In October, another One Direction member Liam Payne, 22, split with his long-term girlfriend Sophia Smith, 21, after two years. Adding to our list of celebrity couples that just couldn’t make it work. The news came just days after the pop group cancelled a gig in Belfast due to him falling ill.
McBusted’s Tom Fletcher
Tom, 30, couldn’t be cuter if he tried. He won our hearts by posting a video on his YouTube account with wife Giovanna, 30, and son Buzz, one, by his side to announce they were expecting a second child. During the video, Tom panned the camera down to reveal a baby scan in front of Giovanna. Aww!
Wedding of the year:
Mark Wright & Michelle Keegan
Mark and Michelle, both 28, tied the knot in May in Bury St Edmunds surrounded by celeb pals, including Corrie’s Brooke Vincent and Antony Cotton. The bash reportedly cost £1m and the couple honeymooned in the Maldives. Perfect.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s daughter is only two, but she’s already bantering with the paparazzi, recently telling them while walking with her nanny: ‘No pictures!’ And now she has a baby brother Saint too.
Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale
After 13 years of marriage and three children, Gwen, 46 and Gavin, 50, shocked us all when they called time on their relationship in August. Gwen’s since moved on with country singer and fellow The Voice US coach Blake Shelton, 39.
Channing Tatum, 35
To be honest, the competition was tough. But with his ripped torso and biceps to swoon over, it was clear Magic Mike XXL star Channing was leaps and bounds ahead of the other contenders. Well done, Chan!
