Although, it seems now that the Geordie romance has come to an end, with Chloe announcing the break up to her 3.1 million Instagram followers.

Sharing the message pasted onto a plain black background, the feisty telly personality penned: ‘It hurts me to say this but me and Sam have gone our separate ways. We are still friends. Things carry on as normal.’

Looking forward on a positive note, Chlo made a nod to her latest business venture, the launch of her very own beauty salon, CM House of Aesthetics.

She added: ‘Bring on Saturday for the shop opening.’

Fans of the duo were quick to express their sadness at the shock news, taking to the comment section of Chloe’s latest post.
