Max opens up about tough break-up

Max George has revealed that he’s penned an emotional song about Michelle Keegan on The Wanted‘s new album.

The singer got engaged to Coronation Street star Michelle, 26, in April 2011 just months into their relationship but they split a year later after pictures of Max kissing a mystery blonde in a Newcastle club emerged.

Now Max has spoken of his sadness about the break-up in a tune written for his ex on the band’s new record Word Of Mouth.

We’ve written about tough experiences we’ve had in our lives over the years – relationship breakdowns and that sort of thing,’ Max, 25, tells the Mirror.

I’ve written about my break-up with Michelle. I’ve written a couple of songs about it and the experiences I went through.

There’s one song called Heartbreak Story, which is definitely close to me.’

The lyrics to the sorrowful track include: Just say you’ll let me in your heart/ I should’ve been there from the start.

I promise you as long as you’re with me, there’ll never be a heartbreak story/Girl there is no need to hide away what’s done is done now.

He gave you up and then he let you down and all the trust is broken now, he can’t remember how it used to be, it doesn’t have to be a heartbreak story.’

Both Max and Michelle have since found love again – Max is dating Danish model Nina Agdal, 21, while Michelle recently got engaged to ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright, 26.
