Matt Lapinskas and Shona McGarty have broken up.
The former 'EastEnders' cast mates have split as Matt grew close to his 'Dancing On Ice' partner Brianne Delcourt, according to reports.
The pair were together on the celebrity figure skating show and Shona, 32, became jealous of how much time they were spending together, eventually making the decision to end their relationship while they can still be friends.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "It was [her] decision to end it, they've been arguing for weeks.
"She's been feeling fed-up for a while and decided enough was enough. It wasn't working and they were not making each other happy. It's all amicable.
"She told Matt last week it was over and she wanted to end it before things got too bad between them. They can remain friends and she can concentrate on her acting."
The split came on Thursday night (28.02.13) and Shona revealed her heartbreak on Twitter shortly before the break-up, although she later deleted the post.
The message sent to her followers featured a picture of an inspirational quote which the actress described as "beaut" (sic).
She tweeted: "This is beaut x When people walk away from you, let them go your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you & it doesn't mean they are bad people, it just means that their part in your story is over. (sic)"
