Marnie Simpson has opened up about her split from Lewis Bloor. The former couple who met on Celebrity Big Brother last summer, split over Christmas.
Speaking about the break up for the first time, she told MTV: ‘It’s just so hard because we live so far away from each other. We both care about each other so much and it didn’t end on bad terms.
‘We’re still speaking every day and we’re trying to come to an agreement on what’s best to do, but it’s just so tough being in the public eye. There’s nothing else I can really say – I just don’t know.’
Marnie announced the split on new year's day tweeting: 'Shout out to all the girls starting the new year with a break up. Yeah, ditto.'
When she first came out of the Big Brother house, Marnie admitted that the relationship would be hard. She told Digital Spy: 'I think it's going to be that we struggle. Obviously we both live such separate lives so it's definitely going to be a struggle trying to make it work as good as it did in the house."
However, Marnie states that she was willing to do what she can to make it work.
"I feel just as strongly as what I did when I was in the house. We'll just have to wait and see."
