These two became close in 2012 and continued their romance on and off for years.

They're both singers meaning they'd often perform gigs together in their home town of West Lothian in Scotland.

MailOnline reports they were so close, they even met each other's families.

Garry auditioned for The X Factor in 2010 and returned a couple years later.

He massively impressed the judges with his rendition of Stevie Wonder's Signed Sealed Delivered.

According to MailOnline, he was one of three singers who missed out on a place in One Direction.

Paige also attempted to further her career as a singer on Britain's Got Talent.

She auditioned for the show when she was just 14 and wowed the judges with her rendition of Skinny Love.

Watch the full performance below:

A friend of the pair tells MailOnline that these two were pretty much inseparable for a time.

'They’d known one another for years and enjoyed one another’s company.'

'They were never really formal about their relationship but friends knew they were seeing one another.'

Their relationship began to deteriorate when he took off on a tour of Doha and she went travelling.

'Their relationship was one that was pretty fluid and it was thought they’d get back together once they were both on home turf but that doesn’t appear to be happening now.'

Paige explains, 'We went out when we were younger, I was about 17 or 18. We were together for about a year.'

'It ended really amicably and we’re still pals.'

And it turns out Garry is good friends with the Someone You Loved singer as well.
