In response to claims, Celebrity Big Brother star Andrew shared a lengthy statement about the split on Twitter last week – claiming he was ‘not perfect’. 

He penned: ‘I would like to issue a statement as I believe stories, half truths and lies have been circulated in the media by various parties and are to a large extent inaccurate. This was at times before and during my relationship with Caroline.

‘But I do not believe Caroline was party to this. One ex-girlfriend and another girl have chosen to go to the press to divulge stories that were embellished. For the record I saw one for a few dates and one for a number of weeks.

‘Lack of trust was a major factor in my decision to end these short relationships. We were deeply in love, as proven by the level of commitment from the early stage of our relationship.’

Caroline went on to touch upon the breakup to Fabulous magazine – revealing the pain was ‘still raw’, but that she has come to terms with the heartbreak.

She said: ‘Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s life. I don’t fear being single at all. 

‘When I was younger I did because people tell you that you have to have done this and that by a certain time – you should have kids by this time and you should be married – and we’re kind of taught that by books and fairy tales.’

The former X Factor host added that love comes all in shapes and forms, stating: ‘As I’ve got older I’ve definitely learned that some of my happiest times have been when I’ve been on my own.’
