Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates split and call off wedding

 

Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates have ended their relationship and called off their wedding.

Corrie star Faye and Gareth announced their engagement in January, but the pair have now reportedly split – but have promised to stay friends.

The Manchester Evening News has spoken to a source close to the couple who said the pair realised they just weren’t meant to be together.

The source said: “Faye and Gareth are both extremely sad about their relationship ending.

“They still care very much about each other and want to remain friends, but the wedding has been called off.

“Her family and close friends have been supporting her through the split.

“Although it’s a painful time she’s trying to keep busy with various projects and auditions.

“They tried to make it work but sadly it’s not meant to be.”

Gareth, 35, popped the question at a friend’s high-rise apartment in New York with a four-carat diamond ring and a 17-minute song that he had written for Faye performed on a grand piano.

In January they chose Hotel Gotham in Manchester for their engagement bash, and they partied alongside Bhavna Limbachia, who played Faye’s on-screen fiancee Rana Habeeb in Coronation Street, Shayne Ward who played her brother Aidan Connor, Victoria Ekanoye who played Angie Appleton and Melissa Johns who plays Kate’s ex Imogen Pascoe.

Last year the couple split for two months, which Gareth later explained was down to a lot strain on their relationship because he was regularly away with work and Faye’s schedule getting busier.

Faye, 31, arrived in Weatherfield as Kate Connor, the daughter of Johnny, sister of Aidan and half-sister of Carla Connor, in October 2015, fulfilling her dream of becoming a TV actress.

In April she announced she was leaving the soap to explore ‘new opportunities’.

She tweeted: “Thanks to everyone for your amazing support, but after 4 fabulous years in Weatherfield it’s time for me to explore new opportunities, I’ve loved playing Kate Connor, but she needs a break for a little while and so with a song in my heart I’m off to pastures new. #corrie.”

The couple met in 2012 when former musical theatre star Faye played leading lady Elle Woods in Legally Blonde the Musical and Gareth played her boyfriend, Warner.

A spokeswoman for Faye declined to comment.
