Sugababe Heidi Range and fiancé Dave Berry have announced the end of their 8 year relationship. The couple, who got engaged on New Year’ Eve 2009, had been planning to marry this year.

According to the announcement made by Sugababe singer Heidi on her Twitter page, she and Berry separated several months ago, but had waited until now to break the news officially. The celebrity couple first got together in 2003 and had been planning to marry at the end of the year or in early 2012 when they unexpectedly called time on their 8-year romance.

Speaking at the time of her engagement, Heidi revealed the romantic marriage proposal took place at the London flat the couple had shared and described how Berry had surprised her with a square cut diamond engagement ring at five minutes to midnight on New Year’s Eve 2009.

While the Sugababe took to social media to break the news that her engagement to Berry had been called off, her former fiancé took another route, issuing an official statement through his management. Both the singer and the TV and radio host insist the break up was amicable and that no third party was involved in their decision to call an end to their relationship.

Their love lives may have taken a nose dive in recent times, however their careers appear to be on the up as pop singer Heidi is currently in training for her stint on Dancing on Ice which starts in January while Dave Berry is preparing to take over the hot seat from Johnny Vaughan as the breakfast show host on Capital FM weekdays from the New Year.
