Geordie Shore star Gary Beadle has blamed “career challenges” for his split from girlfriend of one year Lillie Lexie Gregg.
The reality TV star had just recently been heard gushing about Lillie and saying she was “The One.”
A rep for Gary told The Mirror: “Gary has the ultimate respect for Lillie but the challenges of his career and associated travel are not conducive with having a relationship.”
Before anyone could jump to conclusions the rep also added: “There was no third party involved.”
Four days ago Lillie posted a picture on Instagram showing her posing with Gaz with the caption: "So tired today and really missing my @gazgshore can't wait for some chill time in December."
Gary chose to break the news by tweeting a short message to his fans and a link to the article about his break up. Which has made us feel a bit weird. He wrote:
"Single again… Want to wish Lillie all the best for the future.. Was an amazing year."
Lillie had also tweeted just several days ago that she was looking forward to the break the couple were supposed to be taking together. They apparently had plans to head to Lapland.
Gary has just flown to Australia amid massive speculation he’s going to be replacing Spencer Matthews on I’m a Celeb. His rep however has said that he is taking a trip Down Under on “non-Geordie Shore related business.”
Which is a pity, because it would have been interesting to see what Vicky Pattison and Gary got up to if they reunite in the jungle.
We also would have liked to see what Vicky had to say about the break up, and Gary’s interesting Twitter reaction.
This morning Lillie took to Twitter to confirm the news of the break up and told fans:
"Just to confirm! Gary and I have split. We had the most incredible year and relationship! There is nothing and never will be anything bad Between us! Work commitments for us both and career directions have made us being together very difficult!"
