Kym and Dan taking a break

IT looks like it may be over for Kym Marsh and fiance Dan Hooper.

Dan moved out of the home they shared following a series of rows last weekend.

But following a barrage of online abuse towards Kym, Dan took to Twitter to defend her and insist that they were on a break and were hoping to work things out.

He said: “Nothing’s broken off. We are having space and a break. Please leave us alone with the horrible comments.”

Kym has so far remained tight-lipped, but it has been reported that the fall-out is due to Dan’s ex of five years, Stephanie Waring, “meddling.” The pair keep in close contact because they have a daughter together, Lexi. Sources suggest that her behaviour has worn the pair down, resulting in arguments.

Steph coincidently tweeted: “Feeling a bit,,,” alongside a laughing face and a cheeky monkey, but she later insisted that it was not aimed at Kym or Dan.

Meanwhile, pals of Kym insist that the pair still love each other and they decided they needed space from each other due to how fast the relationship was going.

Steph, who stars in Hollyoaks, and Coronation Street actress Kym are to attend the British Soap Awards tonight and it has been reported that the seating has been re-arranged so they do not come face-to-face.

The break comes just weeks after the 38-year-old was gushing about her relationship in OK! magazine.

She revealed they were planning their wedding and wanted to buy their own house together.
