Neither Jesy, 25, nor 24-year-old Jake have broken their silence on their break-up, although Jake’s band did release a single entitled I Swear She’ll Be The Death Of Me last Friday.

But Coleen opened up about the sad situation on Loose Women yesterday, explaining that the pressure of being in the spotlight was a contributing factor.

She told her fellow panellists: ‘With Jake and Jesy when they first got engaged, instantly all the press – everyone was asking me: “When’s the wedding?” There’s so much pressure on relationships.’
