McFly star Dougie Poynter and girlfriend Maddy Elmer ended their relationship after three years.
The 34-year-old first started seeing the model again in 2018. It wasn’t until June 2019 that they were spotted kissing while hanging out in London.
However, it seems that containing the coronavirus is a difficult time for them and they decide to part ways.
A source explained: “Maddy and Dougie seem to get along well. They have a lot in common, including a fascination with unusual animals, like insects and reptiles.”
“But like so many couples, they found it very difficult to lock their lips and they decided to split last year.”
They added Sun : “It’s been a very uncomfortable time for both of you, but the decision is yours.”
Mirror has reached out to his representative for comment.

When they first met, it was revealed that the two had known each other for a while.
They grew closer and ended up together soon after.
A source said at the time: “Dougie and Maddy have known each other for a while and started working together late last year.
“He’s had some downtime over the past few months and they’ve grown close together.
“Dougie took her on vacation in late April and early May and she was introduced to James Bourne, his McBusted bandmate.”
The singer previously revealed how he’s handling McFly – which also includes Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd – hiatus in 2016.
He said he turned to valium to help worries about the band disbanding ‘disappear’.

When asked if he had difficulty remembering times when he used drugs, he said Sun : “Honestly, yes. I mean, you get flashbacks, but it’s a huge blur. It’s weird.
“It was something that was really hard to achieve, literally taking two years. Two years passed like a strange dream. The other end of the line was like, ‘What? Where’s my band? ‘”
During the chat, it was also revealed that his bandmate Harry encouraged him to go to rehab after learning that the chilling drug could kill him.
Dougie added of Harry stepping in: “It was definitely an interference. I don’t remember causing a fuss but. . . I really don’t remember much.”
