Denise Van Outen has announced she has split from her property developer boyfriend Jimmy Barba after the couple’s whirlwind 18-month romance.
The TV personality, 49, is still on good terms and the split is said to be amicable.
Denise told The Sun: “We have decided to part ways but we remain great friends and our families and children are still in touch.”
She went public with the property developer, 55, last year shortly after her split from her cheating ex Eddie Boxshall.
Denise and Jimmy still follow each other on social media and have kept loved-up snaps together on their profiles.

The former couple were initially introduced by All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis.
Speaking about their romance in September, she told the same publication: “I am in a really good relationship now. Jimmy is lovely.
“Jimmy used to dance with All Saints and Diana Ross when he was on the circuit in the Nineties.”
Denise explained that pal and Blue singer Duncan James already knew Jimmy – who had previously worked as a professional dancer.
She joked her friends had already “vetted him”.
Denise remarked: “But him getting on with my friends wasn’t really a concern this time because I was introduced to Jimmy through Shaznay [Lewis] from All Saints.”
