Love split for Saturdays singer

The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford and McFly star Dougie Poynter have broken up.

The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford and McFly star Dougie Poynter have broken up.

The pop beauty and the bassist, who have been together for over a year, ended their relationship because of work pressures.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Frankie is so upset. She had moved in with Dougie and thought their romance was for keeps. She is heartbroken after their split because of work commitments. They are both still friends.”

Frankie, 21, has also been the focus of abuse from McFly fans on twitter after unproven rumours surfaced that she was in a relationship with legendary ladies man Calum Best – who previously dated Lindsay Lohan.

She wrote on the micro-blogging site: “I’m sorry to say but I’m taking a break from twitter for a while. The abuse following untrue stories is just too much to take. Xxx (sic)”

Last month, Frankie hinted things were not well in their relationship when she revealed she was not spending Valentine’s Day with 22-year-old Dougie.

She said: “I think if your boyfriend is only romantic one day a year… well that’s not very good is it?”
