Coronation Street’s Kimberly Hart-Simpson reveals she’s split from Celebs Go Dating boyfriend Shane after six months
CORONATION Street's Kimberly Hart-Simpson revealed she's split from her Celebs Go Dating boyfriend Shane after six months together.
The Nicky Wheatley actress, 34, told fans that distance and current restrictions prevented them from taking their relationship further.
Sharing a post on her Instagram Story, Kimberly told fans on Friday: "After 6 months of dating Shane and I have decided to part ways.
"We are proud of our journey and respect each other immensely. The show has been the best experience.
"Our journey after that even better but with the distance between us, work commitments and restrictions can naturally take its toll.
"Thank you for the love you have given us, it has not been wasted. XX"
The soap star fell head over heels for ex tripper Shane Finlayson in the most recent Celebs Go Dating.
And last month she admitted to having moved in with him.
Speaking on Fubar Radio, she said: "We have been thrusted together. Because of lockdown, we've had to stay in the same home together. Because either that, or we have no chance, like what, what chance have these relationships got when they are distanced right now and everything's stacked against them?
"And we made a bold, strong choice to watch the entire series together and continue living. Yeah, he had to watch me dating with other people. That wasn't awkward at all. I was like, ‘Hahaha, I didn't really think they were fit’. They were."
The pair went Instagram official after the actress shared a picture of them together on her feed in February.
Kimberly wrote: "Hey Insta. Meet the fella."
The 34-year-old looked stunning in the picture, wearing a flowing red dress as they sat on a set of stairs.
Resting her arm on Shane's knee, her new man – dressed in a slick blue suit – looked down lovingly at her.
In the final episode, viewers were moved to tears when 32-year-old Dreamboy Shane admitted he was in love with the actress.
With tears in his eyes, Shane told Kimberly: "I've been wanting to say something for the last few days.
"I've literally fallen in love with you and I want to be with."
Kimberly reciprocated the feelings, telling her partner that nothing could "justify how she feels" about him.
"For every single second and minute passing, I'm developing more and more feelings for you," she tearfully replied.
"I just want you to know that I'm going to encourage you, stand by you. We've got each other now. I want to be with you."
