Kym Marsh gives suppot to Faye Brookes

Share article:

Kym Marsh has given her support to Faye Brookes following her split from Gareth Gates.

The 43-year-old actress messaged her former "Coronation Street" co-star when she heard she'd ended her engagement to the pop star but she thinks it is better the pair made the "brave" decision to call off their wedding rather than end things further down the line.

Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she said: "I sent Faye a text to let her know I'm thinking of her and I said I hoped she was doing OK.

"As sad as it is, it's better to split before walking down the aisle with someone than marrying someone knowing it's not the right thing to do.

"Sometimes the bravest and best thing you can do is walk away from the relationship."

Faye and Gareth had a seven-year on/off relationship before getting engaged in January and it was recently claimed they had tried their best to "make it work" between them but ultimately decided just to be friends.

A source said last week: "Faye and Gareth are both extremely sad about their relationship ending. They still care very much about each other and want to remain friends, but the wedding has been called off. They tried to make it work but sadly it's not meant to be."

News of their split came just months after 31-year-old Faye insisted they will "never take each other for granted again".

Speaking in March this year about their last split - which saw them separate in September 2018 - Faye said: "It was for the right reasons for sure. I feel like we'll never take each other for granted ever again.

"Work took over and we ended up missing each other so much that we were missing life together.

"We are enjoying engagement but obviously I've been dreaming of this [wedding] day since I was a little girl."
