The ‘Coronation Street’ actress Brooke Vincent has called time on her four-year relationship with her footballer beau Josh McEachran after their busy work schedules put a strain on their romance. A source explained to The Sun newspaper: ”They tried to give it a good go but they’ve simply grown apart. He’s down in London and Brooke is up in Manchester. The long-distance thing works for some people but not for them.” However, it seems the Brentford midfielder, 22, is struggling to cope with the split and has been bombarding the 23-year-old star will text messages since going separate ways.
The insider added: ”Josh has been texting Brooke Vincent since the split but she’s determined this is now the end and has told pals there’s no going back.” However, despite Brooke’s decision to turn her back on their relationship, the pair are determined to remain friends. The source said: ”There’s no bad blood between them. They’ve been together since they were teenagers and have vowed to remain friends.” The former couple first began dating in May 2011 but they’ve had somewhat of a turbulent relationship over the years as they briefly split in 2014 when Josh had a loan spell with Dutch team Vitesse Arnhem, and then again last summer.
