“He openly admitted that he had really fallen for her. She was his first proper girlfriend and, although he’d dated other people in the past, it was the first time he’d fallen in love.”

He added: “The break-up hit him really hard and he was down for a few months. He was very open about how he was feeling, telling me he was struggling with his emotions and we spoke about it on numerous occasions.”

“He was quieter than usual and I suggested he needed to see someone to get some help. While he didn’t confide in me about counselling, he had obviously spoken to Montana [Brown] as she later revealed he’d gone to therapy.”

The couple had dated from January last year before splitting in late July, with Megan putting the breakup down to being “two different people”.

She told OK! magazine: “I can’t even say why we split. I just feel like we’re both at different points in our lives. We both respect each other and we didn’t want it to get nasty or messy. There is only so much you can do in a relationship and when it’s not working you’ve got to take separate routes.”
