Apprentice stars Michelle Dewberry and Syed Ahmed have put their relationship "on hold" following the loss of their unborn baby.
Michelle Dewberry and Syed Ahmed met during the making of the show
The pair met last year while battling for a £100,000-a-year job with Sir Alan Sugar in the BBC Two reality TV show.
Apprentice winner Michelle, 26, from Hull, suffered a miscarriage after being taken to hospital last month.
The baby's father Syed, 32, said: "We have got to the point where staying together is causing more problems."
He told a magazine it was almost as though they had lost something more than a baby. They had lost a part of their chemistry too.
Their relationship had just been put on hold. He still had strong feelings for Michelle, he said.
