Singer Charlotte Church and her fiance Gavin Henson have split up after five years as a couple.

They confirmed their separation six weeks after announcing they had recently got engaged.

At the time, Charlotte described the proposal as "awesome" and said they wanted to marry with their children as bridesmaid and page boy.

Charlotte has recently appeared on TV as a judge on Andrew Lloyd Webber's talent show Over the Rainbow.

A spokeswoman confirmed the couple had split up, but didn't go into why.
