One of the couples from My Mum, Your Dad have already split after the show came to an end last week.
Natalie Russell and Paul Edwards coupled up on the new dating series and seemed to really hit it off, but the pair haven’t managed to go the distance.
According to The Sun, a spokesperson for the Channel 4 show said that despite their break up they “remain good friends.”
"Natalie and Paul enjoyed a great summer together," they said – as filming finished some months ago.
“They have since agreed it was best to part ways but remain good friends and have been overwhelmed by the support from viewers and fans alike."
A source also told the publication that though the pair had great chemistry while in the reality TV bubble, their relationship became “too tricky” to balance in the real world.
“Natalie and Paul’s flame burned bright for a few months but balancing life on the outside with nurturing their fledgling relationship proved too tricky.
The show, which is hosted by Davina McCall, sees single parents nominated by their grown-up children to go on and try to find love again.
However, it seems that both Natalie and Paul acknowledged that being in the “bubble” was different to being together in ordinary circumstances.
Fourty four year old Natalie explained: “I know reality is coming and I’m not disillusioned to that, but I do think there is so much potential there. It’s been an incredible experience.”
Paul, 47, said: “It is a bubble in here. But I think we’re both really excited to see where it’s going to go. The outside world is completely different but I think going forwards I can’t see anything other than really good things."
Following the announcement of their split, Natalie took to her Instagram to provide fans with a statement.
Sharing pictures of herself, both alone and with Paul, she wrote: “Hey everyone
"Firstly just wanted to say thank you for the overwhelming support from everyone who has watched the show and how invested you have been with our journey. It was an incredible experience and one that we will be forever grateful for taking part in.”
She continued by calling her My Mum, Your Dad experience “incredible” but confirmed that they have split but “wish each other the best.”
"Paul and I had an incredible experience in the retreat and loved every moment, we continued that connection over the summer and had some great times together. Unfortunately in early August we decided to call a day on the relationship. We are both still friends and wish each other the best. I also made some incredible friendships that I’m so grateful for. Thank you for your continued support and we’re very thankful to@davinamccall @itv @mymumyourdadukfor all we gained from the experience."
