Confirming the break-up, a spokesperson for Coleen said: ‘Coleen and Michael are no longer together but remain great friends and are on good terms.’
Speaking about their romance on Loose Women earlier this year, Michael said: ‘I had been on a few dates before I met her from the apps, and then she popped up and I recognised her. I didn’t think we would even match let alone that I would hear from her. I didn’t think she would respond.’
Divulging how the relationship blossomed, Michael continued: ‘We chatted for a few weeks, texts and phone calls. I assumed she would be really confident. We were generally chatting and then I picked where we met. I got there first.’
The former Nolans songstress was said to have chatted non-stop on their first date, which ticked a box for loved-up Michael, who called it a ‘great evening.’

‘She chatted non-stop, I listened for many hours and it was a great evening. It was great meeting her family, I met them in bits not all in one. It was a gradual process,’ he explained.
Meanwhile, the television personality reassured fans they didn’t need to think about the ‘M word’ yet, but did chime: ‘I was about to give up on dating then we met. We chatted for 6 hours on the first date. There was no awkward silences at all. It’s only been seven months. But it’s going lovely.’
Before going public with Michael, Coleen previously bragged that she was having ‘the best sex of her life’, gushing in an interview: ‘He’s awoken something in me. He’s awoken a tiger, which I didn’t know was there.’
Coleen also added to The Mirror that her then boyfriend – who is a divorced father of one – ‘is wonderful’ and ‘makes me feel like I am 20 again’.
