Gareth Gates and Faye Brookes split last week and now the pair appear to be splitting their assets.
According to reports Gareth has taken back the £30,000 engagement ring he gave to the former ex Faye Brookes.
The Sun reports that the Pop Idol singer has requested for the 31 year old Coronation Street star to give him back the four carat diamond ring he gave to her when he asked her to marry him.
A source told The Sun Online: “The split has been really upsetting for both parties. “Gareth asked Faye to hand the ring over after they broke up.”
The insider claimed that Faye was “surprised” by the demand, but gave Gareth the ring back without kicking up a fuss.
The source continued: “Faye was surprised but gave it back to him without a fuss.”
Meanwhile, it seems Gareth is slowly getting used to life as a single man and has been spotted liking Instagram pictures of Belle Hassan.
Belle is dating her fellow islander Anton Danyluk, but her smouldering shot online racked up thousands of likes, included the thumbs up from Gareth.
The stunning picture shows blonde Belle, 21, perching on the edge of a bath tub, as she shows off her curves in a plunging leopard print dress with black mesh panels down the side.
The beauty seductively plays with her hair, as she rests her red mini handbag in her lap and pulls a confident pose, at a restaurant in Manchester.
She wears a face full of glamorous makeup, while she also wears her signature black choker.
Along with liking Belle’s picture, Gareth is also now following her fellow islander Maura Higgins and former show star Olivia Attwood on the photo-sharing platform.
