Ex-EastEnders costars Kara Tointon and Joe Swash have broken up after 18 months together. After keeping their romance quiet to begin with, the pair attended awards shows and walked red carpets together during their relationship.
Rumours started at the weekend that the couple had split, with reports suggesting Kara ended the relationship. She is now in Marbella. They starred in pantomime together in Bristol over Christmas. A spokesperson confirmed last night: "They have split up, but they remain friends."
