After months of rumours about the state of their reality TV romance, Sophie Monk and Stu Laundy have officially split.
Taking to her Instagram late last night, the former Bardot singer confirmed that the duo are no longer an item.
'I don’t know how to explain this because it’s an unusual circumstance to be in,' she wrote.
'But because I entered this relationship so publicly, I know I owe an answer to Australia about my personal life.
'I went into this experience looking to settle down and start a family.
'I gave it the best shot I could and my intentions were everything I said I was looking for, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out.
'As much as I respect him [Laundy], we are just very different people.
'There were no contracts or pressure to stay together whatsoever from anyone and we remain friends.
'The positive in this whole experience is it taught me to jump out of my comfort zone in order to find real love and made me much stronger.
