The Chron’s Richard Eden revealed that Alex and Nettie had split on Thursday, just under five months after their wedding reception in London.

“Late last year we decided to separate,” confirmed Alex on Instagram, who proposed to Nettie, 35, in 2018 after a “whirlwind, year-long romance.”

In the post, Alex explained: “We are rooting in the best possible way for two people who have shared incredible experiences, filled with love and laughter and as many happy memories as two people can make during this time.

“We remain best friends even though we’ve decided to go our separate ways. Our friends and family have been very supportive during this time and we appreciate all the help we have received.’

The Yorkshireman added: “Of course, leaving a relationship is never easy, but we move forward knowing we can count on each other.

“It is as amicable a separation as can be and of course we will continue to raise our Whippet Simon together.”

Nettie, who used to date Poldark heartthrob Aidan Turner and was linked to Twilight star Robert Pattinson, is comforted by male model Owen McGinnity, who was pictured with his arm around her at a party two months after their wedding reception.

She had exchanged vows with Zane during the pandemic, but they were forced to limit the number of wedding guests due to Covid restrictions, as was the big celebration last August.

Zane previously said the celebration, which took place in July, was the wedding they “always planned” but couldn’t go through due to restrictions during the pandemic.

The TV star’s brother officiated at the ceremony, while the wedding party enjoyed a carrot and maple cake and a speech from his mother.

After proposing to Nettie, a source reportedly said: “Alex has been knocked on since he met Nettie at six.

“He has a huge crush on him and soon realized he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.”

Alex has previously been romantically linked to a number of stars including Emma Willis, Sarah Harding, Pixie Geldof and Sadie Frost.

The presenter was linked to Pixie in 2008, with the Mail reporting as he “smooched” the model at an NME appearance.

Alex was also linked to actress Sadie in 2006 – but their reps shut down reports saying they were just friends, with the DJ having a relationship with Emma in 2004.

Meanwhile, Nettie and Poldark’s Aidan split in 2017 after six months of dating, with reports claiming they were “driven apart by conflicting work schedules.”

A source said at the time: “Things were going great for a while and they were getting serious – but it just wasn’t meant to be and busy schedules were driving them apart.

“They have drifted and things have cooled, but there are no hard feelings. Aidan is incredibly busy with his career and Nettie’s art really takes off so they’ve been very busy.”
