TOWIE’S Bobby Norris has confirmed that he has split from boyfriend Matt Snape after one year together.
The 34-year-old reality star revealed that the pair have decided to go their separate ways but still remain on good terms.
Taking to social media, Bobby penned: “Hey guys, I just want to acknowledge the recent speculation regarding my relationship…I can confirm that Matt and I are no longer together.
“We share some amazing memories of our time together and I truly wish him all the best…x”
Their shock split comes weeks after the pair spoke on the Essex reality show about starting a family.
Towie fans recently gushed over Bobby and Matt as they took their relationship to the next level.
The couple opened up about their relationship to Amy Childs, explaining they'd been together for one year after meeting at a salsa class.
"So when's the wedding… you look so happy together," Amy asked.
Bobby replied: "We ain't there yet, I ain't got a ring."
But after Amy left them at the socially distanced festival, Bobby turned to his boyfriend.
He thanked him for supporting him during ongoing battle with homophobic trolls.
"You're always lifting me up… not many people's partners have to put up with that s**t and I don't know if I ever sit back and thank you for it.
"But you make me feel stronger when you're here."
Matt promised he would "always be there" for Bobby.
Bobby then popped a big question: "Do you think it's time you moved down here, we've made this distance work since last year and we grab whatever time we can but it's not ideal."
Matt giggled and said: "Do you think we should make the next move? I feel giddy talking about it. Let's do it."
The men then declared their love for each other before sharing a sweet kiss.
Fans rushed to comment on Bobby’s post, with one writing: “Nooo Bobby. You guys were absolutely wonderful together. Good luck to you both.”
Another posted: “I’m so sad to read this. You are perfect together.”
A third wrote: “You’re amazing either way, keep that wonderful chin up.”
Another fan praised Bobby for being so mature about the split, they wrote: “Wow I wasn’t expecting that but well done for being so open and honest.”
Bobby has had a rocky time when it comes to finding Mr Right – he previously dated fellow co-star Harry Derbridge and MMA trainer Chris Parkes.
The Towie favourite also joined Channel 4 show Celebs Go Dating in 2017 but did not meet his soulmate on the hit show.
