Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates reportedly split a month ago after his behaviour started ‘raising red flags’.

Now it seems that it was all called off some weeks earlier and that Faye “hadn’t been wearing her ring for some time”.
Their relationship had come unstuck in recent times and a source has told The Sun that pressures had “been building up for a while”.
Alarm bells had been ringing for Faye and she “knew something wasn’t right”.
It came as no surprise when the split became a finality, with the source saying: “In the end she called things but he knew it was coming.”
It has been reported that one of the main contributing factors to their split was Gareth’s ‘issues’ about Faye’s plans since leaving Corrie.
Gareth was allegedly “desperate to manage her and take charge of her career but she really wasn’t keen on the idea.”
It would seem that Gareth’s insistence had a huge bearing. The source revealed: “He kept pushing for it and in the end she had enough.”
This behaviour was questioned by Faye. The source said “his want to manage her started to really raise questions and red flags for her.”
There was also the small matter that Gareth “spends so much time abroad,” and that “just made it really tricky,” for the relationship.
Faye reportedly “wants to do things on her terms,” and her stock has risen after a successful stint on the ITV soap as Kate Connor.
The source revealed: “She’s auditioning a lot at the moment and it won’t be long till she’s back on our screens.”
The Mirror Online has contacted Gareth’s reps for comment.
