Gareth Gates has implied that he is "heartbroken" following his alleged split from Coronation Street actress Faye Brookes.
The 35 year old took to Instagram on Sunday, seemingly addressing the supposed split for the first time, uploading an emotional video of himself singing about a lost love.
Pop Idol finalist Gareth posted a rendition of Michael Bolton's How Am I Supposed To Live Without You to his 53,500 followers, asking "How am I supposed to live without you? And how am I supposed to carry on? When all that I've been living for is gone."
He simply captioned the video with a broken heart emoji, hinting that his choice of cover was inspired by his heavily rumoured break up from Faye, 31.
But fans of Faye were quick to comment on the emotional upload, telling Gareth to let her "be free."
One wrote: "She ain’t coming back. Leave it alone," as another commented: "Little too late. Let Faye be free to enjoy her life, she deserves happiness."
A third told the crooner: "Talk about a sympathy song you messed up get over it. Probly lost the best thing you could ever wish for but putting s**t like this online won’t help you out at all it shows how much you long to seek people’s approval and make you look the poor me kid [sic].
"Your a grown a*s man with a kid maybe you should try acting like that as this is very childish in every way. An before those who judge am not saying your not talented at all in no way shape or form but I think the way you are going about this is extremely childish in a way you need everyone’s attention to please you it is doing nothing for your career man [sic]"
Of course, the Spirit In The Sky hitmaker was also met with praise over his performance, with one writing: "Awwww absolutely beautiful as always you’ll find happiness one day with someone you deserve and who deserves you. May not feel like it right now but things just weren’t meant to be [sic]"
A second added: "Wow it makes me really mad to see what people are writing here. I guess none of you have been with Gareth and his ex to be able to say something you think you're right about!
"None of you are allowed to judge him anyways and he can post whatever the hell he wants to bc it is his account,and if you don't like it, unfollow him/ignore it!! [sic]
"Some of you really don't have anything else to do than to judge someone you don't know anything about!you should all take a look at your own life. Live and let live! [sic]"
Gareth's emotional upload comes just days after Faye took to her own social media to address the alleged split for the first time — despite neither parties yet confirming they have split.
She wrote to her 81,000 Twitter followers: "It's been a really weird week… I've been throwing myself into the gym pretty much everyday, anyone who knows me, knows how much I love training and keeping fit!
"It's great for your physical and mental health. I'm a member of several gyms in Manchester including the fab Barry's Bootcamp.
"So (yesterday) there was a pap outside the gym when I got there, taking pictures of me & getting very excited with his camera because I walked in with one of the trainers from the gym – who is a friend – I imagine that suggestions could be made from these pics that there is more to this."
She pleaded with her fans: "There isn't. Just let a girl be please."
Reports of Faye and Gareth's split starting circulating earlier this month, with a source telling Manchester Evening News: "Faye and Gareth are both extremely sad about their relationship ending.
"They still care very much about each other and want to remain friends, but the wedding has been called off. Her family and close friends have been supporting her through the split.
"Although it's a painful time she's trying to keep busy with various projects and auditions. They tried to make it work but sadly it's not meant to be."
