Daisy Lowe has reportedly split from her boyfriend just a day after she rubbished Strictly Come Dancing's 'curse'.

Rumours of Strictly's so-called 'curse' appear every year now, with the BBC One series accused of breaking up relationships.

Daisy is dancing with Aljaž Skorjanec on this year's show and appeared on TV just yesterday to say she was "so in love" with her boyfriend.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, Daisy enthused: "Aljaž is like my brother and I'm so in love with him and Janette as a couple."

She added: "I’m so in love with my boyfriend."

However The Sun newspaper says that the couple had in fact split up the day before the interview.

The tabloid claims that Daisy's training schedule, as well her boyfriend's own work commitments, put pressure on their relationship.

A source 'close to Daisy' told the tabloid: “They could not find time to spend together because he is busy with shoots as a successful fashion model.

"They had a discussion and decided they were better off as friends.”

Update: A spokesperson for Daisy has since confirmed: "Daisy and Frankie have had a discussion and decided to call it a day due to their mutually busy schedules."

There is no suggestion that Aljaz is involved in the split, which is sure to rock Daisy after two consecutive weeks in the dance off.

Tonight Daisy and Aljaz will be dancing the Viennese Waltz to ‘Daisy Bell’ by Harry Dacre.

"It conjures up imagery of all these beautiful balls in Vienna and women dressed like princesses," Daisy said in rehearsals during the week.

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 airs Saturday night at 6:55PM on BBC One.
