Gareth Gates has been showing off his new home after his split from Faye Brookes as she reportedly scraps plans to move to London.
The couple called off their engagement and split this week after more than six years together.
Gareth, 35, has been busy showing off pictures of his bachelor pad on Instagram .
Faye had reportedly been planning to move to London with Gareth but has now decided to stay in Manchester.
A source told The Sun Online : “Faye was supposed to be moving to London with Gareth to pursue new opportunities but has decided to stay in Manchester after their break up…
“She needs to stay where all her family and friends are.”
The pair met back in 2012 when they starred in the Legally Blonde musical together while Gareth was still married to Suzanne.
They were hit with rumours Gareth had been seen at Faye’s flat and the singer separated from his wife shortly afterwards.
Faye and Gareth later got together but they briefly split last year after six years together.
The pair got back together in September and Gareth, 35, proposed just four months later.
A source close to the couple told 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.”
