According to an early post by The Sun, Frankie has ‘dumped’ Dougie because he liked ‘mucking about with his mates’ and Frankie ‘preferred going to West End Clubs’. It’s not got any sources to back this up on, so we’ll keep an eye out on the girls’ Twitter and so. We sure hope this is just a false rumour because there’s been far too many break ups already!
Metro.co.uk has made an article as well now, which has some ‘sources’ (friends) confirming the split. You can read it below, but I still hope it’s just a rumour as none of the girls have confirmed it, and they are usually pretty open about it!
The pair looked a picture of happiness on Friday night during Children In Need, as they cheered on their bandmates competing in a Strictly Come Dancing special.
However, Metro can reveal the segment was recorded weeks ago and Poynter has in fact been in pieces after Sandford, 21, suddenly ended their 18-month relationship last week.
A friend of the 22-year-old Party Girl singer said: ‘Dougie is devastated. He didn’t see it coming at all and still doesn’t know why. They were planning to settle down and were actually house hunting. It’s the second time Frankie has done this after she dumped him in February but came back in tears and said she made a mistake.’
Another friend of Poynter said: ‘Frankie always seems to be out partying, playing the celeb scene. The McFly lads don’t really do that.’
Meanwhile, a friend of Sandford confirmed the romance was well and truly over. ‘Frankie felt they had gone as far as they could. They split earlier this year but got back together to make things work but sadly it didn’t. Frankie has moved out of the place they shared.’
It’s the second bout of heartache in weeks for The Saturdays after Rochelle Wiseman, 21, moved out of the house she shared with 25-year-old JLS singer Marvin Humes.
