There was rumours that Gareth’s relationship with ex Suzanne was causing problems between them, with Faye feeling that she was “bottom of his list of priorities.”

“It was hard for Faye having to share Gareth with another woman,” said a different source. “Gareth travels a lot for work, and when Faye was on Corrie, they’d have hardly any time together, yet he’d be on the phone to his ex."

Faye is currently loved up with her beau, personal trainer Joe Davies and Gareth is loved up with Ibiza DJ Chloe McLennan.
