TOWIE'S Harry Derbidge splits from fiancé after two-year engagement

By Rose Hill

TOWIE star Harry Derbidge has broken up with his fiance Dean Rowland after a two-year engagement.

Dean, 30, revealed that he had decided to cancel their wedding plans just months after they put their plans on hold in May.

The couple also were forced to postpone their wedding twice due to the Covid pandemic.

He wrote in a heartbreaking post: "After 4 long amazing years, Harry and I have decided to part ways.

"It's with a really heavy heart and absolute anxiety that I'm sharing this with you all.

"It feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it's a consequence of the lives we've chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We're living in an incredible moment in time, but it's also a time where truth can easily be distorted into "alternative facts" :)

"So, I want to share the truth, so you know that it's most certainly fiction if you didn't read it here.

"Everyone on here, friends and social friends, have supported our relationship and been behind us no matter what we have been going through, be it our adoption process, giving us advice on our little 2 French bulldogs and just being a massive supporter of our business @celebritybrushes.

"After 4 long amazing years, Harry and I have decided to part ways; this is totally on good terms. Nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure taking us different paths for now.

'There are no secret nor salacious events at the root of decision- just two best friends realising it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible.

"I would trust him with anything and he still remains that important person in my life.

"No relationship is easy, and we all know this, but with my hand on my heart, I can say the last 4 years have been the most amazing memories I could have ever asked for in a human being. We have laughed, cried and drunk a lot of wine, and after all of this, I still have the utmost respect for Harry and his decisions going forward."
