Barks ‘splits from boyfriend’

Samantha Barks

Samantha Barks has reportedly split from her model boyfriend David Gandy.

The 23-year-old Les Misérables star has been dating the 34-year-old male model for five months but according to UK newspaper The Mirror the couple have already decided to end it.

“Both Samantha and David are in high demand professionally and are really busy with their careers. David’s modelling is taking him all over the world and Samantha is the same – with regular gigs in America and Australia,” a source said.

“With such packed schedules they were both finding it increasingly difficult to see each other.”

The pair were last seen together during London Fashion Week and apparently Samantha’s distracting herself from the failed long-distance romance by partying it up with her pals.

The singer was reportedly spotted out in London on Saturday night as she celebrated turning 23 with her girlfriends.

“Samantha seemed to be having fun dancing with her mates and drinking cocktails,” a fellow reveller at Mahiki nightclub said.

Spokespersons for the stars have not yet commented on the claims.

The romance appears to have been rocky from the start, however.

As The Mirror reports, David told reporters he was “single” just two months after they first stepped out as a couple in May.
