The X Factor judge and Skins actor were only together for three short months, but the pressure of "incompatible work schedules" has meant their romance has come to an end.

Tulisa Contostavlos broke up with Jack O'Connell last week in Bulgaria, where the actor is filming the 300 sequel until November.

Because of these work commitments, it meant the couple were apart a lot of the time.

Jack O'Connell can't travel to the UK as his filming schedules are tight, meaning Tulisa kept having to fly over to Eastern Europe in order to spend any time with her new beau.

A source told the Mirror: "A long-distance relationship just wasn't working so the pair sat down together over dinner, and talked it through like adults. It was a fairly mutual decision and although she's really sad to split from Jack, she knows it is for the best."
