They were one of the hottest couples in the industry but Mollie King and David Gandy have called time on their relationship.

The pair, who began dating in April last year, blame their hectic schedules as their reason for splitting.

Mollie, 24, has been staying at her mother's house since the break-up.

According to The People, the couple split last week as they were just 'so busy' all of the time.

'I have been over in the States three times this month and a relationship can't take that,' David told the newspaper on Tuesday.

Speaking at an Orange pre-Bafta party at The Savoy hotel in London, the 31-year-old model went on to compliment The Saturdays singer.

'Mollie is an incredibly beautiful, lovely girl and so grounded. But it just didn't work out.

'Maybe in a few years when we are at different stages in our career we can make it work.'

However, it wasn't that long ago that the Essex-born star was saying he would spend the next 40 years with the blonde and there was also talk of them moving to India late last year.

But Mollie has put on a brave face and sought comfort in the arms of her mother.
She is currently back at home and has been tweeting about the perks of being back under her parent's roof.
