The 'Only Way is Essex' stars have been dating for over a year but have decided to call time on their relationship following a series of blazing rows.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Everyone saw them have a huge row on 'TOWIE' this month over Courtney's 'flirting', but the couple were on the rocks well before that.

"The on-screen row wasn't actually the only cause of the split, there were loads of problems in the relationship way before all this happened.

"Fans of the pair will remember they had issues long before Myles' recent outburst, so the split doesn't really come as that much of a shock to those who know them."

The 22-year-old star asked Myles to be her boyfriend at the beginning of last year on the show, but the pair first started dating in 2016 before either of them were famous.

However, their relationship hasn't been smooth sailing as just after they got together, Myles branded the brunette beauty a "psycho" because of the way she was acting.

They then had a brief split when Courtney admitted to texting her ex-boyfriend.

But, after two weeks of no contact, they decided to get back together.

Their big tiff and subsequent split comes just weeks after 'TOWIE' bosses axed a number of cast mates as part of a big shake-up to spice up the new series.

A spokesperson said recently: "There are a number of cast who have mutually agreed their time on the show has come to a natural end for now.

"We wish them well and look forward to another exciting year ahead for 'TOWIE'."
