A source said: “Lana and Ron really put everything into their romance and have tried to make things work for some time now.

“Unfortunately, they have decided to separate, which is a decision they have made amicably and of course, they still remain good friends.”

The source continued to tell MailOnline that the distance between their respective homes in Manchester and Essex contributed towards their split.

“Commuting from Manchester to Essex and back again whenever they wanted to spend time together, as well as managing their work commitments just proved too difficult,” they continued.

Ron has spoken about problems with distance between the two of them before.

Speaking exclusively to HOAR at the launch party of Ashley Banjo’s new range with Peacocks, Ron said: “It’s not forever. Every relationship at some point, it’s natural to move in together.

“It’s weird we get so many questions like ‘when are you moving in?’ and you’re like… baring in mind we’ve only been together a couple of months, one of her big goals and one of my big goals is to buy a place up there, and down here, have our own bases.

“Then when we’re ready, it could be six months, a year, two years, I don’t know, then we’ll buy together.

“I can see myself going up there, I can. I feel like leaving my friends and family would be like hard, but for her I’d do it. I don’t care. So that would be the natural profession.

“But right now, we’ve been out five/six weeks, I think we spend six or seven days apart, everyone sort of grilled me I think for when I said I want to miss her.

“When I’m not with her, it’s actually quite hard. It’s well hard.”

The two coupled up on day one, but by day five Ron recoupled with Tanyel Revan and the hunk wanted to explore their connection.

By day 10 Ron had recoupled again with bombshell Ellie Spence, leaving Lana gutted.

Meanwhile Lana was left in a pair with Aaron Waters, and later decided that she wanted to see if she could see a spark with Casey O’Gorman.

After exploring her connection with Casey, Lana decided that Ron was the man for her.

Distance has played a part in the pair’s decision to go their separate ways
