MODEL Vogue Williams and singer Brian McFadden have announced they will be "going their separate ways" after almost three years of marriage.

The pair wed in a lavish Italian ceremony in 2012 following a whirlwind romance.

The couple today announced their split in almost-identical statements on Twitter, saying: "It is with sadness that Brian and I have made the tough decision to go our separate ways.

"We will always care greatly about each other, remain friends and we wish each other all the very best for the future.

"We have nothing else to say on the subject and we would like to thank our friends and family for their support during this difficult period."

Vogue and Brian, dubbed 'Brogue', divided their time between Dublin and London, and announced they purchased a new home in her native Howth just two weeks ago.

"I've literally just got the keys and we're very excited," she wrote in her Sunday World column.

"We needed a base here, so it's a big day."

The blonde beauty spent last weekend in Ibiza where she was DJing alongside model Nadia Forde and former Miss Great Britain Amy Willerton for Lipsy London.

In April, Brian described the former Fade Street star as his "soulmate", describing their first encounter in 2011 as love at first sight.

"We instantly clicked and talked non stop for eight hours the night we met and I proposed eight months after," he said.
