A source close to the model has confirmed that the mum of one and Danny have parted, and that their break had been on the cards for some weeks.

“The truth is that Irma has decided to end the relationship with Danny as they are both going in different directions.

“This split has been evident for quite a while now and has nothing to do with any third parties.”

Rumours had circulated since Irma did not appear at Saturday night’s final of The Voice in London.

Some papers had suggested that The Script singer and his protégée, Bo Bruce, the daughter of the Earl of Cardigan, had been getting increasingly closer, although Danny’s spokesperson issued a statement to say that the two are just friends.

Fans had commented on the chemistry between Danny and Bo, who is estranged from her father, on Saturday night.

The Dubliner cried on the BBC show as he paid tribute to Bo, whom he said represents anyone who has been through troubled times.

Danny had been dating Lithuanian-born Irma, since they met four years ago when Irma, then one of Ireland’s top models, appeared in the video for The Script hit single ‘Breakeven’.

Danny had previously said of Irma: "Have you seen my girlfriend? I’m absolutely a one-woman man."

Irma is said to now be concentrating on developing her acting career.

The source close to her said: “Danny is a sweet guy and Irma has nothing but good things to say about him and their time together.

“The media have been calling her all day, but she doesn’t want to talk.”
