They were the couple that defined our relationship goals but it seems Rozanna Purcell and Niall Breslin have split.

Model Roz (25) took to Instagram to tell her 146,000 followers about the end of their relationship.

She posted a pic of them together on New Year's Eve and wrote, "Myself and Niall decided to end our relationship some time ago.

"We are still friends & love each other very much.

"We won't be saying anything else about it so appreciate if you could respect that."

The couple had prompted split rumours at Christmas when they spent the holidays apart.  Roz visited Thailand while Voice of Ireland coach Bressie spent Christmas at home in Mullingar.

Roz, from Tipperary, began dating The Blizzards frontman three years ago.

Speaking to The Independent at the time, Bressie (35) said they wanted to keep their relationship private.

"It’s no one’s business really, I understand people are interested but once you start using it, it becomes something else,” he said.

“At the end of the day, the minute you start putting that stuff in the media and it blows up in your face, we don’t want to be part of that.”

Just last month Roz and Bressie welcomed rescue puppy Wilco into the home they shared together in Dublin.

She also spoke about not being ready for marriage or children.

 “I haven’t really thought about that because for me I’m still a child. I’m still crafting and learning what I want to do,” she said.

“People still ask me what my big goal in life is and I think I still have so many and I still need to shuffle through to find the one.”

“I can think about marriage because it’s not as big as having kids. When I’m around babies, I get really nervous.

“I’d have to get over my fear of that first before I can start thinking about it. I always say I have two older sisters who need to start thinking about that before me.”
