HOLLYOAKS actress Nikki Sanderson has split from her boyfriend during lockdown — and he has since joined dating app Bumble.
Just three months ago, Nikki, 36, had boasted about how much she and Greg Whitehurst were enjoying living together in the restrictions.
But Nikki told The Sun tonight: “Sadly Greg and I have decided to separate. We remain friends and wish the best for each other in the future.”
Nikki, who plays Maxine Minniver in the C4 soap, began dating Greg in 2015 — just ten months after he got married. She had attended the wedding.
But his marriage quickly failed.
In April Nikki told The Sun on Sunday she was enjoying being with Greg in lockdown insisting they were “happier than ever”.
Nikki — Candice Stowe in Corrie until 2005 — said: “Greg and I are lucky because we live in the countryside so there aren’t many people about.
“We’ve been doing workouts together in the back garden. We’re happier than ever. We drive each other bonkers but in the best way. We’re happy.
“People always ask, ‘Are you going to have babies? When are you going to get married?’
“Obviously we’d like all that one day but we’re just happy doing us right now.”
