In sad news for telly fans, it’s been confirmed that The Undateables stars Daniel Wakeford and Lily Taylor have split up and called off their wedding.
Daniel has announced that the pair, who got engaged on the Channel 4 dating show back in 2018, will no longer be getting hitched.
Fans of the show will remember that the pair hit it off after being set up on the programme. They then returned for a Christmas special, which saw Daniel get down on one knee and propose with a musical number in heartwarming scenes.
Sadly, Daniel has now posted a video on TikTok informing his 367,000 followers that the pair are no longer together.
‘It’s Daniel Wakeford here,’ he says in the clip. ‘Listen, I just want to let you all know, because me and Lily are always being romantic for the last three years, but we decided to end our relationship together.’
He added: ‘So me and Lily, we’re friends, but I’m very good to be alone.’
