Blue hunk Simon Webbe has ended his romance with model Anne Marie Mogg because he is too busy to sustain a serious relationship.

The ALL RISE star met Mogg at the London premiere of movie AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS in June (04) but separated from her yesterday (01DEC04) because he's preparing to launch his solo career when Blue take a break next year (05) and had to chose between his girlfriend and his career.

He explains, "It was hard to find time for love. I thought Anne Marie was beautiful. I met her at the Around the World in 80 Days premiere and I approached her because I thought she was lovely.

"We are still friends and we had fun together. We went out a lot but I just don't have time for it now."

"I am so busy, I just don't get time to invest in a girl. I am also very fussy, which is probably not a good thing. I have to test these girls. I can't explain what I look for but I know it when I see it."
