Blue heart-throb Duncan James has split from long-term lover ANYA LAHIRI after a stormy on/off three-year relationship.

Only last week (ends25JUN04) the ALL RISE singer admitted he'd fought with jealous Lahiri, who accused him of "shagging" Britney Spears, when James went to see the American star in concert in London earlier this summer (MAY04).

According to British newspaper DAILY MIRROR, James and Lahiri had a huge argument on Tuesday night (29JUN04) and decided to call time on their pairing.

A friend says, "It all came to a head on Tuesday and that's when they decided to split. They have crazy schedules and they were spending more and more time apart. This naturally cost a lot of friction."

The band's spokesperson says, "They are spending time apart. They're trying to assess how they both feel about each other and both hope they can work it out."
