Patsy Kensit has ended her relationship with her DJ fiance, just five months before they were due to marry.

A spokeswoman confirmed the actress, who has been married three times already, and Jeremy Healy had separated.

"We can confirm that they have split and the decision was mutual," Kensit's representative said.

The 40-year-old, who can currently be seen in Holby City after leaving Emmerdale, first met Healy as a 16-year-old during her time with 1980s band Eighth Wonder.

Sparks flew when the couple met again last year, leading to their engagement.

"Jeremy and I are very happy," Kensit said at the time. "And I know that he is a genuinely kind and lovely person."

Healy, 46, would have been Kensit's fourth husband after marriages to keyboardist Dan Donovan, Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr and Oasis' Liam Gallagher, which ended in 2000.
