Sarah Harding's fiance Tom Crane has confirmed the couple are "taking a break".

The DJ admitted the pair - who had been dating since 2007 and were planning huge wedding Celebration for next year - have made the decision to call time on their relationship for The Immediate future.

Writing on his twitter page, Tom said: "Sarah and I have decided to take a break. I have nothing else to say. (sic)"

Sarah and Tom have reportedly been "fighting like cat and dog" over the summer, with the Girls Aloud singer left in the UK at the couple's home in Buckinghamshire, South East England, and Tom DJing in Ibiza.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Sarah and Tom had a huge bust-up and told each other the wedding is off. Although they've always managed to patch things up in the past, it's worse than anything they've gone through before.

"They've been fighting like cat and dog. Their relationship has been strained because he's been in Ibiza for the summer and Sarah was working in Britain.

"If they do get married, they both need to start living their lives differently - and that's not going to happen any time soon. It's a shame as they do really love each other but pals can't see how there can be a way back from this."
