Former Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes has sparked concern among fans after posting a heartbreaking meme on her Instagram page.
The TV personality, who gave birth to her first child, Frankie, with boyfriend Ryan Oates in August, confirmed the pair had split recently after a row.
And now, she’s taken to her Instagram page to reveal that she’s still struggling with the development.
The 29-year-old shared a meme with her 77.7k followers, which read: ‘I’m trying to keep it together with a smile on my face and my head held high. But the truth is I am dying from the inside,’ adding a simple broken-hearted emoji alongside.
Fans have rushed to console the new mum after her admission, with many saying they were sending her ‘positive thoughts’ and ‘hugs’.
‘In that moment you feel like you cant go on, just look at the faces of your two precious boys,’ one advised. ‘They need you as much as you need them and together the three of You will get through this xxx’.
Another simply wrote: ‘You are strong’, while this fan queried if all was not lost: ‘You poor love, it’s such a hard time anyway with your hormones all over the place. All couples struggle with a newborn, can you mend this? You were so happy together, try and fix it if you can xx’
‘Sending love 💕 I’m so sorry you’re going through this xxx’ sympathised another.
Chanelle, who also has son Blakely from a previous relationship, revealed that the couple’s relationship was over on Twitter, telling fans she had begged him to stay.
She wrote to her 143k followers: ‘When @RyanJOates drops your child off and you basically beg him to sort your family out but he tells you his family and friends have told him he should have left me even sooner than he did!’
