They were an unlikely pairing, and it seems the romance between MP Lembit Opik and lingerie model Katie Green was not to be.
The Liberal Democrat, 44, revealed this week he is currently unattached, signalling an end to his four-month love affair with the 22-year-old.
Lembit announced his single status in a very public way – when Frank Skinner invited him up on stage during a stand-up show.
"Yes, I am (single) unfortunately," confirmed the Bangor-born politician, who was previously engaged to weather girl Sian Lloyd and Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia.
The couple first met at a cocktail party and went on to enjoy a series of dates.
"Lembit's very charming and witty. I can see why Gabriela found him attractive," said Katie, a former Ultimo model, at the time.
