Graham Norton and his Canadian software designer boyfriend Trevor Patterson have called time on their two year relationship.
The chat show host, who set up home in East London with his former love, recently revealed to now be living alone with his labradoodle Bailey and terrier Madge.
"I have Bailey and Madge – so I’m never truly alone," he said.
"I love living alone, which sounds so miserable, doesn't it? But it is one of my greatest joys," he insisted. "I've always lived as a single man".
Graham told an Irish radio station he would never want to marry and admitted last year that he had no intention to do so with his other half.
"I would be very cautious about going down that road. At the moment, we really enjoy spending time together." he said at the time.
Asked whether he was in love now, Graham said "No, not at the moment."
