Richard Madden has reportedly split from his girlfriend, Ellie Bamber.
The couple dated for a year and a half and split rumours were originally sparked when the 32-year-old attended the Golden Globes solo last weekend and did not mention Ellie in his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Drama Series.
According to The Sun, the Bodyguard star split from the 21-year-old, as a source claimed they were “worlds apart.”

“They’re both absolutely gutted but it was a decision made for the best. They were arguing almost daily towards the end and, despite considering couples’ therapy, it became evident there were far too many issues that could not be fixed,” the source claimed.
“Richard is the toast of Hollywood at the moment, and understandably wants to let his hair down. Ellie is a bit quieter, and wants to focus purely on her work. It felt like their day-to-day lives were increasingly becoming worlds apart.”
“They were pretty inseparable from the day they met — and their friends and family had all merged — so obviously everyone around them is gutted too. But both Ellie and Richard hope to remain friends.”
