Demi Sims has broken down in tears as she opened up about her split from Francesca Farago.
The reality star started dating the Canadian model in January, before splitting earlier this month.
The former couple’s split played out on Sunday’s episode of The Only Way Is Essex, with Demi becoming tearful as she shared the breakup news with her sisters Chloe and Frankie.
The 25-year-old said: “Me and Francesca broke up. I feel literally heartbroken but it was for the best. It was the best for both of us.”
“We just weren’t getting on behind closed doors. The relationship we were having in front of everyone else was a different relationship from what we were having when no one was there.”
“The spark was gone. There was no conversation, it was like getting blood out of a stone,” Demi explained.
“I just feel so unhappy. I would’ve given her the world if she wanted it but, I don’t know, it just didn’t work. It just really hurt me.”
“I feel like every time I break up with someone, there’s no fight for me, it’s starting to wear me down.”

The news comes after Demi insisted she “dodged a bullet” by splitting from Francesca, after she posted about her ex-boyfriend.
Just days after the couple confirmed their split, Francesca posted a TikTok video about falling for her ex-boyfriend again.
The Too Hot To Handle star posted the video not long after her ex Harry Jowsey shared throwback clips of them together on TikTok.
The former couple started dating when they filmed Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle in 2019, but later split in June 2020.
Addressing the TikTok video, Demi wrote: “Thanks guys for all your messages checking in on me to make sure I’m okay after my ex GFs TikTok, (which btw we’ve only been broke up for a week and she’s already posting about falling for her ex boyfriend again).”
“But I can assure you I’m okay, after having a hard week of crying and a broken heart I’ve now realised I’ve dodged a bullet. I appreciate you all and all your support.”
In another post, she added: “Anyways, got to let people get on with it havnt you.” [sic]
“Fresh start tomorrow, il be moving forwards and leaving that part of my life in the past. Appreciate all the lovely messages, good night.”
