Laura Anderson and Gary Lucy call it quits

Following their romance, the showbiz couple announced that they were expecting a bundle of joy last week – but news that the two had called it quits emerged shortly after.

Gary, who played Luke Morgan on the Channel 4 soap, spoke to The Sun and confirmed he and Laura are no longer together, with a source claiming Laura dumped him.

In a recent interview, he went on to claim the two had ended things because Laura wanted him to move to Scotland to bring up their child.

But the 41-year-old said he wanted to stay in Essex to be with his four children.

And now, Laura has set the record straight – revealing the real reason they ended things.

Laura breaks silence on Gary’s ‘lies’

Taking to her Instagram on Wednesday (February 22) Laura told her 1.5 million followers: “I had no intention to comment on the breakdown of my relationship with Gary.

“However, due to what has now been publicly shared by other parties, I have been left with no other choice.”

The Scottish star went on: “Gary and I are no longer together due to multiple reasons which will remain private. Our plan was for me to move to Essex to start our family which I was more than happy to do.

“However, since the breakdown of our relationship I have remained at home in Scotland. My priority is bringing my baby up in a calm and stable environment.”

She added: “I never asked or expected Gary to move to Scotland. I fully support him living in Essex to be close to his four amazing children.

“I am fully focused on having a healthy, happy pregnancy and remain excited to share this incredible journey with you all. Thank you so much for your support! Laura, Buddy & Bump.”
