'I'm just trying to figure out what I want in a relationship': Daisy Lowe addresses the difficulties of dating in the public eye... after abrupt split with Bradley 'Frankie' Wade

She confirmed she had split from boyfriend Bradley 'Frankie' Wade on Friday, having declared her love for him on television only hours before.

And Daisy Lowe has now revealed that she finds it incredibly difficult to date, due to her life in the spotlight.

The model, 27, admitted that growing up in the public eye has always put a strain on her romantic relationships to Hello! magazine - just days after her sudden break-up from male model Frankie last week.

Not only is Daisy a successful model, she is also daughter of famous parents Pearl Lowe, a fellow model, and rocker Gavin Rossdale, which makes going on dates privately far more tricky.

Addressing the difficulties of getting used to a relationship or breakup in the limelight, the Strictly hopeful explained: 'I'm just a 27-year-old lady trying to figure out what I do and don't want in a relationship so that I don't make the same mistakes again.

'For anyone who isn't in the public eye, that would seem normal, but because I get photographed going on one date with someone, then suddenly he is my boyfriend!'

Daisy has enjoyed a string of high-profile romances in the past - including a brief fling with singer Darius Campbell and an 18-month relationship with Matt Smith of Dr Who, before they split amid reports of his hesitance to commit.

She also embarked on a fleeting romance with Thomas Cohen, the widower of her best friend Peaches Geldof whom he shares two children with.

However, Daisy's claims come just days after she split from most recent boyfriend Bradley 'Frankie' Wade - who she had been dating since August.

'Daisy and Frankie have had a discussion and decided to call it a day due to their mutually busy schedules,' a spokesperson for Daisy told MailOnline. 

A friend of the British beauty told The Sun: 'They could not find time to spend together because he is busy with shoots as a successful fashion model.

'They had a discussion and decided they were better off as friends.' 

Their split may come as a shock however, as Daisy was proclaiming how well things were going earlier that morning.

Talking on ITV's Lorraine, Daisy dismissed any chance of things hotting up between her and partner Aljaz Skorjanec, due to her blossoming romance with Frankie. 

When asked about the chances of the Strictly curse occurring, she said: 'Aljaž is like my brother and I'm so in love with him and Janette as a couple.'

She further dismissed rumours further by adding coyly: 'I'm so in love with my boyfriend.'

However, the brunette continued to Hello! that now she is a bit older, she is caring much less about what is said about her and her relationships.

Better things: Daisy has certainly been fulfilling her wish to 'care less about what people think' as she has been dazzling on the Strictly Come Dancing floor in recent weeks

She explained: 'The older I get, the younger I feel. I care less about what other people think and just want to do what makes me happy. Having a good time is much more important than not, you know.'

And the model is certainly living life to the full at the moment, as one of the contestants on beloved BBC dance show Strictly Come Dancing.

Partnered with Aljaz, the star has been dazzling on the dancefloor every Saturday night in recent weeks with her effortless ballroom and sexy Latin numbers - scoring as high as 9s with the notoriously critical judges.

She gushed of the experience to the magazine: 'Strictly has been such a gift. It is so much more than I thought it was going to be.'

However Daisy also revealed that the show has actually helped her overcome some of her anxieties, too.

The model admitted she was never able to fulfill her dream of becoming a theatre actress due to a crippling case of stage fright - but that the popular TV series had helped to build up her confidence in front of crowds.

When asked if her new-found confidence has made her consider other projects aside from modeling in the future, she replied: 'Totally. I've always loved acting but never thought I could do theatre because I got the worst stage fright ever.'
