A model break-up: Lily Cole and her leading man end their romance
Newly single: Lily Cole has reportedly split from her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years
Lily Cole has split from her actor boyfriend after two and a half years, friends said last night.
The 22-year-old model separated from U.S. television star Enrique Murciano, 37, less than six weeks after they returned from a romantic Caribbean holiday.
But Miss Cole seemed to quickly put the break-up behind her as she enjoyed an evening with model David Gandy.
The pair stayed by each other’s side throughout film producer Harvey
Weinstein’s post-Bafta party at the W Hotel in the West End on Sunday.
Gandy, 30, was then seen booking a room – before disappearing with Miss Cole.
An onlooker said: ‘Lily and David looked extremely friendly and very cosy together.’
Friends last night blamed the pressures of work and the distance between Miss Cole and Murciano, who stars on the U.S. TV show Without A Trace, for the break-up.
A source said: ‘Lily and Enrique were struggling to see each other.
'They are both upset, but they are both extremely busy.
Under pressure: Lily and Enrique Murciano are said to have split due to work commitments
'Lily is focusing on
her finals (in art history at Cambridge) and is still flying around the
world for modelling assignments, while Enrique is filming (in Los
Angeles) all the time.’
A spokesman for Miss Cole last night refused to comment on the split or her friendship with Gandy.
