Superman actor Henry Cavill has split up with his international showjumper fiancee Ellen Whitaker.
They have called time on their three-year romance just as Henry is shooting to Hollywood stardom –
Superman Man Of Steel is due out next year and Henry is reportedly being earmarked for a starring role in the forthcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey movie.
Meanwhile Ellen, part of the famous Whitaker equestrian dynasty, is said to have moved to Newcastle with her best friend Jennifer.
Another of Ellen’s friends confirmed the split and said: ‘They just weren’t getting on.’
Ellen, 26, met Jersey-born Henry, 29, at the 2009 Olympia International Horse Show. She had just ended a long-term relationship but Henry wooed her and eventually won her heart.
