Irish-German star Michael Fassbender is back on the market after splitting with his Shame co-star Nicole Beharie.

Taking to her Twitter page, Beharie who played the part of Marianne in Shame, wrote: "Yes it's true Fassbender and I are no longer dating."

Fassbender can next be seen alongside Maggie Gyllenhaal and Domhnall Gleeson in the upcoming film Frank, about the life of musician/television presenter Chris Sievey and his alter ego Frank Sidebottom.

The film is set to be released later this year.
