Soap stars Jacqueline Jossa and Tony Discipline have reportedly ended their one and half year relationship.

20-year-old Jossa is said to have called it quits with her Walford co-star as she felt they had grown apart, but the couple have vowed to stay friends according to the Daily Star Sunday.

Discipline announced that he is leaving his role as Tyler Moon in EastEnders last month after producers decided not to renew his contract.

Jossa recently told Digital Spy that viewers will see a "completely different side" to Lauren when she returns from rehab next month.

"She's been through a lot recently, but now you're going to see a nicer and softer side to her," she said.

"I hope she can get things back on track. It does seem like it's going that way, but there are also going to be things that try to possibly get in the way of that!"
