Jenkins: Gethin broke up with me

Katherine Jenkins has revealed it was Gethin Jones who broke off their engagement.

The Welsh opera singer and the TV presenter dated for four years until splitting in 2011. Now Katherine, who married US director Andrew Levitas this year, has admitted it was Gethin who dumped her.

According to reports, she opened up in a new BBC documentary, explaining: "At the end of 2011 when Gethin and I broke up, the reality of it was that about two weeks later I had to go on a UK tour where every night I'm singing songs of heartbreak and every day just trying to find the energy to cope let alone going on stage and understand his reason for doing it.

"Meanwhile everybody else is under the impression it was my decision, my ambition, I wanted to take over the world. It was so far from the truth."

Mezzo-soprano Katherine married Andrew at Hampton Court Palace in September.
