“It’s just been bad news after bad news after bad news and I think that fact that I haven’t called him and been like, ‘Hey, wanna come around for a cuddle?’ means that it’s big for me, because ordinarily, when things get difficult, I do need to have somebody around to share those problems.”

Allen, who has two children from her marriage with Sam Cooper, added: “So the fact that I’m dealing with it all on my own, I’m growing up.”

London-born Meridian Dan is a grime artist best known for his 2016 hit German Whip.

On January 2, he wrote on Instagram that 2018 “wasn’t my best one”.

Dan added: “New friends, business partners and collaborators; Nice of you to join the team – Organic Always. Old and long standing ones… Still got love for ya and thanks for riding with me even though I’m a difficult dude to work out sometimes. To everyone else. I wish you all the best in 2019.”
