Hannah and Ricky split

She's shed three stone but that's not all.

Newly-slim Hannah Waterman has now split with husband and former Walford co-star Ricky Groves after three years of marriage.

The 34-year-old actress is said to have told Ricky that their relationship was over on New Year's Day after dramatic weight loss gave her a huge confidence boost.

A spokesman for Ricky who played hapless mechanic Garry Hobbs in EastEnders confirmed the break-up.

The actor, is said to be in tears over the split.

He asked Hannah, who played Laura Beale in EastEnders, to move out of their home and, according to The Sun, has been seeking solace over a few pints at his local pub.

A source told the newspaper: "I guess he's lonely. She just confessed to him one day that it was over. It was completely out of the blue for him, he thought they were happy."

Another source said: "Hannah seems to have a new-found confidence with her new figure. She's been turning heads and she knows it. It seems Ricky no longer fits into her life. She's enjoying looking sexy and wants to enjoy life as a single woman."

A spokesman for Ricky confirmed the split but blamed work schedules, saying: "Ricky Groves and Hannah Waterman have announced today that after much consideration they have decided to formally separate.

"Both their careers have been hugely successful, but for most of last year their work has kept them apart."

The couple, who first met when they starred together in EastEnders, got engaged in 2005 and married a year later.
