Made In Chelsea alum Tabitha Willett has announced that she and fiance Fraser Caruthers have gone their separate ways.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Tabitha explained that she and Fraser had made the decision to call off their wedding “after months of consideration and many long and thoughtful conversations.”
The couple, who share 16-month-old daughter Ottilie, got engaged in November last year and had planned to tie the knot in a swanky London venue in July before Covid threw a spanner in the works.
Sharing a snap of their hands, alongside baby Ottilie’s and the paws of their dog, Tabitha penned: “It is with a heavy heart that I wanted to share some incredibly personal news. After months of consideration and many long and thoughtful conversations, Fraser and I have decided to separate. As you can imagine, this is an incredibly hard time for us as a family.
“This year has provided so many uncertainties and forced us to postpone and eventually cancel our wedding as well as being new and full time parents and government closures of businesses.
“Ottilie is our world and remains our number one priority. We also share so much love and respect for one another and our beautiful daughter and we are eager for her to grow up watching us mature into a modern family, as close friends.
“Fraser is the most incredible father and it fills me with great sadness that we have been unable to make our relationship work. We still love each other very much and know that our future is better and more stable this way.”
She added: “As we find our feet and navigate our new relationship, we ask for respect and kindness. We may be a little quieter than usual as we settle into our new normal and we thank you in advance for your love and support.
“This is all Fraser and myself will be commenting on this matter at this delicate time.
“The community that we have formed together on this platform means the world to me and I am looking forward to sharing our ongoing journey as honestly and openly as I am able to, with you.
“With love, Tabitha, Fraser and Ottilie.”
Fraser got down on one knee late last year in Miami.
They were set to exchange vows in July in west London’s ultra-exclusive Hurlingham Club.
