Just two months after their romance was revealed to the world, Dr Chris Brown and Liv Phyland seem to have hit a rough patch.

In fact, with the 40-year-old TV vet away in South Africa filming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Woman’s Day hears the couple have pressed pause on their relationship while the distance keeps them apart.

An insider revealed that the couple, who struck up a romance in the latter part of 2018, are already calling it quits.

“It’s just too tricky. Liv’s also back at work herself [filming The Loop], and doesn’t seem to have any plans to go over to South Africa,” the insider revealed.

Liv is clearly feeling a little philosophical about the circumstances, sharing a telling Instagram post with her 46,000 followers.

The recent post included a quote from CS Lewis: “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”

However, it seems Liv isn’t letting the apparent split get her down.

The bubbly blonde, 28, has been partying up a storm with her closet girlfriends and a group of mates, which includes ex Bachelorette star Luke McLeod.

She was also spied “looking flirty” with another man while spending time at Tamarama Beach in Sydney recently.

Meanwhile, if Chris and Liv do decide to call it quits for good when he returns from overseas, it seems he has his own Bachelorette star waiting for him.

Brittany Hockley, who failed to woo the Honey Badger, has been flirting up a storm on Chris’ Instagram with constant likes and adoring comments.

There’s no denying a lot has changed in 2019 for the pair – back in December, fans were sent into frenzy when Liv appeared to be hiding a hint of a baby bump.

Onlookers who spotted the bump said the pair looked “infatuated with each other”, and that Chris acted quite protective of Liv as they posed for photos with their mates.

“They’ve been talking about starting a family. And with Chris being a tiny bit older than Liv, it definitely wouldn’t be a surprise if it happens sooner rather than later. It’s something they both really want,” a source told Woman’s Day.

Sadly, it seems the rumours have been put to rest as the pair apparently go their separate ways.
