  • The Over the Rainbow star and her two children jetted out of Cardiff airport yesterday for some alone time in the sun

    Sad star Charlotte Church fled the country with her two children yesterday, in the wake of her split from rugby beau Gavin Henson.


    After announcing their break-up last weekend, it was Gavin who first sought some sun, jetting straight off to party capital Benidorm when the news hit.

    And after being spotted seeking solace in some retail therapy and spending time with her family, it seems Charlotte has also decided she needs some time away.

    Reports suggest she has already put the couple’s £1.2 million country pad on the market, but is keen to ‘minimise the impact’ the split has on their two children.

    And now she and the children are rumoured to have fled to a resort in Europe, with friends revealing she ‘just wants to be alone’.

    ‘It’s a bit odd Charlotte is in one Mediterranean resort while Gavin is at another,’ one friend told the Daily Mail.

    ‘Charlotte didn’t tell any of her friends where she was going – she just wants to be alone.

    ‘She wouldn’t say where she was going or when she was coming back which is a bit unlike Charlotte. I think she is just saddened that she and Gav have finally broken up.’

    The pair – who got engaged just weeks ago – have been quick to deny reports that there was anyone else involved in the split, after Gavin was spotted getting cosy with Footballers’ Wives star Suzie Amy on a recent charity trip.

    But friends of the couple say they are not surprised at the split. ‘It has been on the cards for a while if you ask me,‘ one said.
