The Pembrokeshire Murders actor Luke Evans has responded to reports he has split with boyfriend Rafael Olarra.
The Beauty and the Beast actor, who plays Steve Wilkins in ITV's gritty real life drama, replied "it is what it is," when asked about being single once more.
Luke, 41, had been dating Rafael for 18 months and regularly posted snaps of themselves online – but never had spoken publicly about the relationship.
After seeing headlines about his relationship online, Luke updated his official Instagram story with a longer statement.
The Versace model added: "Just to be very clear, no one, I repeat, no one, knows what is going on in my personal life apart from me.
"A simple one word comment made in an interview does not give gossip magazines anything more than that."
He added: "The truth is, they know very little about what's really going on in my life.
"Relationships are hard, breakups are hard, and nothing is black and white.
"Love is a complex animal."
During the same interview, Luke told The Times he hopes to become a dad in the near future.
"I thought about it many times and as I get older I'm thinking maybe I should get on and do it. I don't want to be an old dad . . . but I would like to be a dad.
"There's a lot of satisfaction to passing on your experiences and rearing a strong, open-minded, kind, respectful human being who can go out in the world and do something good."
