I can reveal the couple have called time on their romance, with the split set to be laid bare on her upcoming record High As Hope.

A music source said: “Florence and Felix are childhood friends and have always shared a very deep connection, but things haven’t worked out.

“While they remain on good terms, the split has been tough on Florence and she hasn’t held back on her new album — writing and singing is how she’s dealt with it.” Florence and ­MACCABEES star Felix, who went to school together in Dulwich, South London, became music’s hot new ­couple back in 2015 after her rocky romance with events planner James Nesbitt — not to be confused with the actor — ended.

That split inspired tearjerker album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, which was nominated for five Grammys and also included tunes about Felix. He told Bizarre at the time: “It’s a wonderful record. It means a lot.”

But he probably won’t be quite so appreciative this time. High As Hope, out on June 29, even includes a track called The End Of Love.

Felix will be hoping it’s not quite as confessional as the last one.

RITA ORA debuted her new flame-red hair in place of her blonde style at a gig in her parents’ home country Albania. The singer turned up the heat for Sunday’s performance in a bright yellow leotard and fishnets.

It comes after weeks of controversy over her new single Girls, with the bisexual star accused of making light of lesbian relationships.

She’ll no doubt be hoping her new ’do can brush all that under the carpet for a moment.

Reese has signed up for another Legally Blonde film, 15 years after Legally Blonde 2

The actress, who has recently been showing off her serious dramatic chops in hit HBO telly series Big Little Lies, will return to one of her most famous roles 15 years on from Legally Blonde 2, in which the unlikely legal ace takes on Washington, D.C.

The new storyline is currently under wraps but will channel female empowerment in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Marc Platt, the producer of the original movies, is also attached to the project, although Reese is said to be even more of a driving force behind the scenes this time around.

With all those key elements falling into place, MGM ­studio chiefs are now searching for a director.
