TOWIE’s Harry Derbidge breaks silence on heartbreaking split from fiancé Dean Rowland: ‘I gave so much!’

Harry Derbidge is set to discuss his "heartbreaking" split from fiancé Dean Rowland on Sunday's episode of The Only Way Is Essex.

Dean, 30, revealed in October that he and Harry, 27, had split following a two-year engagement and four year romance, saying that he still has the "utmost respect" for his ex.

The sad news came after the former couple had put their adoption plans on hold and cancelled their wedding twice last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Sunday's episode of TOWIE, Harry is comforted by his cousin Amy Childs, where he admits that he gave "so much" to his relationship with Dean that it even caused "arguments".

As the duo tuck into food outside, Harry admits: "Thank you, so lovely, exactly what I needed."

To which a concerned Amy asks: "I love you, are you okay?"

With Harry replying: "Obviously, I'm single again…"

Amy then gently asks her cousin what happened, saying: "Harry, what happened? Was it just not right in the end? Talk to me!"

Discussing his "heartbreaking" split, Harry admits: "To be with someone for four years… and for it to not work out, it has just been the most heartbreaking like awful thing I've had to go through.

"I gave so much to this relationship, I gave everything to it!"

With Amy replying: "I know you did."

Opening up on his former relationship, Harry continues: "To the point where I'd give so much… that it would actually cause an argument."

It comes after Dean revealed in October that he and Harry had split following a two-year engagement and four year romance.

The sad news came after the former couple had put their adoption plans on hold and cancelled their wedding twice last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Taking to Instagram in October, Dean penned in an emotional statement: "After 4 long amazing years, Harry and I have decided to part ways. It's with a really heavy heart and absolute anxiety that I'm sharing this with you all.

"'It feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it's a consequence of the lives we've chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We're living in an incredible moment in time, but it's also a time where truth can easily be distorted into "alternative facts" 🙂

"So, I want to share the truth, so you know that it's most certainly fiction if you didn't read it here.

"Everyone on here, friends and social friends, have supported our relationship and been behind us no matter what we have been going through, be it our adoption process, giving us advice on our little 2 French bulldogs and just being a massive supporter of our business @celebritybrushes.

"After 4 long amazing years, Harry and I have decided to part ways; this is totally on good terms. Nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure taking us different paths for now.

"There are no secret nor salacious events at the root of decision- just two best friends realising it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible.

"I would trust him with anything and he still remains that important person in my life.

"No relationship is easy, and we all know this, but with my hand on my heart, I can say the last 4 years have been the most amazing memories I could have ever asked for in a human being. We have laughed, cried and drunk a lot of wine, and after all of this, I still have the utmost respect for Harry and his decisions going forward.

"Not only was Harry a lifelong partner for me, but he also was my best friend I did everything with, and although I've lost the connection on that level he's still my best friend and someone I trust with my life.

"We are still a family and will always be dedicated to our business Celebrity Brushes.
