Kate and Gin, the Border Collie at the centre of the Britain's Got Talent vote-rigging allegations, are to split, say friends of the lesbian couple.
Pressure of work and "irrevocable differences" have been sited as the main reasons for the split, although the fact that Gin is a dog hasn't helped either. There have even been rumours that the Collie had "found someone else".
The strange pair won viewers' hearts with their 'dancing performance' in the recent ITV competition, and were able to blind the public and distort its perception of talent with their mundane 'doggy does tricks' routine.
Failure to win the talent competition has now resulted in the irrepairable rift, and yesterday, an inconsolable Kate slung Gin's kennel out into the street.
Friends of Gin say she will recover, but it may take a bone.
