The couple, who have been dating for almost two years, have struggled to spend quality time together while Sair has thrown herself into filming for Channel 4’s Sink Or Swim. A TV source close to the actress said: “Sair has found the challenge of learning to swim from scratch really tough. “Training has been more difficult than she expected and it has really taken its toll on her emotionally and pushed her relationship to breaking point. 9 The couple are thought to have struggled to spend quality time together as pressure at work mounts Credit: Getty Images - Getty “Previously, the pair spent a lot of their spare time together. “Now both of them have huge work commitments and are at pivotal times in their careers. They have tried to make it work but are taking some time to give each other breathing space.” It comes as heartbroken Sair tragically lost her mother this year. This week’s episode of the C4 Channel-swimming show saw her visit a hypnotherapist to help her deal with her anxiety. 9 Sair's training for Channel 4's Sink or Swim has put added pressure on the relationship Credit: Channel 4 images She said: “I’ve really had my ups and downs with anxiety and this challenge, you feel so raw, you feel so vulnerable.” Gushing about Simon ahead of her jungle stint last year, Sair opened up about their close relationship. She said: “It was really emotional leaving him, but I was like, ‘Babe, this is an amazing adventure. Don’t worry, we’re going to see each other in a month’. “I’m going to miss him, but it’s not like I’m going away forever.” She may have spoken too soon. bizbit LOVE Island’s India Reynolds has denied cheating on Ovie Soko with footballer Kieran Gibbs. A source close to her said: “She’s in love with Ovie and would never hurt him. She’s shocked and hurt at the claims.” On Loose Women Jonathan Ross told how he regretted missing a last chance to see his mum before she died. He said: “She had a form of cancer but we were told it was liveable and we assumed she’d be around a lot longer.” Lineker tops up earnings with ITV role He is the BBC’s highest-paid star, but Gary Lineker’s next gig will not be with the corporation. The Match Of The Day host has landed himself a presenting job on rival channel ITV – and it’s not his usual gig. 9 Gary Lineker will be popping up on ITV for a brand new role on a quiz show Instead of discussing the day’s football with Alan Shearer and co, he is to front a “high stakes, high tension quiz”. Called Sitting On A Fortune, the quiz is appropriately named for Gary, above, who is paid £1.75million for his work on MOTD and related shows. He is shooting a pilot for the potential series in Manchester the week after next. A source said: “ITV have always been a great admirer of Gary’s work, so asked if he’d like to front a new pilot they’re recording with a view to a full series. “It might raise a few eyebrows given how much he earns at the BBC, but he is allowed to work for other broadcasters. 9 Linker is the BBC's highest earner - he is paid £1.75million for his work on Match of The Day Credit: PA:Press Association “The quiz show in question will see contestants win a life-changing sum every single episode by answering tricky questions.” Hopefully these questions will be better than the ones he constantly gets about the Match Of The Day running order. Scherzinger's got flare Nicole Scherzinger has clearly still got a flare for telly talent contests. But she looked like she’d disappeared into the red carpet as she arrived at the launch of series two of The Masked Singer in the US. 9 Nicole Scherzinger rocked up to the launch of The Masked Singer in wide-legged red trousers and a long sleeved black top Credit: The Mega Agency The former Pussycat Doll is one of the judges on the show, which is due here in 2020 – and returns to the judging panel of X Factor later this year. But as she’ll be sitting alongside Simon Cowell, she won’t be the one wearing the trousers this time. 9 The show is due over here in the UK in 2020 Credit: Rex Features Sugar's so sour at Mark After Adele, Ariana Grande and Harry Styles all got one-hour BBC specials, now super-producer Mark Ronson is to be the subject of a one-off BBC2 documentary. Among the talking heads already signed up for it are Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Boy George, Quincy Jones and Simon Le Bon. 9 Musician Mark Ronson is set to receive his very own BBC2 documentary Credit: Alamy Live News But one man who may not be in the programme, to be shown later this year, is Lord Sugar, who had an unlikely clash with Mark this week. After watching him perform on last week’s Strictly, the grouchy Apprentice boss questioned the seven-times Grammy winner’s ability, tweeting: “Can Mark Ronson play an instrument properly? Or does he just, like, be on stage making a few noises supporting the real talent?” Lord Sugar said even he “can strum a guitar or press a few keys on a keyboard”. It prompted Mark to mock some of the typos in the peer’s tweets, adding: “Me also write good. Let me know if you ever want to come to a show and hear some noise.” must watch Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out, BBC1, 9pm. WHY?
