Despite saying that’s exactly what she didn’t want to happen, Keira Maguire has spoken out about her split with Jarrod Woodgate, revealing the person who came between them and hitting back at claims Instagram was to blame for their split.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Keira says the 32-year-old refused to compromise and that "[she] made a lot of sacrifices and he made none."
"I moved in with his whole family,” she continued. “We were originally meant to live with them and then find a place of our own … when it came time he said no.”
“He would spend more time with his mum than with me," she added.
“He spends five days a week with his mum and then saw me on the weekend, so it’s a massive demographic drop,” she also told Who magazine.
As for Jarrod’s claims that Instagram took over their relationship, Keira called it a “cop out”.
“For me he knew what he was getting himself into,” she told Who. “You’re going onto a reality TV show and if you’re going to date someone that does come hand in hand, it’s a part of my brand and it is my business.”
The reality star admits that the couple had a breakdown in communication because she had no idea he felt that way, but says she just wants him to be happy.
“I understand where he’s coming from but it’s a very surface level reason, and there’s a lot of things that went on behind closed doors.”
Keira, who is the new face of Deliveroo’s break-up delivery service, says Jarrod dumped her via text message and the pair are yet to even have a conversation in person.
“Deliveroo saw that Jarrod and I had broken up and he had done it over text and they were like a little bit disappointed and were like he probably should have sent you a pizza - obviously it would have been nice if Jarrod sent me a pizza, but it’s not too late.”
