The Bodyguard’s Richard Madden has reportedly split from his long-term girlfriend Ellie Bamber following an 18 month relationship.
The actor, 32, and his girlfriend, 21, are believed to have gone through a rocky patch where they ‘argued every day’ but have now split after deciding that their problems weren’t fixable.
The couple, who were once rarely seen without one another, have apparently become ‘worlds apart’ following Richard’s acting success, an insider told the Sun.

The source added that the split has come as a huge blow to Richard and Ellie, but they believe the decision is in their best interests.

They told the news outlet: ‘They were arguing almost daily towards the end and, despite considering couples’ therapy, it became evident there were far too many issues that could not be fixed.  
‘Richard is the toast of Hollywood at the moment, and understandably wants to let his hair down.

‘Ellie is a bit quieter, and wants to focus purely on her work. It felt like their day-to-day lives were increasingly becoming worlds apart. 
They continued that Richard and Ellie were never apart during the early days of their relationship, which meant that families became close too, therefore those close to them are also devastated by the break up. 
The pair are apparently trying to remain amicable following the split in a bid to stay friends. 
MailOnline have contacted Richard’s and Ellie’s reps for comment.

The news comes after the Scottish hunk took home the Best Actor in a Television Drama gong at the 76th annual Golden Globes in LA, for hit drama Bodyguard. 
Richard was riding solo at the event with no sign of Ellie Bamber, who in December told Red magazine: ‘Being away [filming] puts a strain on family and friends.’
While Ellie has made a name for herself in Hollywood productions such as Nocturnal Animals and The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, it’s Richard currently basking in the glow of the spotlight, thanks to the runaway hit that was Bodyguard.

The drama aired on BBC One in the autumn, and then transferred to Netflix, where American audiences enjoyed it just as much.
Richard plays the titular role – Sergeant David Budd, an Afghanistan war veteran and Protection Command bodyguard, tasked with protecting The Right Honourable Julia Montague [Keeley Hawes] the Home Secretary.
He beat fellow Brit Matthew Rhys, who starred in The Americans, as well as Hollywood’s Jason Bateman for Ozark, in scooping the coveted accolade.
According to reports, Bond producers are on the brink of approaching Madden to take arguably the most famous role in British film, thanks to his impressive turn in Bodyguard, as the brooding cop.
