Former DR WHO star Christopher Eccleston has ditched his actress girlfriend SIWAN MORRIS after announcing he had "moved on" from the relationship.

The troubled pair's partnership hit the rocks after he claimed he needed space, but they were said to have rekindled their love in recent months.

And Morris, 28, is devastated at being dumped, as she was convinced their romance was "special".

A friend of the pair says, "He really liked Siwan an they had fun together but he thought the relationship had run its course."

But Morris confessed to a pal, "I thought we had something special. I was gutted."
