Despite her recent romantic woes, Faye was all smiles as she arrived at the event with a friend brandishing a Pride flag in her hand.

Faye, who quit the ITV soap earlier this year, was joined at the event by her former co-stars Charlie Di Melo and Sally Dynevor, made the most of the day as the cast laughed and joked on board a float.

Faye and Gareth split secretly last month following a series of bitter rows, but neither party want to spend time dwelling on the break-up.

It was revealed last week that the couple had gone their separate ways, but an insider explained that the couple actually split last month, and Faye had moved out of his flat by mid July.

The pair are said to have called an end to their wedding plans after Gareth disagreed with the Coronation Street star going out with her friends.

Yet it appears there won’t be any bad blood between them as Faye just wants to ‘move on’ from the drama. 

The couple have also had time to heal as they managed to split and move out from their shared apartment before the news broke that they had parted ways.

The source revealed: ‘Faye and Gareth parted ways around a month ago, and she moved out of their flat in mid July. She had stopped wearing her engagement ring then too.’

They added: ‘They had been disagreeing a lot, in particular Gareth was very vocal about who she associated with, and he had strong opinions about her career.

‘She knows them breaking up is for the best and just wants to move on with her life.

‘Faye is staying in Manchester where her family and so many of her friends are, and Gareth has regular work on a cruise ship which takes him out of the country a lot.’

Representatives for Faye and Gareth declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.
