Kate drops footy player

Article from: The Daily Telegraph


SHATTERED Rugby League player Chris Walker is nursing a broken heart after his soap-star girlfriend Kate Ritchie called off their five-year romance this week. :o

In a dramatic sequence of events that would rival a Home and Away plot line, a devastated Walker this week split from the Melbourne Storm and fled to his family home in Queensland to seek comfort and guidance from his parents in the wake of the break-up.

While the TV starlet was unavailable for comment yesterday, sources from the Seven network confirmed the relationship has been heavily strained since Walker was removed by police from a Melbourne hotel where Ritchie was staying two weeks ago.

"I knew things were very rocky, so I was surprised to hear Chris saying this week that he and Kate were still in love and very much together,'' a Seven insider said yesterday.

"It's no surprise that they've broken up.''

Summer Bay veteran Ritchie - whose shiny profile was elevated with a silver Logie win earlier this year - is understood to have been fed up with Walker persistently living up to his reputation as the bad boy of league.

Despite its longevity, their union has been fraught with difficulty - with the couple enduring several public break-ups over the years.

Currently left stranded without the love of his life or a football career, Walker is expected to spend the next few weeks recuperating in Queensland with his parents.

Meanwhile, consummate showbiz professional Ritchie will be forced to plaster on a smile when she takes to the stage in the It Takes Two finale on Sunday nigh
