London - Henry Cavill has reportedly split from fiancée Ellen Whitaker.

The Man of Steel actor, who takes over the role of Superman in the big screen, is said to have called time on his three-year relationship with the professional show jumper as it was no longer working.

A source said: "They just weren't getting on."

Ellen - who met Henry in 2009 at the Olympia International Horse Show - has reportedly moved in with her best friend in Newcastle, North East England, to concentrate on her horses, while Henry is going from strength-to-strength with his career.

The 29-year-old heartthrob proposed to Ellen at his birthday party in Hollywood last May and she said how he had surprised her by popping the question.

She said: "I couldn't believe it when he asked me to marry him. I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy."

The couple have not been seen together since June and Henry recently refused to answers questions about the engagement.

He said: "I'll talk about that another time. This summer I am taking time off and relaxing."
