THEY had only just got back together six weeks ago, but Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have broken up again.
The couple were an item for two and a half years until splitting in November 2021, but have been seen together several times in New York in recent weeks following a kiss at Coachella festival in California in April.

But I’m told they are now over once again — and this time it’s for good.
A source said: “Shawn and Camila have a lot of history and they tested the waters again after coming back into each other’s lives.
“But it was just a fling and they’ve put an end to it now.
“They realised it was probably a mistake to give things another shot. Things ended between them the first time for a reason, after all.
“In reality, both of them know they aren’t right for each other romantically and now they just want to move on.”
When they parted ways in 2021, they released a statement confirming their separation.
But I’m told this reunion has been so short-lived that they now want to move on without speaking about it.
At the time, they said: “Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever.
“We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.
“We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward.”
The split inspired Camila’s song Bam Bam, in which she appeared to take aim at him, given he had shared photos of himself surfing shortly after they went their separate ways.
In that track, she sang: “You said you hated the ocean but you’re surfing now.
“I said I’d love you for life, but I just sold our house.”
Shawn also released the songs It’ll Be Okay and When You’re Gone.
In the latter, he crooned: “You never know how good you have it until you’re staring at a picture of the only girl that matters.”
Given both of them are believed to be working on new music, I imagine it won’t be long before they’re singing about this situation.
Check match for Vick
VICK HOPE was ready for the summer sun in this coordinated bra top and skirt.
The DJ, who is just weeks away from marrying fiancé Calvin Harris, wore the pretty outfit to the Royal Academy of Arts preview party, which was also attended by Charli XCX and Nick Grimshaw in London on Tuesday evening.

But her look was a lot more refined than her Radio 1 show. Earlier in the day, she had fooled around on air with BBC co-host Jordan North, playing a game where he sniffed a chair and tried to guess who had sat there.
And in another feature, he put on a bra and listeners heard how Vick attempted to stuff as many fake boob “chicken fillets” into the cups as possible.
(Just in case you were wondering, it was nine.)
Could States add up for Ed

He was surrounded by hundreds of adoring fans to perform some of his biggest hits, but revealed it’s the States that could be the inspiration for the next stage of his career.
Referring to his recently completed series of mathematically themed albums on NBC’s Today programme, he explained: “I’ve known for the past 13 years what Mathematics would be, and now it’s, like, what to do next?
“There’s lots of questions going around in my head.
“I lived in Nashville for a couple of years, and I kind of fell in love with country music there.
“That’s something I would love to do at some point.”
TOM TAKES A BREAK TO RECOVER
TOM HOLLAND is taking a year-long hiatus from acting after his psychological thriller The Crowded Room “broke” him.
The British Spider-Man actor said of the Apple TV+ series: “It was a tough time. We were exploring certain emotions that I’ve definitely never experienced before.
“And then on top of that, being a producer – dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set – just added that extra level of pressure.
“But I really enjoyed it. I loved the learning curve of becoming a producer. I’m no stranger to hard work – I’ve always lived by this idea that hard work is good work.
“But then again, the show did break me. There came a time I was like, ‘I need to have a break’.
“I’m now taking a year off, and that is a result of how difficult this show was.” Speaking to ExtraTV in America, he added: “I am excited to see how it turns out, and I feel like our hard work wasn’t in vain.”
Dougie feared missing Mark
McFLY’s Dougie Poynter feared he would never see Blink-182 rocker Mark Hoppus again after they penned a song together while the US star had cancer.

Dougie co-wrote the track Route 55 with his long-time pal for McFly’s new album Power To Play, which is out tomorrow, shortly after Mark was diagnosed with stage four cancer in 2021.
But thankfully the American star has since recovered and is now free of the disease.
Dougie said: “We’ve written quite a few with him. But I was worried – I thought that last one, Route 55, might be the last time.
“It’s fun writing with your friends and that’s really the only people I hang out with now, people we write songs with. But he’s all good.”
Their new album sees the band – which also includes Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Harry Judd – lean into their rockier side and they hope it will inspire youngsters.
Tom said: “I think my kids are going to want to pick up a guitar and jump around their bedroom to this. That’s literally what’s happening.”
His eldest son, Buzz, is certainly a fan. Tom added: “I took the album back to him and went upstairs and he had his headphones on listening to this album trying to play the riff.”
Danny continued: “To inspire kids who want to play guitar or want to get into bands, we don’t have any advice but we can play an album that maybe will inspire them.”
But there is just one problem, as they drop the F-bomb on the record.
Harry admitted: “It’s not ideal though because I have to turn it down every time my children want to listen to it.”
Tom added: “Yeah the swearing is in my kids’ favourite ones, annoyingly.”
RITA ORA had no reason to feel blue as she hit the red carpet alongside her filmmaker hubby Taika Waititi for the opening night of Sydney Film Festival.
The Body On Me singer wore a matching Versace top and skirt, costing £6,000, as Taika premiered his new film Red, White & Brass.
She has joined the Kiwi director Down Under while filming for her role as a coach on The Voice Australia.
But with winter fast approaching there, I’m sure she’ll be back in Britain basking in the sun in no time.
Noel has a Eurovision admission
NOEL GALLAGHER admits he’s a secret Eurovision fan – rating it one of his “favourite weekends of the year”.

Noel, whose band High Flying Birds hope for a No1 tomorrow with fourth album Council Skies, told Jessie Ware’s Table Manners podcast: “I f***ing love just getting p***ed and watching the utter insanity of Eurovision. I watch it in private and laugh my b*****ks off. Eurovision is far out.”
Revealing how he first fell for it, Noel added: “I remember watching it the year when some Finnish guys . . . it was like a black metal group, and they were all dressed up, called Lordi. I was sat watching it, a bit stoned, and thinking, ‘What the f***?’
“Then they won it because obviously people were voting to take the p***. Ever since, this is essential viewing.”
Swifties drive Matt off the net
MATTY HEALY has quit the internet in the wake of his split from Taylor Swift after her fans attacked him online.

The 1975 frontman admitted he has been trolled “relentlessly” on social media but insisted having his friends rallying around him was all the support he needed.
During a show in Austria, he said: “I’m sure people have just been calling me a c*** relentlessly. I’ve not been online, but what I have been with is my boys.”
Referring to a sign in the audience which said “You are loved”, he continued: “It’s so beautiful, and I thank you.
“But I don’t need it, because I’ve got them.”
The group played Dublin last night, while Taylor’s tour hits Detroit tomorrow.
There will be plenty more to say in their shows over the next few weeks, I’m sure.
