Made in Chelsea series 19 came to an end on Monday, April 27th.
E4 should have broadcast the full season, but the show was cut short due to the coronavirus crisis.
The end credits of episode 6 brought highly-anticipated updates on some Made in Chelsea couples, though viewers were left gutted after learning that Tristan and Verity had called it quits.
So, why did Tristan and Verity break up?
Tristan and Verity’s relationship timeline
Tristan and Verity met on Made in Chelsea’s series 18 back in 2019.
At the time, Verity was dating James Taylor. After they broke up, things between Verity and Tristan started heating up. Tristan had his eye on Emily Blackwell too, but his chemistry with Verity was much stronger.
Tristan and Verity made it official on their Instagram in October 2019 when both of them started sharing snaps together.

Why did Tristan and Verity break up?
Tristan addressed on the first episode of series 20 (Monday September 28th) that he went into lockdown and was “dumped savagely two weeks in”. He revealed he didn’t know why Verity had broken up with him.
When they were reunited, Verity explained why she broke up with Tristan. She said:
Every time we spoke on the phone I’d end up crying in tears and I was just so overwhelmed with what was going on. I just checked out. Our relationship wasn’t our relationship any more.
In series 20, Verity and Tristan have been dating other people, such as Tristan’s romance with Liv Bentley and Verity’s new man Charlie Frederick.
Before the break up, the two regularly shared loved-up selfies on Instagram and some of Tristan and Verity’s last social media posts together date back to March 2020. So they must have separated in April since the two were very much in love!
Plus, Tristan shared a self-love post at the beginning of April, saying to “always make sure you love the person looking back at you from the mirror”.
