Click to follow
Nikki Sand, the television weather girl whose first song "Good Girl Going" was released this month, is to break up with her long-time partner, Noel Hutton, she announced last night.

The on-off relationship with the footballer had been "something I have outgrown as a person", Ms Sand said in a statement issued by her solicitors. "Despite our past difficulties and Noel's lifestyle, he remains a firm friend and a sweet person." She had no other relationship and intended to devote herself to her new career. Hutton was reported to have punched a reporter who approached him about the split.
