GARETH Gates seems to be finally enjoying single life – being spotted partying hard in Ibiza alongside a mystery blonde woman.
The singer is currently visiting the Balearic party island on a trip he originally planned as a holiday for ex-fiance Faye Brookes’ birthday.
But the 35-year-old didn’t look too heartbroken as he danced with his pals at lavish beach resort and club, O Beach Ibiza.
The star partied with his sister Charlotte, 29, alongside O Beach owner Wayne Lineker and other pals.
His time in the Spanish island has been caught on Instagram, with friend Arran Anzani-Jones documenting the party on his story.
He also spent no time showing off his abs as soon as he touched down on the sunny resort.
In one video, Gates and his mate give each other a kiss on the cheek, with Arran saying they are “living their best lives”.
Then later on, the star can be spotted with a beer in his hand dancing next to a mystery blonde girl – while sister Charlotte sits down away to his side.
Gareth flew out to the party in style, wearing a full Versace outfit complete with sunglasses, black T-shirt and skimpy black shorts.
Meanwhile, Faye Brookes, 32, has been celebrating her birthday in London.
She shared photos of herself laughing and drinking in Soho House, as well as of her hotel, the Lincoln Plaza in London.
One post quoted a line from poet E. E. Cummings, saying: “The most wasted of all days is the one without laughter…”
Former Corrie actress Faye split with the Pop Idol star in August after dating on and off for seven years.
Gareth popped the question in January of this year while on a trip to New York with Faye Brookes. He got down on one knee and presented her with a four-carat ring.
The pair said they would “remain friends” after the split, but a source close to them revealed to The Sun Online that Gareth’s “controlling” behaviour raised red flags for the actress.
A source told us: “Faye is such an independent and strong woman and she found Gareth’s controlling nature hard.
“He was desperate to manage her and take charge of her career but she really wasn’t keen on the idea.”
After the split, Faye was quickly connected with a hunky fitness trainer called Joe, who works at the same gym she attends.
A source close to the singer told The Sun Online: “Poor Gareth is absolutely heartbroken. He’s in pieces.
“Towards the end of their relationship, Faye started having mysterious late night gym sessions and saying she was out with new gym pals.
“About five weeks ago they had a blazing row, and Gareth confronted Faye about Joe. He felt something wasn’t right, though she insisted they were friends.”
However, she took to Twitter to quash those rumours. She wrote: “I imagine that suggestions could be made from these pics that there is more to this. There isn’t.”
While the former Dancing on Ice star is partying with his pals, Faye Brookes has been posting cryptic messages on Instagram.
In one post, she wrote about “stable relationships” and loving “the person you’ve worked to become”.
She wrote: “Build a stable relationship with yourself before attempting to build a stable relationship with another person.”
