Russell Tovey splits from fiance Steve Brockman just months after engagement

Russell Tovey has split from his rugby player fiance Steve Brockman man just months after he confirmed they were engaged.

The British actor, who was living in New York, had erased all trace of Steve from his Instagram recently.

This prompted one of his fans to ask: @Russelltovey are you still with @Steve_The_Brockman?"

To which the Quantico actor replied, "No darling."

Steve, who is now working as a fitness coach, hasn’t yet addressed the split. The last picture he posted of them together on Instagram was on March 16.

Back in February, Russell confirmed their engagement, revealing it was a total surprise.

"Completely unexpected but very, very happy and looking forward to having a proper party to celebrate when back in London," the Essex-born star told the MailOnline.

It’s thought the pair started dating in 2016, with former Kings Cross Steelers rugby player Steve later moving to New York to be with Russell while he appeared in National Theatre show Angels, which also starred Andrew Garfield.

Russell, who appeared in US series Quantico alongside Priyanka Chopra, came out when he was 18 but didn’t take on gay roles until much later in his career.


Previously talking to The Guardian about his decision, he said: “It wasn’t a conscious decision.

"And it was only the other day that I realised it had been important somehow.

"For so long, as a young actor, I had this anxiety about making sure I could get straight roles, and now I know that’s not necessary.

"The gay roles are the best for me. Being gay has made my career.”

In May, ABC announced that Quantico was being cancelled after three seasons.
