: "They're still friends, but there isn't any romance anymore."Back in August the new couple were reported to have seemed very amorous as they ate at Carluccio's restaurant in Chiswick, West London.
An alleged onlooker said that they looked like "a pair of 18-year-olds" as they kissed and stroked each other's hands.
And Vic, who plays Marty Hopkirk to sidekick Bob Mortimer's Jeff Randall, was still married to his stunning blonde wife of six years, Sarah Moir, at the time.
Intriguingly, she met her current boyfriend, artist Toby Mott, eight months ago while making Randall & Hopkirk. "Of course it's sad when any relationship ends, but I believe things have worked out for the best.
"It was a mutual decision to end the relationship," says Emilia tersely, scotching rumours that she left Vic because of his party lifestyle and wine-induced rows. We are still friends, but there's no chance we'll resume our engagement or get married. Let's just say we were both ready to move on." For Emilia, moving on meant cultivating her relationship with 35-year-old sculptor-cum-clothes designer Toby Mott.
Even Vic Reeves couldn't have written this extraordinarily wacky script.
So when the comedian announced his engagement to budding young actress Emilia Fox, last September, some doubting cynics wondered whether it was just another elaborate publicity stunt.
In a bizarre twist, she even joined Vic on double dates - with his wife and her lesbian lover.But now their whirlwind romance is over, the engagement has been called off, and Emilia is dating another man, although she and Vic remain good friends.Before this brief romance with White, Fox dated peace campaigner Jeremy Gilley, with whom she has daughter Rose.From the outside, they seemed like the most unlikely couple in showbusiness: a 40-year-old former pig farmer turned alternative comedian from Darlington, meets young Oxford graduate turned costume drama actress, with a voice like cut glass.Apparently, love crept up on Vic and Millie, as she is known to friends, over the four months it took to film the action drama in Slough, Berkshire.Within a matter of weeks, Emilia had moved into Vic's riverside London apartment and helped him move into his mock-Tudor country mansion.
