Did Heidi Range and Dave Berry split because he was a 'naughty boy'?
They seemed like one of showbiz's strongest couples.
But Now's learnt that Dave Berry and his fiancée, Sugababes' Heidi Range, had been on thin ice for a long time before they announced their split on 10 December.
And in an explosive revelation, we've been told that three weeks before they went public about their break-up, Dave drunkenly let slip to passengers on a transatlantic flight that he'd been ‘a naughty boy'.
A friend's also revealed that Capital FM DJ Dave's been at the centre of several unsubstantiated rumours concerning drunken nights where he's been a ‘little too flirty' with various girls.
Now's gossip antenna first twitched when we heard that Dave, 33, had been spilling the beans to passengers during a Virgin Atlantic flight from New York to London in November.
One fellow traveller told us: ‘He got drunk and was flirting with the female crew.
'He was at the bar in the Upper Class cabin, asking the girls if they had partners.
‘Then he said he'd just broken up with his girlfriend as he'd been "a naughty boy".
'He wouldn't say any more, but he was all over a couple of women who were flirting around him.'
Another pal says Dave's known for getting flirty.
He reveals: ‘There have been rumours about him with girls while he's out on the lash.'
The allegations follow an incident in August when Dave was pictured appearing to kiss Alexa Chung.
Shortly after, Alexa split with long-term love Alex Turner.
Dave denied it was what it seemed, saying: ‘There was a photo that looked like we were kissing.
