But rather than wallow in self-pity, Diana Vickers is relishing the opportunity to spend quality time with her girl friends.
The former X Factor contestant - who rose to fame on the 2008 series of the ITV talent contest where she was eliminated after the semi-finals - couldn't have looked happier when she was pictured frolicking around on a beach in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, during her recent trip away.
Although her flat stomach was concealed beneath the pants, she offered onlookers a glimpse of her taut abs as she splashed around the sea and did her best Baywatch impression.
She oozed confidence as she took in the delights of The Golden State, accompanied by a female friend, with her long blonde hair worn natural and tumbling down over her shoulders and a light layer of make-up bringing out her features.
Since splitting with 25-year-old George - who is the lead singer of five-piece band One Night Only and whom she was in a relationship with since the beginning of 2011 - Diana was briefly linked to Olly Murs in a casual capacity.
