Mum tells Charlotte Church: Dump Jonathan Powell for Gavin Henson!
However, it didn't take long for her to bounce back, thanks to her mum setting her up with struggling musician Jonathan Powell.
But fast-forward a year and it seems everything has changed: Now has learnt that Charlotte's mum Maria is seriously regretting playing cupid and is desperate for the singer, 25, to reunite with former fiancé Gavin, 29.
Perhaps constant talk of him wanting to find a wife on his new show The Bachelor has something to do with it?
A close friend of Maria tells Now: ‘Maria says that Jonathan's a nice guy but she now realises that's not enough for Charlotte.
'She thinks her daughter needs a man who can take the wheel for her now and again.
'With Jonathan, Charlotte's definitely the one in charge and he falls in line.'
