Frankie Sandford and Dougie Poynter - you two just tire us out. We've just finished compiling a complete timeline of their relationship and wow, it's intense, with more ups and downs, twists and turns than Lindsey Lohan's career. We've loved them, laughed with them, experienced their heart ache, felt mildly hopeful when they broke up (even though we didn't want them to but, hey, Dougie was single). Now we are full of sorrow because the ending well... it's a tragedy people.

So here it begins, the tale of woe:

The two reportedly first got together in 08 (a looooong time ago!). Although Dougie had a crush on Frankie (like every other boy in the UK) back in 2004. He admitted to having posters of her on his wall and said she was his "ideal woman". Awww Dougster.

 

This was one of their first official outings as a couple in March of 09. They were papped leaving the birthday party of Frankie's band mate Rochelle Wiseman.

The two were said to be smitten with each other. Frankie gushed to all the papers how hot her boyfriend was. We'd totally do them same. In fact, we'd probably wear a t-shirt at all times saying, "My bf is hot (and in Mcfly)".

Is it just us but while Frankie seems to be enjoying the pap attention, Dougie appears a little down in the dumps?

In April 09 Frankie appeared on our front cover and in the interview revealed just how much she loved Dougie confessing, "We're so loved up. I hate it when he goes away". Yet, tragedy was just about to strike...

It was a dark day in March 10 when we reported their split. What had driven them to it? It was so unclear! They had been so in love.

Dougie tried to enjoy a night out with fellow Mcfly bandmates but er... he doesn't seem very chipper. Although apparently the boys left the club with two pretty girls at 3am.

 In the same month they broke up, Frankie was spotted holding hands with a new man. Oooooo.

Next thing we knew, the two were at the Mayfair Hotel having a heart to heart. Frankie was seen crying on Dougie's shoulder.

Wish we could hear what was being said!! We imagine she's talking about her deep well of conflicted feelings and he's reflecting on how fit she is.

 Frankie was then seen checking them into the hotel for the night. Reconciliation?

A few days later Saturday's member Mollie King reported the two were BACK ON! "They're such a pefect couple and we're glad they're back on," she said, "I think they missed each other and really do love each other."

In May the two were seen out in public again but the waters were not calm yet. Onlookers reported that Frankie was holding on to Dougie's hand tightly when they arrived, but minutes later he shook her off and wouldn't pose for any pics with her.

In July 2010 things look like they had become MORE confusing when Dougie was spotted holding Frankie's bandmate, Mollie King, but it was all a joke to confuse paps at the airport. He apparently told them he had swapped Frankie for her.

By Aug 2010 they firmly in love with rumours of moving in and engagement flying about. Mcfly's Harry, during an interview, said, "It's pretty much all true. I think they're the best looking couple on the planet these too."

AND IT'S ALL OVER.

In Nov 10 Frankie dumps Dougie AGAIN just after Rochelle and JLS's Marvin break up. Dougie voices his feelings soon after, "I was gutted about the breakup. It was totally unexpected and I really thought things were going well between us. It was bad timing just before Christmas too."

Apparently he didn't want a 'celeb relationship'. He bitterly added, "I didn't fit in with The Saturdays and JLS crowd and party scene anyway".

Sad times for Dougie.

Meanwhile Frankie is out on the town with her fellow Saturdays members in a bright red dress.

In Jan 11 Frankie seems to have moved on and is spotted out with footballer Wayne Bridge. Dougie meanwhile admits to the Mirror, "I don't think I'm over it yet. Something like that could take years. It's just time."

Then, this month, Dougie goes into rehab and we just want to give him a big hug.

We're sorry that their story ends so suddenly and so sadly. (Although, Dougie is now single if you're looking for a silver lining...)

Let's remember the good times...
