Their love split was confirmed by Florence in a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar.

Confirming that she and Zach had gone their separate ways earlier this year, Florence said: "We've been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it's been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on.
"We just felt something like this would really do us the benefit of not having millions of people telling us how happy they are that we're not together.
"So we've done that. I automatically get a lumpy throat when I talk about it."
Florence failed to reveal exactly when she and Zach broke up, however they were still together in April when she wished him a happy 47th birthday on Instagram.
To celebrate the day, the actress posted several photos of the TV and film actor with their pet pooch Billie to her stories, followed by a message which simply read: "Happy Birthday Zachary."
Florence previously discussed the cruel messages she received by trolls after wishing Zachary a happy 46th birthday last year.
Speaking candidly to The Sunday Times she said: "I think it bugs people that it's not who they expected. But it's my life and I'm not doing anything to please people or to make it a better headline or story. I want to also be a person!"
Before the announcement of their split, the former couple were working on the film A Good Person together, which is directed by Zachary.
The former Scrubs actor appeared happy to work alongside the Little Women actress and openly praised her acting skills.
Talking openly to Collider, he said: "Florence Pugh's performance in the movie, I know I'm biased, but it's the most miraculous thing you will ever see."
He added: "It's her going toe-to-toe with Morgan Freeman. You haven't seen Morgan like this in years.
"I know that anything Florence does is incredible. People say she's maybe the best actress of her generation. I think she's one of the best actresses working."
