TV presenter Reshmin Chowdhury has announced she’s broken up with “toxic lover” Tottenham.
Sympathy and advice poured in from fans when the glamorous BBC and BT Sport broadcaster decided “the relationship isn’t working” following Spurs’ Champions League exit.
Rueful Reshmin untied the Tott after Antonio Conte‘s men made little effort to impress her in Wednesday’s 0-0 home stalemate with AC Milan.
Shakespeare would surely have argued: “Better to have loved and drawn than never to have loved at all.”
But the result sent Harry Kane and Co crashing out at the last-16 stage 1-0 on aggregate.
Londoner Reshmin, 45, even revealed she had briefly dumped Spurs over the weekend when they lost 1-0 in the Premier League at Wolves.
But early in Wednesday’s woeful display she posted optimistically from the stands: “Tottenham – the toxic lover I took a break from last Saturday.
“I needed space. But he’s already pulled me back in. Can he keep me after tonight?”
However, after seeing her hopes of being charmed back wither and die, she wrote: “Spurs and I are taking an extended break.
“This relationship isn’t working. Nothing is working. At least your comments kept me entertained! Thank you and goodnight.”

One fed-up fan responded: “I think I’ll join you too. Spurs are hazardous to your health.”
Another added: “I’ve had to go for a drink on my own to calm down. I know we don’t win stuff but not giving it a go is unacceptable in my book.”
A third moaned: “It’s so depressing watching us at the moment.”
But a few supporters reckon Reshmin still has the hots for the Totts.
One wrote: “Extended break…until the weekend?”
And if she does keep a fire burning for Tottenham, some supporters suggested she should look on the bright side.
One fan said: “Try supporting a team that is not 4th or in the Champions League. It’s not the end of the world. There’s still football on a weekend/Monday.”
But if Reshmin does try to go cold turkey, another supporter had a helpful tip.
They suggested: “If there’s ever a Spurs game on TV find a movie that’s 90-95 minutes. My go-to will be American Pie, more entertaining and will have a better time.”
