Dido Splits From On-Off Beau

British chart star DIDO has ended her relationship with on-off boyfriend, music boss FERDIE UNGER-HAMILTON - because she's too busy to date.

The singer, who started seeing Ferdie after splitting from longterm beau BOB PAGE last year (02), has told friends the pressure of life in the limelight has wrecked her chances of romance - as she promotes her new album LIFE FOR RENT.

A pal says, "Dido and Ferdie were hardly seeing each other any more.

"She has been travelling constantly and promoting Life For Rent in the past few weeks. It was just impossible for their relationship.

"Ferdie was spending more time with her at the airport than at home. So they've split but have promised to stay friends.

"It's sad but she's trying not to let it get her down."

Dido hinted the relationship was on the rocks, while promoting new album Life For Rent in September (03).

She said then, "It does bother me that having a relationship in the limelight can really f*** things up."

Meanwhile, the singer is still keeping a vigil at the hospital bedside of her father WILLIAM ARMSTRONG, who is being treated for a brain disease in London. Latest reports reveal he is making a strong recovery.
