Smiling through the heartache: Sugababe Heidi Range parties in Liverpool to forget about her recent split from Dave Berry

She may have been on a night out but Heidi Range didn”t look entirely happy as she partied on Boxing Day.

The 28-year-old Sugababe attended the festive party at new club PlayGround in her hometown of Liverpool but despite it being the festive season, she looked as though she was trying her best to smile.

Range announced her split from fianc Dave Berry earlier this month, and despite it being amicable, she”s obviously still hurting.

Wearing a black leather mini dress, the singer looked as though she had lost weight – which is no doubt due to her recent heartache.

She teamed the sexy garment with a thin pair of tights, platform stilettos and a blue quilted Chanel handbag.

Range was obviously pleased to be back up north for Christmas to be close to her family, and was also excited about her night at PlayGround.

“Girls night out tonight. Happy boxing night all! x” she tweeted earlier in the evening.

The last few months must have been especially hard for the blonde star as her and Berry had planned to marry this Winter.

However, the pair actually parted ways back in Autumn but just didn”t announce the news until December 10.

Taking to her Twitter page, the pop star told her followers: “Very sadly, after eight years together, myself and Dave decided to separate a few months ago. I wish him nothing but the best in life x”

No doubt Range had a fun night at the Liverpudlian club as she had plenty of guests to keep her entertained.

Also on the guest list was X Factor runner up Marcus Collins, former contestant on the show Rebecca Ferguson, the cast of Desperate Scousewives and WAG Alex Gerrard.

But Range won”t be spending too much longer in Liverpool as she prepares for her stint on ITV”s Dancing on Ice.

The skating contest, which begins on January 8, will see Range battle it out against other famous faces to win the reality show.

However, this hasn”t been an easy ride for the singer either as last week it was announced that her professional partner, Sylvain Longchambon, had been forced to pull out of the show due to an injury.

Range will be partnered with another professional but ITV are yet to announce who that will be.
