Freddie announced the news in a 13-minute clip where he clearly looked taken aback still. Although, he made a point of mentioning he learned this news over a week ago, but he was still processing.

While he was quick to point out that doesn’t mean they’ll never return at some point, he stressed how he didn’t want to give fans of the pair false hopes.
