Emma, 17, Hogwarts beauty Hermione Granger – was last night said to be “distraught” over her break-up with strapping Tom Ducker.
A pal said: “She is very upset. He was her first love.”
The Sun revealed Emma and the up-and-coming Wasps star, 17, were an item after they began dating at the start of this year.
The romance went from strength to strength as she whisked him to the French Riviera for a holiday this summer.
The lovebirds were spotted hanging out in nightclubs and eating lobster with £90 bottles of champagne.
Last night a spokesman for the actress said the reason for the split was simply that the magic had gone from the relationship.
The aide said: “They just drifted apart as teenagers do. Emma is now just concentrating on her A-levels and the new film.”
But friends claimed she DUMPED the hunk after seeing pictures on a website of him with a string of teenagers at a party.
One said: “Emma was furious.” Sources close to the actress insisted the pair had already split when the photos were taken.
