SCARLETT JOHANSSON: Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has ended her year-long romance with advertising executive Nate Naylor, UsMagazine.com said Monday.

The couple broke up within the last week, the celebrity news website said without giving a reason.

Chris Harrison will serve as host of "The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding."

The program will "let viewers in on all the exciting festivities -- from her dress fitting for her dazzling custom-made gown to Ashley and J.P. planning the big day with their wedding planner," ABC said in a news release. "Then it's on to their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the next stage of their romantic journey with a beautiful wedding ceremony in the perfect location. Past 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' couples, stars and participants [to be announced at a later date] will be on the guest list to help the couple celebrate, along with their families and friends."

The show stars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus as leaders of a small band of survivors on the run from flesh-eating zombies.
