Former sweetheart (3,5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

old flame

'former sweetheart' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for old flame that I've seen before include "still 1 across [ALIGHT], it seems" , "Someone once loved" , "Ex-lover - the fire still burns" , "Ex" , "Former partner" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, the Newsday.com, the L.A. Times Daily and the Universal.
