Did you notify the council that you had moved out? Or did he apply for single occupancy reduction? Presumably you were both named on the tenancy agreement?
Have you had any letters from the council about this or just from a debt recovery agency?
How much are we talking about? Your best bet may be to contact the council, explain the situation and, if you have it, provide proof that you moved out on a particular date (ie rent agreement for different property, evidence of bills from new place etc).
