Jim echoed Tanya's words within his own Instagram statement, writing: "After twelve incredible years, Tan and I have decided to go our separate ways.

It's unclear when the pair decided to split, although they haven't posted any pictures of one another on social media for a while.

The last on Tanya's Instagram feed is of them together with their sausage dog at Christmas.

Tanya and Jim met during sixth form at school in their hometown of Norwich. It is believed that the pair share a £4 million net worth, after using Youtube as a spring board into successful careers.

Tanya has dabbled in acting, launched numerous beauty lines and appeared on the cover of glossy magazines. She recently made the move to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, although Jim stayed in the UK.

Meanwhile Jim is now an editor for GQ magazine, has authored his own book and is writing his first screenplay.

The pair have a number of Youtube friends, and are close to the likes of Zoella and Joe Sugg.
