Kevin and Karen Clifton have confirmed they've split after three years of marriage.
The "Strictly Come Dancing" professionals, both 35, may have called time on their relationship, but the pair have vowed to remain close friends and continue to work together, with their touring show the "Kevin & Karen Show" still going ahead this May.
Kevin told Chris Evans on his BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show: "We just wanted to let everyone know that privately we are not together anymore but professionally we are stronger than ever before. Dance is how we came together and is the glue that has held us together for years now. We've danced on Broadway, the West End, we have five "Strictly" finals between us.
"We're still the best of friends - we've got a lot of love and respect for each other. I still see Karen pretty much every day ... we're always throwing ideas around and putting things together creatively.
"What we've found is that since we've been honest with each other about our relationship, we've unlocked this new wealth of creativity and we're taking our professional relationship to the next level now."
Karen added about their forthcoming shows: "We have such great chemistry and for us it's all about the storytelling and giving the best performance and entertaining and inspiring.
"At the end of the day it's about giving back to our fans and we love dancing together so much. We're feeling very positive and it's going to be one of the best tours."
It will no doubt come as a surprise to fans of the dancers, as Karen admitted in January whilst they do have their "ups and downs", they were "pushing" through.
She said at the time: "We're a regular couple, we've been together for seven years, and like any other relationship, you have ups and downs.
"We just need to keep pushing. Relationships take work. It's not as easy as you think, especially being in a job like "Strictly [Come Dancing]"."
