Binky Felstead and Josh Patterson have split.
Binky took to Instagram this afternoon to confirm the news and release an official statement from the pair.
It begins, "With a heavy heart we have to tell you that we have decided to separate as a couple."
She cites the reason as both being on "very different paths at the moment." Binky continues, "There are no secrets and no one has been hurt in any way."
Binky and Josh first met on Made in Chelsea in 2015 and have been on and off since then.
They welcomed their daughter India in June last year.

Binky mentioned in the statement that she had been struggling in the relationship for a while saying, "we have been going through this privately... we are now in a good place."
A source revealed to The Sun, Binky and Josh "felt under pressure to stay together for India but after months of trying have realised it’s better for everyone if they separate."
The source went on, "Josh absolutely loves being a father to India and runs a number of his own businesses which keep him busy and Binky has a lot of separate commitments too."
"Binky supported Josh as he completed the Berlin marathon this weekend in a wheelchair – the pair definitely will continue to enjoy each other’s company as a family but are just no longer romantically involved."
