Maura Higgins & Chris Taylor split up
It's all over for Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor.
They announced the news in lengthy statements on Instagram Stories today.
She began, 'It breaks my heart to even type this.'
'But I wanted to let everyone know that myself and Chris have made the joint decision to end our relationship.'
'There is no wrong doing on either side...' Maura insisted.
'We still love, care & respect each other deeply.'
'From the minute we met each other we've been very close friends and that will never change.'
'There is no regret. Life is about taking chances.' Maura continued.
'We wanted to make this work but we realised we work better being friends.'
'Whilst I appreciate people may speculate or create false stories, this is the truth.'
'I wish Chris nothing but the best and I will always be one of his biggest supporters X'

He went on to say they are both still on, 'very good terms,' and insisted this was a, 'mutual decision.'
