JP posted the same statement on his own Instagram page.

The couple met and fell for each other on Made In Chelsea but had a pretty rocky romance.

They had split when Binky discovered that she was pregnant, though reunited shortly before India’s arrival in June 2017.

Following their daughter’s birth Binky and JP spoke of how she had brought them closer together.

‘Having India has cemented us,’ JP told Hello! magazine. ‘Even more than we were before.’

News of their surprise break-up comes shortly after Binky was seen supporting JP on Sunday after he completed the Berlin Marathon.

The couple were seen emotionally embracing whilst India slept in her buggy.

Fans have sent messages of support following news of Binky and JP’s break-up, with one commenting on Instagram: ‘Oh Binky. Brave post but you must be in pain. Thinking of you all’

‘Well your newest post has made me bawl … wishing you all the happiness in the world,’ another wrote.
