As far as YouTube couples go, Jamie and Nikki Perkins, who vlogged everything from their proposal story to pregnancy announcements, were up there with the greats – but today the couple announced that they’re parting ways.

Both Jamie and Nikki posted separate statements on their Instagram stories, along with a text-only video on their shared YouTube channel (which at the time of writing has 1,857,462 subscribers).

On her Instagram Story, Nikki (who uses the handle @JamieAndNiks) thanked those who had reached out with love and support, and confirmed the “painful decision” to split.

The post said: "To everyone who has reached out and expressed love and concern over the past month, we would like to say thank you. Your constant support over the years has meant so much. This has been an extremely difficult time for our family, hence why we have remained silent”.

It continued on to say, "Jamie and I have made the painful decision to separate and would like to thank you in advance for respecting our privacy. We would both like to clarify that the rumours surrounding our separation are false”.

The couple share two daughters, Ava and Zoe, the youngest of which is around a year and a half old.



The couple, who married six years ago, had been a little quiet on social media over the last few weeks, meaning some fans already had their suspicions that a split might be on the cards.

With one tweeting “I knew it was coming but like a dummy I hoped Jamie and Nikki had another reason they weren't vlogging.”

Others, said they were totally “blindsided” by the separation news:

The announcement on Jamie and Nikki's shared YouTube channel came in the form of a 30-second video entitled ‘What’s Going On With Us’ which merely showed a statement explaining they’d decided to split, thanking fans for their support and asking for privacy. Comments underneath the upload have been disabled.
