Writing to her 3 million followers, Tanya explained: "Just wanted to let you all know that a few weeks ago Jim and I made the painful decision to no longer be together. We have a huge amount of love and respect for each other and will continue to remain friends forever.

"Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy at this difficult time."

The 29-year-old's decision to announce the end of the relationship was then reciprocated by Jim, who wrote his own statement via social media.

"After twelve incredible years, Tan and I have decided to go our separate ways," he stated. "We're still absolutely the best of friends and have nothing but love and respect for each other.

"We will continue to support one another in all of our ventures and are both looking forward to what the future holds."

The vloggers' break-up seems to have emotionally shattered their fanbase, with a number of followers responding with disbelieving messages.

"I'm so sad about the news. I wish you both the best," one user replied, whilst another wrote: "I'm honestly so shook. This news doesn't seem real."
