‘So with that in mind, it is with a heavy heart we have to tell you that we have decided to separate as a couple.

‘We are still a family and India is, and will always be the absolute light of our lives.’

The mum continued to explain that while the two still ‘adore’ each other, they are at different ‘paths’ in their lives but will continue to be good friends.

‘However we have realised we are on very different paths at the moment, although we still adore each other, we need to give each other the space to grow’, she added.

‘There are no secrets and no one has been hurt in any way, we now more forward with love, friendship and a deep respect for one another and the family we are 110% committed too.

‘We have been going through this privately for a while and we are now in a good place. We won’t be commenting on this further. Lots of love, Josh & Binky xxx’

The sad news comes just over a year after the Made in Chelsea stars welcomed their first child, baby India.

The two started dating at the end of 2015, while still on the show. They split up for the first time around a year later, with Binky saying on the Lorraine show in August 2016: ‘JP told me to move on and there’s only so long a girl can wait.’

The two got back together at the beginning of 2017, a few weeks after Binky announced she was expecting a baby with JP.
