At the time of their split, they released a shared statement to their individual Instagram accounts.
It read: “Hi everyone. As our fans and loyal supporters, you are really important to us, and so we wanted to let you know some news.
“After 11 years, we have made the mutual decision to separate. We will always love each other, just in a different way as friends.
“This will never change what a great team we make, and we are really proud of everything we have achieved together.”
“I’m still friends with Neil and we still dance together. We take it lightly.
“We have such a good relationship that we can do that and we still support each other in whatever we do.”
Strictly Come Dancing will next Saturday on BBC One at 7.50pm.
