Susanna Reid has split from Dominic Cotton.
The 'BBC Breakfast' host and former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant's relationship has come to an end, with Dominic posting a profile on a dating website and listing himself as "currently separated".
Dominic - who has three children, Sam, 11, Finn, nine, and Jack, eight - with Susanna lists his occupation as executive/management and claims his best feature is his "bum".
His profile states: "Underneath my blokeish exterior I am a sensitive soul. I enjoy sharing things and am someone who doesn't shy away from commitment. Life is for living with someone special."
Susanna's punishing schedule - which sees her undertake a 415-mile round trip from London to Salford to present 'BBC Breakfast' three times a week - is unlikely to have helped their relationship, and her current involvement in the 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour could have put even more strain on the couple.
After 'Strictly' finished in December, Dominic admitted Susanna's schedule had been "tough" and "really full on" for them both, adding he was "looking forward to having his partner back."
Just last year Susanna, 43, talked about her strong bond with Dominic, but said marriage wasn't important to her.
She told the Daily Express newspaper: "People get confused - they think maybe I'm not attached because I don't wear a ring. But it's quite common now for couples not to be married, and it works for us.
"I was a commitment-phobe until I met Dominic. But he's taught me a lot. He's very supportive and accepts why I don't want to get married. I had a choppy childhood after my parents divorced, and I want us to do it our way.
"The commitment and wanting a family unit for the children is our priority."
