Strictly Come Dancing star Katya Jones and her husband Neil Jones have revealed they're splitting today after 11 years together – with just a week to go before the series launches.
The professional duo announced their split in an official Instagram statement, insisting they will always love each other "as friends".
But the signs that all was not well have secretly been there for months.
Just two weeks ago, Neil and Katya arrived separately to the first Strictly professionals rehearsal and were seen not speaking to each other outside the studio.
Despite the fact it was on the day of their sixth wedding anniversary, the married couple didn't seem too happy to be sharing the same space as they waited for their fellow pros to arrive.
Neil was papped walking along the street alone, texting busily on his phone, and he was still engrossed in his device when he got to the studio.
Similarly, Katya didn't seem willing to engage in conversation as she stared into the middle distance on the doorstep of the venue, and the pair remained next to each other but not talking for a short while.
Notably, he wasn't wearing his wedding ring on his left hand – but her band was still there.
Their sullen silence was in stark contrast to their respective gushing anniversary tributes.
Katya had shared one earlier in the day, posting a picture of them dancing together and captioning it: "6 years @mr_njonesofficial #weddinganniversary #wedding #anniversary ."
