James Middleton and Donna Air are still together

James Middleton and Donna Air are still a couple.

The 28-year-old heartthrob - who is the younger brother of Britain's Duchess Catherine - and his ex-TV presenter girlfriend have denied they have split in a joint statement.

The pair told HELLO! magazine: "Mark Twain once complained that reports of his death were exaggerated.

"A few days ago we were equally amazed to read the obituaries of our relationship in the national press.

"Happily, we can report that our relationship is NOT over. We are still very much a couple and have not parted ways."

TV star Donna, 36, also gushed about her two-year romance with James, revealing that he brings a lot of "fun" into her and daughter Freya's lives.

She told the Mail on Sunday's You magazine: "James brings a lot of fun into the household. Everyone makes a huge fuss of him because he's a man. It's a standing joke how much the girls adore him."

Earlier this week, it was reported James didn't see a future with his older girlfriend and had called time on the relationship.

A source said: "The split happened a couple of weeks ago and it was James' decision. Poor Donna. She's more than a little bit heartbroken.

"But he just didn't think it was going to go the distance."

The couple met in February 2013 at Robin Birley's private members' club in London.
