Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh separate

Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh have split up.

The 'Lullaby' hitmaker and the former 'Made In Chelsea' star have confirmed they have ended their relationship after less than two and a half years of marriage.

In a joint statement given to the Daily Mirror, they said: "It is with sadness and regret that we confirm our separation.

"It is a mutual decision, we still care deeply about each other and would like it to be known that it is on amicable terms and we wish each other well."

A source added of the pair: "It's extremely sad that Millie and Stephen have decided to part ways, but they have managed to remain on the best of terms throughout their split and they are hopeful they will continue to do so."

The news comes only weeks after Professor Green admitted he had only seen his wife once since the beginning of the year.

He admitted: "I've only seen Millie once this year ... It was the first time I had seen her properly in 30 days. We had seen each other like ships in the night, but we weren't getting any quality time together.

"It is good sometimes to have space, but it is also difficult when you miss someone for that long."
