Love Is Dead: The Wiggles' Emma And Lachy Split

"When you mix yellow and purple you get brown, so I suppose we should have seen it coming."

It is with deep sadness and regret that we inform you that love and hope died today, with the announcement that Emma and Lachy from The Wiggles are separating.

After two years of marriage, the purple and yellow Wiggles have called it quits, and released the following statement on Instagram:

"We have, and continue to share, the most beautiful life together, but we wanted to let you know that privately for the last six months we have been navigating through a trial separation, and we have made the decision to separate as a couple.

"Throughout that period, we have performed hundreds of shows together and that is always a continued source of joy for us both.

"We have embraced this as a very positive change in our relationship. Our incredible friendship has been strengthened throughout this time and what we have discovered is that, more than ever, first and foremost we love and adore performing as Emma and Lachy in The Wiggles and having the privilege of celebrating this happiness with extraordinary families around the world.

"We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever and we can’t wait to see you at a show soon. We will not be commenting beyond this, and we thank you in advance for respecting our privacy.”

Of course, we're all heartbroken by the news, and Twitter is awash with an outpouring of sadness as people process their grief.

Honestly, same.
