Miss Pigyy and Kermit

Now that the news has broken that our favourite celeb couple – Miss Piggy and Kermit – are going their separate ways, we thought we’d console ourselves in the fact that it’s not as bad as other celebs’ break-ups.

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles

This epic month-long relationship ended in a sour note when the stars got into what was called an ‘almighty argument’ during their visit to the British Virgin Islands. They’re probably never, ever, getting back together.

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow

This relationship gave us the infamous term ‘conscious uncoupling’. For that reason, it has warranted its place on this list.

Sean Penn and Madonna

A tale of alleged violence (his) and alleged infidelity (hers) led to an acrimonious break-up in 1986. The couple were said to have rekindled their fiery romance in 2009, but that didn’t last long either.

Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears

The two former Disney Mouseketeers were the king and queen of pop coming into the new millennium, but this power couple had to go their separate ways. The story was that Britney apparently started seeing their shared choreographer Wade Robson, which was too much to handle for old ‘trousersnake’ JT.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

More infidelity on the list, as poor old R Patz had his heart broken by Kristen. It’s fine now though, as he’s found love with his new flame FKA Twigs.
