The comedian couple - who've both hinted they might get back together - originally met when he was a featured panelist on her E! talk show Chelsea Lately between 2009-2011.

The New Jersey-born 47-year-old announced the break-up by bizarrely posting a video the pair pre-taped on June 6 celebrating their first anniversary.

'It is with a heavy heart to announce that we have decided together that it is best for us to take a break from our relationship right now,' Chelsea - who boasts 13.6M social media followers - wrote.

'I know many of you were invested in our love, and I wanted to express to you how much that meant to both of us. How much it still means. And how much I now believe in love for each one of us.
