In news that shocked their almost 1.5m-stong online following, Charles and Alli Trippy have decided to separate.

The couple, who have over 3m subscribers between them and over 525m views on their joint vlogs alone, announced the news on their joint CTFXc channel yesterday with a video that did not feature Alli.

Charles, who has suffered over the last two years with brain cancer and seizures, explained how the couple have "not been getting along over the last few months." He went on to apologise to their fans and assure them that they would attempt to remain friends.

Alli has remained silent on the subject, except for tweeting "Sorry, guys :(" on April 8th, a day before the announcement went live.

Charles intends to continue the daily vlogging channel alone while Alli will return to her beauty channel with almost half a million subscribers.

The couple met online and lived out their romance on YouTube, posting videos every day for over five years. Some of their most viewed videos include their proposal and wedding videos, with 4m and 3m views respectively.

They received worldwide attention when Charles was diagnosed with cancer and they continued to make daily vlogs throughout his surgery and treatment.

Charles is a bassist for the band 'We The Kings' and the couple often vlogged separately while Charles was on tour. Recently, Charles suffered a seizure during a concert but the concert continued.

They have been married for just over two years, share three dogs and 1.5m YouTube subscribers on the CTFXc channel.
