Want to end your relationship but don't have the guts? You can now pay a company to do it for you - either with a text message or a hamper full of snakes.

Sorry It's Over will help you "break up with your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband or mistress" for as little as €3.87.

Set up by Australian nurse Kristy Mazins, the company offers a range of ways to tell your partner that you would rather they weren't around anymore.

For A$5.50, Sorry It's Over will send your other-half a text message or email that reads: "We have not been seeing eye-to-eye. I feel we are too different. It is me not you. There is no chemistry anymore. Hope you will be OK. We can still be friends."

Alternatively, you can choose: "How dare you treat me like this! It is over and I could not be happier. I deserve better than you. You will never find anyone as good as me."

If those aren't to your liking, you can write your own, personalised message that the company will send for you.

A phone call will set you back A$12, while a posted letter costs A$13.50.

If you prefer something a bit less heartless than dropping a new message in your wife's inbox, the firm will send flowers for A$77 or a "sympathy hamper" for A$90. The hamper can contain a bottle of wine, chocolates, tissues, peanuts or snakes - jelly ones, I hope.

A "personal meeting with our representative" costs A$66.

The website, which features slogans such as "the heart was meant to be broken" and "don’t cry because it’s over… smile because it happened", offers to "sort out out your relationship for you".

"It’s never easy to separate, so let us do your dirty work. Why bother telling your lover goodbye yourself. Who needs the grief and who has the time?" the site states.

"It’s tiresome when you have had enough of your partner. You have to make up some reason why don’t want to be with them any more. Then you have to decide how to deliver the news.

"Why look them in the eye and watch the hurt? No one wants to deal with all that screaming, sobbing, begging and emotional pleas of ‘just one more chance’."
