And another one bites the dust! The celebrity couples just keep on falling and this time it’s Australian actress Naomi Watts and her partner of 11 years Liev Schreiber that have called it a day. The pair have been together since 2005 and share two sons but never made it down the aisle.

In a joint statement released by the two, they said: "Over the past few months, we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple.

"It is with great love, respect and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship."
