A rep for Elliott has confirmed: "They have split - they're taking a break." The spokesman added that the couple want to keep things amicable for the sake of their children, who are from previous relationships.

Chloe, meanwhile, has remained tight-lipped about the split.

Last night, Elliott was photographed enjoying a quiet dinner with his sister Leah, who starred in the last series of TOWIE.

The siblings were snapped at Japanese restaurant Sushi City and Leah was no doubt offering her brother some invaluable sisterly advice.

Commenting on the picture, which was uploaded to Instagram, Elliott told his followers: "Nice catch up with my sis @missleahewright #SushiCity."

Chloe and Elliott began dating at the beginning of the summer, confirming their romance during the TOWIE Marbella special.

Things appeared to be going well for the couple, and there were even rumours of an impending engagement, however it seems things have hit the skids.

TOWIE returned to our screens with a two-part Ibiza special last week and, although Chloe and Elliott appeared happy enough, tensions were simmering below the surface.

Elliott was unhappy about Mario Falcone's return to the scene, as he'd had a short fling with Chloe earlier this year, but they were shown clearing the air in Sunday night's show.

It has since been confirmed that Elliott and Chloe's shock split was nothing to do with Mario.
