‘But the relationship ran its course and they decided they would be better off apart.

‘Like many couples, lockdown was quite tough for them, so they have had time to really think about what they want their future to look like.

‘They will always treasure the time they had together and have many happy memories.

‘Now they are concentrating on co-parenting their daughter and their separate careers.’

MailOnline has contacted Billie’s representatives for a comment. 

Former Doctor Who star Billie was previously married to DJ Chris Evans, who is 17 years her senior, and actor-turned-political activist Laurence Fox, 45, with whom she has two sons.

Billie and Johnny welcomed their daughter Tallulah in January 2019. 

It was confirmed in July 2018 that Billie was expecting her first child with rocker Johnny.

A source told the Mirror at the time: ‘Billie and Johnny are delighted. They can’t wait to welcome the new addition to their family.’

The British actress has been dating Johnny, who is the front man of rock band Tribes, for almost eight years.

Billie’s Instagram posts have been wiped clean since before September, 2022- just months before the reported break up. 

None of the star’s posts since have includes Johnny and it has been heavily surrounded by her very successful career. 

Billie’s relationship with Johnny cames after her divorce from husband Laurence, which was finalised in November 2017.

The pair met when they performed together in the stage play Treats in 2006, and deemed it ‘love at first sight’.

They married on New Year’s Eve in West Sussex the following year, and went on to welcome their two sons in 2008 and 2012.

However, the acting couple confirmed they were splitting in March 2016, and they were granted a decree-nisi late last year.

Billie was previously married to radio host Chris Evans, who she wed secretly back in 2001 at the age of 18, sparking controversy due to their sixteen-year age gap.

The couple divorced three years later in 2004, but have remained close friends ever since – with Chris’ new wife Natasha Shishmanian currently expecting twins.

Prior to her first marriage, Piper also dated EastEnders star Danny Dyer, having split from popstar Richie Neville.

As one of Doctor Who’s most famous assistants, fans also went wild when unconfirmed reports suggested Piper and Doctor Who lead, Matt Smith, went on a date in 2006.
