This week seems to be the day of break ups. One Direction heartthrob Zayne Malik announced his split from his Little Mix finance Perrie Edwards and the classic duo Kermit and Miss Piggy are said to be separating as well. In a truly modern twist on the old classics, Kermit and Miss Piggy broke news of their uncoupling in joint statements on Facebook. The news has allegedly come after “thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling” and the couple have stressed how difficult this had been on them individually and as a couple.
Miss Piggy’s coy behaviour regarding the couple’s split is in complete contrast to Kermit, who wanted to make clear that he initiated the break up. Although this may have marginally rescued his pride, it is hard not to feel empathy for the heart-broken Miss Piggy after this tragic news. The break up has come just before ABC prepare to launch a new The Muppets show. The revival show will depict a mocking perspective of Miss Piggy’s late night show behind-the-scenes. Kermit will act as Executive Producer of Miss Piggy’s talk show, which will feature guests such as Reese Witherspoon.
