Just when you thought it was safe to pop the Kleenex back in the cupboard after a rocky year in Hollywood romances, news of the Channing and Jenna split has us wondering if love is even real. 

We've cracked a pint of Ben and Jerry's, put on 'The Notebook' and rounded up the most surprising Hollywood break ups from the past year. Which had you surprised?

1. Anna Faris and Chris Pratt. The funny-in-love duo married in 2009 and split in August 2017. You'll know Anna Faris from the 'Scary Movie' franchises and her role on the US television show 'Mom'. Chris Pratt is most known for playing Andy Dwyer on 'Parks and Recreation' and his role in the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' franchise. Since their split, Anna Faris has said that cultivating the perfect family image had a lot to do with the demise of their union. Marriages are definitely tougher in the spotlight!

2. Josh Duhamel and Fergie were married for 8 years before splitting in September 2017. The split coincided with the resurgence of Fergie's solo career and the production of her second solo album, 'Double Dutchess'. Whatever the reason for their split - the pair seem to nail the post-separation co-parenting gig just fine...

3. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. If you're a fan of 'Friends', you'll be invested in the romance journey of unlucky-in-love Jen Aniston. Her split from Brad Pitt defined how many women saw themselves in relationships with infidelity. Are you team Jen or team Angelina? If you're team Jen, you were pumped to see her find happiness with actor Justin Theroux in 2011. Unfortunately the happiness hasn't lasted for the pair, announcing their split in February this year.

4. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. This may be the most surprising celebrity break up of all. Why? These two fit-bod entertainers have nothing but love and mush to say about each other in interviews, as recently as 2 weeks prior to their separation. The couple, married for nine years, have a daughter and strong family bond. We're devastated to see them split - but quietly, all around the world, 'Magic Mike' fans are doing a little dance...
