As if this week on Neighbours hasn't been heartbreaking enough, now Tyler (Travis Burns) and Piper (Mavournee Hazel) have split up. It's a devastating development in what has been a tumultuous but epic romance.
Mavournee took to Instagram to write about her wonderful time by Travis' side.
"We have both grown so much over this time, and I feel lucky to say that Travis helped shape who i am, and it's sad but exciting to learn to grow without him by my side," she wrote.

While we get our heads around the fact Typer are no longer together, grab a box of tissues as we look back over their most memorable moments.

Piper kisses Tyler (2016)

They had become best friends and realised they understood each other like no one else. Piper was the first to realise there was something more between them and went in for a kiss. Tyler was taken aback by the smooch but soon woke up to his romantic feelings for Piper. However, Tyler was living with Piper's dad Brad (Kip Gamblin) at the time and worried that the age gap was inappropriate.

Their relationship escalated to the point where Tyler could no longer deny his feelings for Piper. But being the gentleman he is he only agreed to be with her if both Brad and Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) were okay with it. Terese says absolutely not but when Brad says he is happy to discuss it Piper twists this to her advantage. She tells Tyler Brad is fine with their relationship and she will work on Terese coming around. So they begin dating until Tyler finds out Piper lied to him about her parents.
