Miss Piggy and Kermit in happier times

Kerpig (as the tabloid press has never called them) is no more. Muppets Miss Piggy and Kermit have ended their tempestuous relationship just weeks before a new series of The Muppets is due to air in the States.

Here’s how Kermit took to Twitter to announce the split:

However, Buzz suspects this may be a cunning piece of engineered marketing. Call us cynical, but hey! Y’see, the new Muppets series on ABC isn’t like the old show. It’s described as “more adult” and will use a documentary-style approach, moving beyond the theatre setting to explore the personal lives of the Muppet stars. So a recently split-up frog and pig feels just a little bit too much like “scripted reality” to us. Plus it’s great publicity.

Hey, we know it’s all for the cameras. We know they still love each other. Kerpig forever! (Sob)

The Muppets will air in the UK on Sky 1.
