MANILA -- Celebrity couple Miho Nishida and Tommy Esguerra have decided to split up, Star Magic announced on Thursday. 

The talent firm, which handles the career of the two, said the couple, who have been together for more than a year, ended their relationship, but did not give the reason for the breakup. 

"Both parties remain friends but have agreed to spend time apart. Miho and Tommy ask for your continuous support for their individual careers. Thank you," the statement read. 

Former contestants of "Pinoy Big Brother," Nishida and Esguerra met during their reality show stint. Their pairing, dubbed "ToMiho," spawned a following for their sweet on-cam moments. 

They officially became a couple in December 2015 when Esguerra asked Nishida to be his girlfriend on an episode of "It's Showtime." 

He said at the time: "Miho, maski sandali pa lang tayong magkasama, pakiramdam ko habangbuhay na kitang kilala. Ikaw ang nagpapaganda ng araw ko. Dahil sa iyo, nababaliw ako....Napakahalaga mo sa akin at hindi kita pababayaan Miho." 

Esguerra even introduced Nishida to his family in California in January last year. 

The two were recently featured in "Langit Lupa," the daytime series set to be replaced by Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson's "Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin" starting Monday.
