One of New York’s most famous gay couples has split up.

Silo and Roy two male chinstrap penguins have been living together as husband and husband for the past six years.

Since their relationship began, the pair have successfully hatched and raised an adopted chick, after they tried to incubate a rock.

They also inspired six other gay penguin couples at New York’s Central Park Zoo.

However, when Scrappy, a single female arrived from Sea World Zoo in San Diego, Silo’s eye went wondering and he moved out of his and Roy’s nest and moved in with Scrappy.
