Love Island stars Gemma Owen and Luca Bish became the latest contestants to call time on their relationship – just three months after they made things official.

Following hot on the heels of Paige and Adam, who split up last month, the finalists announced they are no longer together after a brief romance outside of the island.

Since leaving the Majorcan villa, the couple’s romance appeared to go from strength to strength, having met each other’s families, gone on holiday together and even done the big food shop.

Luca even popped the question, so to speak, by leading Gemma through a corridor adorned with red roses, candles, red balloons and rose petals to a swimming pool in which the words “be my girlfriend” floated.

The pair had been in a long-distance relationship and instead decided to split their time between the Owen family mansion in Cheshire and Brighton, where Luca lives, as well as London for work commitments.

But on Wednesday, the dressage rider revealed the duo had decided to call it quits on her Instagram Stories, saying it ‘wasn’t an easy decision.’

She wrote: “To all my followers. I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship.

“It wasn’t an easy decision but this ultimately is what is best for us both right now.

“Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as we start new chapters. Love always. Gem x.”

Luca has also commented on the break-up on an Instagram Story, writing: “Switched my phone back on after taking some time out to clear my head after an emotional afternoon to thousands of messages and news articles about my breakup.

“I would have liked some time to process this privately but as you all now know sadly Gemma and I made the mutual decision earlier today to go our separate ways.

“We have been on such a journey together and have made some amazing memories which I will treasure.

“I can’t thank everyone enough for their support for us as a couple during and after Love Island.

“We will remain good friends and I wish nothing but the best for her.”
