Love Island’s reigning champions Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies stunned everyone by announcing they’d broken up last night.
Now two more Love Island couples have followed in their footsteps, confirming today that they’ve ended their relationships.
THREE in one week?! What’s going on?!
The two couples to have parted ways in the wake of Kem and Amber’s split are Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas, and Rachel Fenton and Rykard Jenkins.
Both couples found love in series two of the show last year.
Kady and Scott finished in third place, while Rykard quit the show to be with Rachel after she was sent home early in the process.
Kady and Scott first ended things back in June following a massive row, but were then reported to have got back together, though were taking things slowly.
In an interview at the end of October, Kady told new! that the pair were on a break and hadn’t seen each other in a month, but insisted she couldn’t see herself with anyone else.
She blamed the pressures of life post-villa for contributing to their problems.
“After Love Island, I moved in with Scott straight away,” she said. “We were constantly with each other, which can be a bit too much.”
A source told The Sun that although the pair did try to make things work, ultimately it wasn’t meant to be, with the insider saying: “Their relationship was really fiery and they couldn’t stop arguing – they just weren’t getting on at all.
“They’re both really sad to split and obviously the timing makes it worse with it being the run-up to Christmas.”
Reps for the couple also reportedly confirmed the split to the newspaper… but bizarrely, Kady seemed to rubbish reports of a break-up when she responded to one such story by tweeting: “Have we?”
Meanwhile, Rachel and Rykard’s split was confirmed via Twitter.
Rachel broke the news by tweeting: “Rykard and I are no longer together, we have decided to go our separate ways but I wish him all the best with his future.”
Rykard, meanwhile, told fans: “We broke up about a week ago. She didn’t want to go public I’ve just been doing me & frankly I don’t have to answer to anyone.”
This year’s Love Island winners Kem and Amber announced on Sunday night they’d split just four months after triumphing on the show.
In a statement, they said: “With sadness, we’ve decided to separate. We fell in love in the villa and want to thank all the fans of the show for supporting us.
“Our schedules made it difficult. We’ll remain good friends.”
Kem later broke his silence on the separation by sharing a photo to Instagram showing himself cuddling up to his mum.
He captioned it: “Happy birthday to my rock @figencetiney, don’t know what I’d do without you xxx Family is everything.”
Amber, meanwhile, tweeted: “Would just like to say I am incredibly overwhelmed by everyone’s lovely messages and comments. The love and support from you all has been absolutely heartwarming. Thank you so much.”
