Danica Taylor and Jamie Allen have reportedly become the first couple from the 2022 series of ‘Love Island’ to split.

The pair are said to have broken up after Danica, 21, was pictured kissing TOWIE’s Roman Hackett, 20, on Saturday (27.08.22) even though she was in a relationship with 27-year-old footballer Jamie.

A source told MailOnline on Wednesday (31.08.22): “Danica and Jamie have gone their separate ways.

“They were yet to make their relationship official but have decided that they didn't quite work together romantically.

“Jamie has just signed for a new football team and Danica is busy pursuing endless opportunities after leaving the 'Love Island' villa and they sadly drifted apart.

“They’re good friends still and will continue to support each other in everything they do.”

A source close to Danica added to MailOnline Danica and Roman are now “just friends” and there is nothing romantic between them.

Dancer Danica struggled to find love on the ITV2 dating series but got together with Jamie during the final weeks and they only narrowly missed making it to the final.

But she was seen kissing Roman, appearing in the current series of ‘The Only Way is Essex’, on Saturday morning after he dropped her off at a train station.

The former couple are yet to comment publicly on their apparent split, with MailOnline noting they have not posted about each other on Instagram from the start of this month.

Their few images together include a photoshoot for OK! magazine and a still from their ‘Love Island’ exit marked: “Goodbye Jamie and Danica!”, on the footballer’s Instagram feed.

When they left ‘Love Island’, Danica said the “salon” – code used by this year’s cast for intimate acts – was “fully open” to Jamie.

The footballer this week used Instagram to announce he has signed with AFC Telford United, while Danica has kept busy attending celebrity events in London and promoted brands online including Pretty Little Thing.

She built a ‘Love Island’ fanbase due to her resilience in finding a partner after she was rejected by Luca Bish, Jay Younger, and Billy Brown.

Danica - who posts various modelling shots on her Instagram feed - was seen having a meltdown in one episode after Billy failed to pick her during a game of ‘Marry, Snog or Pie’, despite them being in a couple.

She cried: “Once again I am back in the same situation, and I don’t want to get upset but I’m literally sick of it because I’m like what? Why?

“Why don’t I deserve that? I don’t understand. Not one person genuinely wants to get to know me romantically. I just don’t understand.”
