Love Island couple Gemma Owen and Luca Bish have confirmed they have split up.

The pair got together on the ITV reality show this year and came second to winners Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti.

But they have called time on their relationship just a few months later, with Owen saying it “wasn’t an easy decision”.

The 19-year-old reality star – who is the daughter of footballer Michael Owen – said on her Instagram Story: “I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship.

"It wasn't an easy decision but ultimately this 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."

Bish, 23, also addressed the split on Instagram.

“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," he wrote.

“I would have liked some time to process this privately but as you all already 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."
