Pregnant Laura Anderson has seemingly taken another swipe at her ex-boyfriend Gary Lucy during an Instagram Q&A.

The former Love Island star, 33, confirmed she had split from Lucy earlier this month after weeks of speculation.

The couple had been dating for five months.

Although the reality TV star didn’t go into detail, she insisted: “The truth always comes out.”

Anderson shared: “I don’t really want to get into this but there were loads of reasons... The truth always comes out in the end, whatever.

“But I definitely did not tell Gary to move to Scotland,” she added referring to a tell-all interview in which he claimed she dumped him after refusing to move to her native Scotland.

In light of the speculation, the Scottish star insisted that Lucy’s four children will “one hundred percent” be part of their half-sibling’s life, revealing that she and the soap star’s ex-wife Natasha Gray “have already spoken about it”.

During the same Q&A, another follower asked if she and the former Hollyoaks actor were on good terms, to which she answered firmly: “Definitely not.”

Anderson, who said her pregnancy was planned, was also left emotional when a fan asked if she was okay following their split

She responded: "Aww, that’s really so nice...oh my God I feel like I’m going to cry. It’s been a very stressful few months, but the only way is up."

Her comments come days after she updated her pregnancy announcement and edited “Baby Lucy” from the post.

When she first announced that she and the actor were expecting, she proudly declared: “Our hearts are full. Baby Lucy due Summer ‘23”.

In a since-deleted post, Anderson edited her pregnancy announcement and changed the unborn child’s name from Baby Lucy to Baby Anderson.

She later released a statement on her Instagram on Wednesday saying: “I had no intention to comment on the breakdown of my relationship with Gary. However, due to what has now been publicly shared by other parties, I have been left with no other choice.

“Gary and I are no longer together due to multiple reasons which will remain private. Our plan was for me to move to Essex to start our family which I was more than happy to do.

“However, since the breakdown of our relationship I have remained at home in Scotland. My priority is bringing my baby up in a calm and stable environment.

She added: “I never asked or expected Gary to move to Scotland. I fully support him living in Essex to be close to his four amazing children.

“I am fully focused on having a healthy, happy pregnancy and remain excited to share this incredible journey with you all. Thank you so much for you support! Laura, Buddy & Bump.”

Anderson and Lucy struck up a relationship while filming E4 show Celebs Go Dating last August.
