Sam Bird has claimed Georgia Steel's ex-boyfriend was the reason he split from the Love Island star.

The reality TV couple, who were inseparable since meeting in the villa, put on a united front at the ITV Palooza on Monday night, hours before a “devastated” Bird announced the news they had split.

Steel was forced to respond to reports accusing her of not being a ‘loyal babe’ and having a fling with her manager Steven West.

But, it appears Bird has put an end to the claims, throwing her ex-boyfriend into the rin.

Taking to his Instagram story, the 25-year-old wrote: “Claims that Georgia has cheated on me with our tour manager and friend Steve Lux is NOT true.

“It involves her ex.”

Standard Online has contacted representatives for Steel for comment.

The comments come after Steel hit back at reports hinting at an affair with West.

Blasting reports on Thursday, she told fans: “The story of myself being linked with Steven West. This is laughable.

"He is my tour manager who drives me to all my PAs. Nothing more.”

Earlier this week, Bird took to social media to share news of the pair’s split.

Posting a short statement on Twitter, he wrote: “I’m devastated to announce me and Georgia have split up for reasons I can’t bring myself to comment on at the moment.

“As always I wish her all the best,” he added with a sad face emoji as fans and friends rushed to support him.
