It's been a crazy few days in the world of celebrity romances. Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were spotted looking very much on, Eastenders actress Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne split, and then rumours emerged that Love Island's Gabby Allen had dumped Marcel Somerville following allegations that he'd cheated on her.

And Marcel has now released a statement via his rep, seemingly admitting to cheating on his girlfriend.

Marcel's rep told OK! magazine: "Sadly the rumours are true, Gabby and Marcel have split up. Marcel can't really defend his actions as he knows he did wrong and will regret it forever.

"Marcel is upset that he broke the heart of someone he loves and someone that he shared so many special moments with, but with all the good times there are difficult times, and sadly Marcel and Gabby had been in a bad place at this stage.

"Gabby was a special part of Marcel's life, and he hopes one day she can find it in herself to forgive him. He knows what he did was wrong and is extremely sad about how he has hurt Gabby."

It comes after Gabby thanked her fans earlier today after admitting she was still 'in shock'. She wrote: "Thank you to everyone for your kind messages, love and support. It's been a tough couple of days, i think i might be in a bit of shock! But i'm sure in time i will be ok. i have the best family and friends around me. I'm a lucky girl."

News of Marcel's apparent infidelity first broke earlier this week when the girl in question supposedly showed Gabby text messages from the former Blazin' Squad singer.

According to reports, Marcel was asking the girl to meet up whilst the couple were on holiday together in Mexico in February this year. Gabby has since deleted all photos of Marcel from her Instagram page, including the ones from that holiday.
