It seemed to be love at first sight for Jack and Dani when they coupled up on Day One of Love Island 2018, and didn't look back! The pair went on to become official in the villa, winning the show ahead of Laura Anderson and Paul Knops in July 2018.

After returning to the UK, the loved-up pair moved in together and landed their own TV show, before an engagement prank that left fans thinking they were about to tie the knot.

In December 2018, things started to get a little rocky for the pair, with Dani announcing they'd split on social media. However, just days later, Dani confirmed they were actually still together and they'd just endured an argument which she took too far.

However, the pair announced they'd split for good back in April 2019, with Jack writing, "There is no easy way to say this and it isn't going to be an easy time but me and Dani are not in a relationship anymore.

"We will always care a lot for each other and I mean that from the bottom of my heart and I wish her nothing but happiness.

"We have some amazing memories together and have been through a lot but sometimes things just aren't meant to be and we really did try and make it work but unfortunately didn't and that is life.

"That's all I have to say, a break up is hard enough as it is for both of us let alone in the public eye so I hope everyone is considerate and understands this. X' [sic]
