It's been rumoured for some time, but earlier this week Love Island 2018 couple Ellie Brown and Charlie Brake announced their split, with Charlie confirming the news on his Instagram page.

Now, just days later, Ellie has broken her social media silence, but much to her fans' shock, the Geordie girl FAILED to mention the break-up. Instead, Ellie posted a stunning sun-baked selfie, promoting a fashion brand.

Fans were quick to comment on the stunning photo, with many asking if she is still together with the Chelsea millionaire. One user asked, 'Did u and Charlie split ???', with another adding, 'Are you and Charlie still together xx'. [sic]

Others were quick to compliment Ellie, one wrote, 'Looking amazing love you 😍', with another adding, 'Hope ur doing ok, keep ur head held high x'. [sic]
