Monday December 4th 2017 will officially go down in history as the day love died. Not only have Love Island couples Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas and Rykard Jenkins and Rachel Fenton called ita day, but this year's winners Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies have announced their split after almost six months together.

We'd be lying if we said we didn't have a little sob into our sausage roll over lunch, what of it?

Kem obviously released a statement confirming the pair have broken up, admitting they 'will remain good friends;' and now Amber's taken to Twitter to thank fans for their support at this trying time.

Addressing the whole split situ, Amber tweeted: "Would just like to say I am incredibly overwhelmed by everyone's lovely messages and comments. The love and support from you all has been absolutely heartwarming. Thank you so much."

This all comes after Kem explained they've decided to separate almost five months after winning the ITV2 telly show. He told MailOnline: "With sadness, we’ve decided to separate.

"We still have a lot of love for each other and will remain good friends."

A friend of the couple told The Sun: "They’ve been at each other’s necks for the past month.

"They’ve clashed over the smallest things.

"It’s also been very hard for them to see each other with their hectic schedules."

Earlier this week Amber hinted at a fresh start on Twitter, saying 'Look to the future now, it's only just beguuuuu-uuuu-nnnnnn-nnnn' complete with loads of Christmas-based emoji. Having said that, she could quite easily have been quoting the infamous Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade with no subtweet intended.

Who knows?

Here's what else has been going on this week:
