Greg O’Shea and Amber Gill were the fastest winning couple to break up in Love Island history; but it turns out their split wasn’t quite as sinister as we’d assumed.
Greg had only been in the Love Island villa for 13 days before being crowned joint winner of the show’s fifth series last year. They then realised that they didn’t actually know each other very well and weren’t as well suited as fans had hoped.
We're not ashamed to say we genuinely shed a tear that day.
Love Island couples: where are they now?
Love Island couples - where are they now?
Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies (2017 Winners)
Kem and Amber stayed together for four months after they were crowned winners of the show, with Amber even moving in to Kem's family home in Essex. The pair, however, recently split for good following a string of rows and bust-ups, and a clashing of 'hectic work schedules'. They released a statement saying: "we still have a lot of love for each other and will remain good friends." Emosh... looks like Kem wasn't Amber's type on paper after all.
Jamie Jewitt and Camilla Thurlow
Jamie and Camilla still remain a couple, and Jamie's even taken trips up to Scotland to meet the fam! The pair have also done a lot of charity work together... cute.
Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood
Chris and Olivia (AKA Barbie and Ken) have been pretty on and off since leaving the villa, with both of them facing cheating rumours. But despite the dramas the couple are still together, and Olivia has even met Chris' beloved cows. P.S you'll be happy to know Cash Hughes is still safe and sound...
Marcel Somerville and Gabby Allen
'Power couple' of the series Marcel and Gabby are still as strong as ever. Gabby has recently launched her own fitness app as her latest project, while Marcel is probably somewhere telling someone he used to be a member of Blazin' Squad.
Alex Beattie and Montana Brown
Alex and Montana called it a day less than a month after leaving the villa - a mutual decision between the two. They claimed it was 'hard' making it work in the outside world.The pair have since gone their separate ways, with Montana launching her own clothing line, and Alex bagging himself a new girlfriend.

Sam and Georgia split just a month after the show, despite flying off to Marbella for a holiday together. In a very cryptic tweet, Georgia wrote: 'would like to confirm that myself and Sam are no longer together. Unfortunately for some men one girl isn't always enough'. Awks. Sam is now coupled up with Geordie Shore co-star Chloe Ferry after landing himself a spot on the reality series.
Jonny Mitchell and Tyla Carr
Even though Jonny vowed to wait for Tyla when he was dumped from the villa, he instead wasted no time at all and cosied up to fellow islander Chyna Ellis, taking her on a string of romantic dates... including a trip to Budapest. Jonny also dated MIC star Stephanie Pratt but is now single and currently a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother, trying to get rid of his 'love-rat' label.

Adam Maxted and Katie Salmon
Although they coupled up as friends rather than a romance, they gave things a go. But shortly after leaving the villa, Adam revealed their split on Twitter with one of his infamous metaphors: "It's like when you're eating a kebab after a night out and the first few bites taste good but then you realise that it really isn't nice at all!"... charming.Adam is now a professional wrestler and has a new girlfriend.

Jordan (AKA Hulk) and Zoe continued their romance after the show but it didn't last very long...
So, what really went on behind-the-scenes?
The Irish rugby player has now admitted that he could have tried harder to make the relationship work, but was focusing most of his energy on rugby training and “couldn’t give her what she wants and needs”.
Speaking to goss.ie, he revealed that they had both spoken privately since their split and harboured no hard feelings towards each other.
Greg reckons: "She's class and she's got everything going for her. But the issue was, when I came home I stuck myself into training.
"I could have tried harder but that would have made her unhappy. I couldn't give her what she wants and needs.
"People kind of got the wrong story, they just saw 'Greg breaks up with Amber over text'. There was so much more to it.
"We were in person, we were FaceTiming, there was phone calls, back and forth, and then just one thing comes out. There's no point in even fighting it because you're just fighting a losing battle."
After their break-up back in 2019 (just one month after leaving the villa), the story broke that Greg had dumped Amber over text.
As a result, hardcore Amber fans started a social media hashtag: #unfollowgreg. Greg admitted that all the negativity surrounding their sudden split was hard to deal with.
But, explaining it's all in the past, Greg added: "Me and Amber have spoken privately, I don't think anyone really knows this.
"We've spoken privately since and we're both like yeah, no hard feelings, we probably could have dealt with the situation better.
"We get on and there's no hard feelings, that’s all that matters really."
