These Love Island 2018 couples are dropping like flies, aren't they? WhileDani Dyer and Jack Fincham, Kazimir Crossley and Josh Denzel, Megan Barton-Hanson and Wes Nelson, and Adam Collard and Zara McDermott are all (thankfully) going strong, the rest of this year's intake have all seemingly bought group saver tickets to Splitsville.

The latest Love Island 2018 couple to call it a day were Sam Bird and Georgia Steel (don't worry, we kind of forgot they were a thing, too), just weeks after setting up home together in Essex.

News of the split broke when Sam took to social media, announcing he was 'devastated' by the break-up and too upset to divulge any details.

This was quickly followed by a statement on his Instagram Story (naturally), after rumours began circulating that Georgia had grown close to the couple's tour manager. Sam quashed these claims but hinted Georgia had cheated with an ex.

The statement read: "Claims that Georgia has cheated on me with our tour manager and friend Steve Lux is NOT true.

'It involves her ex."

Despite Georgia's denying these rumours in a now-deleted Instagram post, and her protestations that nothing happened with her ex (she's loyal after all, remember?), Sam has seemingly revealed more details about the split.

It's claimed Sam discovered a number of X-rated messages Georgia had sent to her ex-boyfriend, as well as a picture of the pair in bed together.

In the messages obtained by The Sun, Georgia reportedly boasted to a close friend about spending the night with her ex and even allegedly sent a picture of her and her ex in bed together.

“After the ITV Gala I sensed something was wrong – I had a gut feeling," a heartbroken Sam told the publication.

“Georgia told me she stayed with a friend after being at a PA, she said she came home and then went back out to a friend's but that didn’t seem plausible.

“My gut feeling was found to be true. She’s not the person I thought she was.”
