We always thought Love Island's Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard were thick as thieves. Two peas in a pod. Very much cut from the same cloth. But - since we haven't seen the pair hang out in a while - we've had our suspicions there's more to it than the lockdown restrictions.
Well - in possibly the most shocking news since Tommy debuted his bright green barnet - Curtis has now revealed the 'honest truth' behind their friendship; and it sounds like the bromance has stopped blossoming.
Despite the lads starring in ITV2 reality show The Boxer & The Ballroom Dancer together after leaving the villa, Curtis has admitted Tommy's been ghosting him of late.
Chatting to brother and rumoured I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! 2020 campmate AJ Pritchard on their AJ vs Curtis podcast, Curtis explained, "If you want the honest honest truth - I haven't spoken to him in ages actually.
"I got a new phone and I lost his number. I have messaged him on Instagram a couple of times but I've been pied off by him."

Plot twist though, just 72 hours after landing back in Blighty, Lucinda announced that she and Aaron were just friends. She was then pictured holding hands with BRAD on a night out in Brighton, declaring that it 'was early days'. BLIMEY
Look! More news!
Elaborating on Tommy's ghosting technique, Curtis added, "I've messaged Tommy and he hasn't replied. We are friends but we haven't spoken in a while."
Ah. So no hard feelings then, eh?
WATCH: Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard play Who's Most Likely To?
This all comes after fans practically begged Love Island bosses to allow Tommy and Curtis - who they claimed to be the only 'real' relationship in the villa - to win the show last year.
"Surely the best couple is the bromance of Curtis and Tommy. If only we could vote for them as a couple," one tweeted at the time.
"Curtis and Tommy slow dancing together is my favourite part of the whole series. I ship it #loveisland," said another.
Let's hope Tommy checks his Instagram DMs and arranges a catch-up bev with Curtis soon.
