We’re weeks away from Love Island series 11 but the Islanders from last year just won’t stop feuding.

We had the fallout with Ella Barnes, Messy Mitch Taylor and Abi Moores, Ella Thomas has hinted she’s not as close to her fellow Islanders and now Tyrique Hyde is shading Whitney Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki.

Cast your mind back to Love Island 2023 and Ella, Ty, Whit and Loch were like the fab four. Yeah, there was that awkward tiff between Ella and Whit but we thought all the drama was over.

Well, until we noticed Ella and Whit have barely met up since their stint together. Then Ella admitted they have drifted from their villa days.

"[There's] no issue but like, [we're] not really as close as we were in the villa. To be fair, we've not had any altercations, like nothing bad's happened.

"Nothing bad's been said to each other it's just, I'm super busy since coming out, she's super busy since coming out," she said on Zeze Millz's podcast.

Fast forward to now and Ella and Ty have confirmed they’ve split which means that Whit and Lochan are the last remaining series 10 couple.

However it’s this news that brought about the shade because after The Shade Borough posted on Instagram that Whit and Lochan are the last couple from the 2023 series, Tyrique posted a bunch of laughing emojis under the post.

Fans were divided by his response with one person writing, “Idk it’s giving hater.”

Someone else said, “Ty is so real.”

Another commented, “Share the joke??”

Ty’s comment comes after Ella confirmed their split on Snapchat. Replying to a fan asking about her relationship status, Ella wrote, “Just to clear things up, we're not together.

“Didn't speak on it while we were figuring things out & dealing with it privately. Both agree it's for the best & wish him well. All love. Thanks to everyone that supported us together and individually.”

After a fan asked Tyrique why he hasn’t spoken out about the split, he said, “Tf you want me to say? This is my life g, did you announce your breakup to the world?

“Just cos people on Love Island usually put out statements don't mean I have to. That's not my portion. Thank you to all my followers who show love. LATAA."

Well, that’s that then.
