Love Island fans were left a little heartbroken with the news that last year’s winning couple, Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey, called it quits on their romance.
A few days after reports emerged, claiming that a string of ‘rows’ were behind their break-up, both former reality star contestants took to their social media accounts to confirm the news.
At the time, Cara tweeted: ‘Me & nath have split 💔 sometimes love just isn’t enough, but what will be will be ❤️ thankyou for everyone’s support lately 👌🏽’.

Me and Cara have split, we’ve had the summer of our lives together , but sadly come to a end , I wish her the best for the future 💔’.
