So this was my gf chloe and she lived with me for last 6 months at my house we done everything together!! And the hole timeshe was going behind my back! To get on loveisland anyone that knows the pair is knows we was in a relationship! And have been for at least 7 months! She even came and picked a puppy up with me last week! And stayed at mine the night before she flew to @loveisland I can't belive I've been had over is such a way! She is totally fraud! She didn't even break up with me just her phone went off and her mum said she dropped it down the toilet! I'm gutted to think that someome@I let be part my family for so long can do this!! I feel sorry@for@amy guy she gets with on the island!! Let me get back out there and say my piece!! All I ever did was be there for her and support her! We fully together and she didn't even break up with me! I just want people to know the truth!

But not everyone is convinced that the heartbreak is genuine. Some fans have shared their suspicions that the whole thing is a publicity stunt. Hmm.

One Tweeted: ‘Omg I’m actually cringing at how desperate that Jon Clarke is to get back on love island [sic].’

Others wrote: ‘Does Jon Clarke think we’re thick? Blatantly been set up so he can go in there and kick off in a few weeks time,’ and: ‘For having a gf for 9 months, you don’t have one pic of her on your insta…I’d be sad if my bf of 9 months, who I’ve apparently lived with for 6, didn’t have 1 pic of us together on his certified insta… [sic].’

While others believed the drama to be genuine, they still predicted the show would now somehow include Jon. Messages included: ‘Love island gonna be lit when they put Jon Clarke in to pull up on his girl(ex girl now) [sic].’

After all the speculation, Jon took to his Instagram account (again) set the story straight.

Alongside a series of pictures of himself and Chloe, he wrote: ‘This is us over last 9 months!! For people saying this is a publicly stunt please believe me I wish it was!! Fact matter is she was my gf….. didn’t even break up with me to go on the show!

‘Who treats another human becoming like that the reason why I didn’t have it all over my Insta is coz I live a public life something’s are best left private ok [sic].’
