Love Island fans previously had their suspicions about Adam Collard and Paige Thorne's relationship.
And it seems that viewers correctly put two and two together, as Adam has opened up about their split at the NTAs.
The Newcastle native headed to the award show by himself, while his ex showed up with her former Islanders Danica Taylor and Antigoni Buxton.
Speaking to The Sun on the red carpet, the reality star confirmed: “We’re not together. Things happen. But, I mean, she is a great girl.”
Rumours began circulating after the 26-year-old took to Instagram on 3 August, where he shared a topless photo of himself captioned: "Don't call it a comeback".
Paige had also posted her own photo at the time, which fuelled the rumours further.
More recently, Paige took to Instagram in what seemed to be a swipe at the circulating comments on their relationship.
On 3 October, the reality star simply wrote in response: "I'm good x"
Tyla has contacted a representative of Paige Thorne for a comment.
Viewers became worried for the couple after the 'meet the parents' episode of Love Island in July, when Paige's mum expressed some concerns about Adam.
Ahead of the final, the remaining 10 islanders were paid a very special visit from their parents to get their thoughts on their relationships - and they did not hold back.
Sitting down with her mum and dad - who has refused to watch his daughter cracking on in the villa - Paige was eager to find out what they thought of her blossoming romance with Adam.
After taking a long pause to think about her answer, Paige's mum whispered: "I'm not buying it."
As if that wasn't enough of a shock for Paige to hear, the Welsh paramedic was at a loss for words when her mum confessed that she had preferred her with Jacques.
She said: "The way you were with Jacques was completely different. You were a lot more you, and full of life and personality. You just seemed a lot different with Jacques."
Speaking in the Beach Hut later, Paige laughed: "My mum and her savage comments. I mean, she would be. I was just like 'Oh, for God's sake'."
And it seems that her mum may have been right about their relationship - which has now been confirmed to have come to an end.
