It really has been one unlucky week in the world of Love Island romances.
Just yesterday, 2023 stars Tyrique Hyde and Ella Thomas allegedly called it quits just four months after leaving the iconic Spanish villa together.
And today, fans of 2019 winner Amber Gill have been left heartbroken after learning that she and football star girlfriend Jen Beattie have allegedly called time on their romance.
The formerly-loved-up couple first went public while attending London's Winter Wonderland together in December last year, with Jen being Amber's first ever same-sex partner.
The pair had first connecting on TikTok, with Amber later showcasing her love for the sportswoman at the FA Women's Continental Tyres League Cup Final in March, after being papped kissing her from the sidelines.
Amber, 26, admitted to press earlier this year that she's still 'figuring out' her sexuality - after she won the fifth series of Love Island with ex-boyfriend Greg O'Shea - but was enjoying her 'fun' relationship with Arsenal player Jen, 32.
The reality star previously opened up about 'coming out' following her time on the show, claiming that the reaction she'd received from fans had been 'overwhelmingly positive', despite her belief that 'queer women in relationships' aren't always taken 'seriously.'
Despite having enjoyed a short but sweet relationship, however, the Daily Mail has claimed this morning that the duo have officially gone their separate ways after allegedly 'growing apart'.
The news comes a day after Amber and Jen attended separate showbiz events in central London, with the last red-carpet appearance they attended together as a couple being the 2023 Pride of Britain Awards in October.
"Amber and Jen have decided to end their relationship," an inside source told the publication today.
"They remain good friends and the split was amicable but they just grew apart after struggling to spend time together.
"There's still a lot of love between them and Amber will always hold a special place in her heart for Jen but ending their romance was the best decision for their lives right now."
As mentioned, the heartbreaking news comes just hours after it was announced that Love Island stars Tyrique and Ella have split up.
The pair have seemingly found it difficult to navigate their romance after leaving the Love Island villa given the long-distance status of their relationship.
Ella, a 23-year-old model, is based in Scotland, while 24-year-old footballer Tyrique lives way down south in Essex. This apparent strain caused the couple to pull out at the last minute of the ITV Palooza just last week.
An insider revealed to MailOnline that it is 'unlikely' their romance will be able to withstand the test of time even though they are trying to make it work.
The source claimed: "Ella and Ty split in secret but got back together and it's been like that for a few weeks now, they are very on and off.
"Viewers saw how the dynamic between them can often be fiery and it's been no different since they left Love Island."
They went on: "This is the first time Ty has been in a relationship and often Ella can feel let down... she expects a lot from him, and he hasn't been delivering.
"Then there's the distance, Ella still lives in Scotland and Ty is in Essex with his family so spending quality time with each other can be tricky."
The insider also pointed to the pair's work schedules being a factor in the alleged split.
"Ella has also been traveling back and forth to Los Angeles thanks to her modelling work and ambassador deal with PrettyLittleThing," they added.
"They're trying everything they can to make it work but the romance currently hangs by a thread."
Tyla contacted both Amber and Jen's, and Tyrique and Ella's representatives for comment.
