Love Island stars Ella Thomas and Tyrique Hyde have allegedly 'split four months after leaving the villa'.
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.
Others Islanders at the event includes the likes of winners Millie Court and Liam Reardon, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti alongside finalists Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page.
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."
The former couple came third during the Love Island final back in August of this year, with Jess Harding and Sammy Root winning the whopping £50,000 cash prize instead.
Jess and Sammy, however, split up mere weeks later.
Upon leaving the villa, Ella wrote on Instagram to her 980k followers: "We stay winnin.
"Just wanna give a huge shoutout to thank everyone that’s been rooting for us and supporting our journey!
"Appreciate every single one of you! All the love has been unreal and doesn’t go unnoticed."
She concluded the post adding: "Looking forward to our next chapter!"
