The former Islanders confirmed that they have made the decision to end their relationship in statements shared on both of their respective Instagram Stories.
The statement from Millie reads: "Hi everyone, to avoid any speculation, Liam and I wanted to share with you that we have separated."
Millie described the split as a 'tough decision' but added that 'it's ultimately what is best for us right now'.
Millie went on to thank their fans and said they are both ‘ready for new chapters’.
She wrote: “Thank you to every single one of you for supporting our relationship. Nothing will ever take away from the amazing experience we shared in Love Island and the past year and I wish Liam all the best in everything he does.
“We’re both ready for new chapters and I’m excited for what’s next. Love, Millie.”
Liam posted a similar statement on his Instagram story, writing: “Hi everyone, to avoid any speculation Millie and I wanted to share with you that we have sadly separated.
“Honestly so gutted. But thank you to every single one of you for supporting our relationship.
“Nothing will ever take away from the amazing experience we shared in Love Island and the past year we’ve been so lucky to both come into each other’s lives.
Liam promised that the former couple will remain friends and he also said he’s ‘excited’ for what’s next.
“We both will continue to be friends and I will remain as Millie’s biggest supporter in all that she does and I know she will always do amazing.
“We’re both ready for new chapters and I’m excited for what’s next.
“Again I just want to [thank you] all for supporting us on what’s been an incredible journey.”
The public voted Millie and Liam as the winners of the show in August last year.
Millie and Liam were then up against Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran but the couple - who were compared to Gavin and Stacey from the series of the same name - were chosen as the people’s winners.
Millie and Liam both entered the villa as early bombshells with Millie arriving with Lucinda Strafford and Liam joined by Oliver George Lee Wallis (AKA Chuggs).
The two had a quick connection and they even were known affectionately as “Milliam” and quickly became fan favourites, especially when Liam nicknamed his partner “Millie-Moo”.
However when Liam went with the boys to Casa Amor to meet six new girls, his head momentarily turned by Lillie Haynes who he kissed several times and shared a bed with.
In scenes that were compared to 2022 contestants Paige Thorne and Jacques O'Neill, Millie stayed loyal and wasn’t shown getting to know any of the new boys sent into the original Villa.
