Love Island stars Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins have reportedly split after three months, according to the Daily Mail.
They had been coupled up from the beginning, and while they had their ups and downs throughout the season, eventually came out of the show as an item, finishing in second place after being beaten to the £50k prize by Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan.
Last week, Hall – who lives in Essex and became the first partially sighted contestant to star on the programme – shared a snap from their holiday in Spain with his 393,000 followers, writing: “Te Amo,” which means ‘I love you’ in Spanish.
Jenkins – who is based in Manchester – responded with a cute love heart emoji.
However, it sounds like things have already ground to a halt, with reports that the couple struggled to make their long distance relationship work.
A source told the Daily Mail: “Lana and Ron really put everything into their romance and have tried to make things work for some time now.
“Unfortunately, they have decided to separate, which is a decision they have made amicably and of course, they still remain good friends.
“Commuting from Manchester to Essex and back again whenever they wanted to spend time together, as well as managing their work commitments just proved too difficult.”
Tyla has reached out to representatives for Hall and Jenkins for comment.
Before heading into the villa, Hall told the Daily Mail that he wanted to find a partner who was like his ‘best friend’.
“I want someone that I don't have to try really hard to talk to all the time,” he explained.
“I need to chat with someone who I can talk to for hours almost like they're my best friend and that's the dynamic I want in a relationship.
“From the age of 18-23, I didn't really have too many emotions when it came to letting myself be loved or open myself up to a relationship. As I've grown up, I want to show more of that side and be more vulnerable.”
The news follows the announcement that 2022 winners Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu have also broken up.
"Ekin Su and I are no longer together," Sanclimenti told fans via his Instagram Story.
"I am grateful for the memories and opportunities we shared together and I wish her nothing but the best.
"I would like for everybody to respect this decision during this difficult time, I will continue to support Ekin in any way possible."
