Love Island stars Samie Elishi and Tom Clare have reportedly called it quits just a few weeks after leaving the villa.
The couple came third on the 2023 winter series, behind Lana Jenkins and Ron Hall in second place and Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan in first place.
The two appeared to have fallen head over heels for each other in the villa, and were arguably one of the most solid couples of the season.
But, apparently it just wasn't meant to be, with sources close to the couple confirming the news.
Speaking to The Sun, one source said: "Samie and Tom have sadly decided to call it a day.
"There is a lot of love and respect there but it just wasn’t going anywhere.
"The distance between them was too much and they are both really focused on their careers post Love Island."
Tyla has reached out to representatives for both Samie and Tom for comment.
This report comes just a few weeks after the couple made things official, having finally left the villa.
Announcing the news on Instagram in March, Samie posted a photo of Tom from a glamorous date night and wrote: "This is my boyfriend everyone."
Samie and Tom may be the first finalists from the latest season to part ways, but they're far from the first couple.
The first pair to announce their split after this season were Casey O'Gorman and Rosie Seabrook.
Just days after telling host Maya Jama that they were doing great at the Love Island reunion, Casey confirmed in a post to his Instagram Story that they decided to break up.
When one fan asked how things were going with his Love Island partner, Casey replied: "Rosie and I have spoken... she's such a great girl.
"Life outside the villa is just very different and we will remain friends moving forward!"
Meanwhile, Olivia Hawkins and Maxwell Samuda have also split after things outside of the villa just 'weren't the same'.
A spokesperson for Olivia told Goss.ie earlier this month: "Things weren’t the same between Olivia and Maxwell after they left the villa.
"Life has been hectic and they both decided it was best to end things.
"Olivia is happy to focus on herself right now and has a lot of exciting work projects coming up, including a role in the next Fast & Furious movie.
“It’s sad it didn’t work out but there’s no hard feelings between them.”
