Kaz Kamwi and Tyler Cruickshank have broken their silence on rumours they have split in a joint statement, confirming they are no longer an item.
The pair were rumoured to have split after just three months together last week.
A source claimed Kaz, 26, and former estate agent Tyler, also 26, went their separate ways as they "didn't see a future together".
The insider said last week: "Kaz and Tyler have decided to go their separate ways after giving everything to make their relationship work.
"The romance ended on good terms and they’re still friends, who will support each other in the industry," they added to Mail Online.
Now, the pair have confirmed they are no longer an item in a joint statement, which Tyler shared on his Instagram page.
It read: "We are extremely sad to announce that we have decided to end our romantic relationship.
"We have had a fantastic journey and we will always have a special bond between us.
"We will continue to be very much in one another's lives and support each other in every way."
The statement added: "We are so grateful that we have shared this Love Island experience with each other, and we will continue to support each others careers.
"Life since the villa has been amazing, but it’s taking time to adjust to a new normal in the public eye. This part of the journey hasn’t been easy for us but we’re learning.
"Thank you to every single person who has supported us, we appreciate you more than you will ever know."
Kaz and Tyler met in the Love Island villa in Majorca, Spain earlier this year.
The pair faced some hurdles during their time on the reality dating show as they were caught in a love square as Tyler brought Clarisse Juliettè back from Casa Amor and Kaz re-coupled with Matthew MacNabb.
But, the pair soon gravitated back to one another as they realised their feelings.
Kaz and Tyler then made it to the final and were the only couple to not become officially boyfriend and girlfriend on the reality show.
But, Tyler soon popped the question during a sweet moment, which aired during the Love Island reunion.
Their romance appeared be going from strength the strength but, the couple were the only finalists to not move in together.
Tyler explained his reasons behind not shacking up with Kaz in an interview with OK! in October.
He said: "We haven't moved in as of yet. Work is coming our way so we're trying to make our way through that we're still seeing each other quite a lot anyways but, we haven't moved in as of yet."
