Love Island’s Sammy released a statement on Instagram last night about his breakup with Jess. He revealed that the two of them had had a “private conversation regarding our relationship” but that it was “left up in the air as Jess is still away and we haven’t had a chance to speak in person.” He went on to say that to see “via the media that we had officially broken up came as a complete shock.”

He made it clear in his statement that he “at least wanted a face-to-face conversation to see if our relationship could be saved.” Sammy said he “genuinely saw a future with Jess,” but that unfortunately “things don’t always work out the way you’d hoped.”

Love Island’s Jess has also removed all of her pinned posts that featured Sammy. She has also deleted all her highlighted stories with Sammy. So far Jess has not said anything regarding the breakup, but has been posting very vibey pictures of her Ibiza vacation. She seems very unbothered.

Sammy has also unpinned all his posts with Jess and has started to follow Ron again, with Ron following him back. So much drama.

Jess was also seen being carried by a mystery man near the pool in Ibiza. She’s really out here living her best life.
