Gemma Owen ended her three-month relationship with her Love Island co-star Luca Bish after “nothing changed” following a make or break trip to Dubai.
Fishmonger Luca joined Gemma on a family holiday to Dubai just weeks ago and the pair shared a series of snaps from their getaway.
But their rocky romance didn’t improve, and a source exclusively tells OK!things came to an end after things didn’t change following the break.
The source told us: “It was Gemma who ended things. Things had been rocky for weeks and the split didn’t come as a shock.
"It had been going on for weeks and they had brushed over things and then they went to Dubai and nothing really changed so things came to an end."
They added: "On the outside after a couple of months it didn’t work out."
In one snap from the trip posted by Gemma’s former footballer father Michael Owen, the pair looked loved-up as they sat at the front of the boat with their family and friends.
The pair, who finished in second place on the ITV2 dating show in the summer, announced their split on Instagram last night with two separate statements.
Gemma, 19 wrote: "To all my followers, I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship. It wasn't an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for us both right now."
She continued: "Many of you have been on this journey with us from the beginning, and I wanted to thank you for your continued support as we start our new chapters."
A few hours later Luca, 23, took to his Instagram Stories to share: “Switched my phone back on after taking some time out to clear my head after an emotional afternoon to thousands of messages and news articles about my breakup.
“I would have liked some time to process this privately but as you all already now know sadly Gemma and I made the mutual decision earlier today to go our separate ways.
He continued: “We have been on such a journey together and have made some amazing memories which I will treasure. I can’t thank everyone enough for their support for us as a couple during and after Love Island. We will remain good friends and I wish nothing but the best for her.”
Luca pulled out all the stops to ask Gemma to be his girlfriend shortly after they left the villa, but recently there had been speculation that the couple’s relationship was on the rocks.
And their split comes just days after Luca confessed his romance with the equestrian star was “getting better and better”.
