Love Island’s Montana and Alex announce split

Love Island stars Montana Brown and Alex Beattie have announced they are no longer a couple.

The pair, who met on the ITV2 dating show, came fifth in the competition, narrowly missing a place in the final.

Brown wrote on Twitter: “Alex and I have decided to split. Making our relationship work on the outside has been hard.

“He hasn’t been the same since coming out of the villa. Despite this we are still close and I will always support him.”

She added a disappointed face emoji.

Beattie wrote on Twitter: “Me and Montana met yesterday and have decided that it’s best to call it a day with our relationship with each other.

“It’s been very hard on the outside to make us work how we desired.

“I still have strong feelings towards her and will be remaining close friends and supporting her throughout everything.”

The couple met after Beattie joined the Love Island villa halfway through the series, and they enjoyed a steady relationship.

Brown recently signed a contract with clothing company Pretty Little Thing, while Beattie is modelling for BoohooMan.
