It hurt. Isn’t it just awful when the winner couple splits up? Greg, a fan favorite, was among the last Islanders to join villa. The couple got together weeks before the finale and won season 5. They broke up just weeks after.
After some mild controversy and back and forth between the couple over how exactly the split went down (apparently Greg, a rugby player based in Ireland, ended it via text), Amber said on Loose Women, “I think the careers and the distance was always a factor. It was always something that we knew about, so I don’t know what changed. I kind of wanted to make it work, but it is what it is, really.”
As for Greg, he defended himself, saying on RTE’s The Late Late Show, “She lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course, she deserves all of it and I decided to come back to Ireland and do my thing here.”
