Love Island stars Sam Bird and Georgia Steel confirmed they had ended their relationship on Wednesday, but had not revealed a reason as to why.
Sam released a heartbroken statement on his 63,000 follower-strong Twitter page, which read: “I’m devastated to announce me and Georgia have split up for reasons I cant bring myself to comment on at the moment. As always I wish her all the best.”
Now, a close friend of the couple has revealed more details on their split – and made the shocking claim that Georgia “was not loyal” to Sam, leading to the demise of their romance.
“Sam is devastated,” a source exclusively told OK! Online.
“He truly believed that Georgia was the one, after their experience on Love Island, leaving the show to be together and moving in their home – he thought him and Georgia would be together for the long run.
“In his eyes they had a good relationship. However, Sam has recently found out Georgia has not been loyal to him.”
OK! Online have contacted representatives for Sam and Georgia for comment.
It comes after Georgia similarly took to Instagram to confirm the break-up news to her 1.6 million Instagram followers.
She wrote: “I’m very sad to say me and Sam have split. I will always care about him However please understand this is a hard time for us both thank you.”
A day before their split, Sam and Georgia looked as loved up as ever as they hit the red carpet of ITV’s Palooza! on Tuesday evening.
Georgia stunned in a sheer black dress as she wrapped an arm around her former beau.
Sam looked dapper as he modelled a blue suit with a grey rollerneck jacket.
The pair are most famous for sensationally quitting the hit ITV2 show after being told that to stay in the series they would have to split.
