HEARTBROKEN Luca Bish revealed his hopes to live with Gemma Owen had fallen flat because she was too young.
Dressage rider [object Window], 19, daughter of ex-England striker Michael Owen, announced the end of the relationship with the ex-fishmonger, 23, in a statement on Wednesday.
He later shared a separate statement saying the decision was mutual.
Just a day before Lucas told The Sun he hoped to one day move in with Gemma but admitted her age was a factor stopping them.
When asked if they’d follow in the footsteps of other Love Islanders who settle down quickly, il a dit: “Nous avons fait un vœu devant Dieu et je ne l'ai pas tenu.”
Speaking at ITV’s Palooza, Luca added: “Elle est 19. Je suis 23. If we met on the outside world, I don’t think there’s that pressure on you at that age.
“Obviously meeting and on the show and being in the spotlight, there’s obviously that aspect to it.
“But no, not yet. We’re still young.
“We’re still trying to get our careers going. And then hopefully one day we’ll be there.”
Luca and Gemma recently jetted to Dubai with her family and he admitted it was the best holiday he’d ever had.
He told us: “It was probably one of the best holidays I’ve been on.
“Not just because it’s Dubai and we were at nice hotels and restaurants. Just the fact that like it was friends and family out there. It’s just an incredible experience and loved every minute of it.”
