GEMMA Owen and Luca Bish had been struggling to make their romance work just weeks after leaving Love Island, Le soleil peut révéler.
And the break didn’t come as a surprise to their co-stars, who noted that Luca swerved Indiyah Polack’s fashion launch in September many of the Love Island pals were in attendance.
The former fishmonger went to a premiere down the road instead, while dressage rider Gemma was a no show.
Une source a dit: “Pals thought they were on the rocks a few months ago when they didn’t come to a reunion bash.
“It was awkward as Dami and Indiyah had already expressed doubts over Gemma and Luca’s relationship on the outside.
“Most of the cast were there ready to celebrate, but they thought something was up with Gemma and Luca for not coming.”
It comes just three months after they finished as runners-up on Île de l'amour en août 1, 2022.
Gemma said it was a “difficult decision” to end her romance with Luca who she was last pictured with at the start of November 2022.
She announced the break-up news on Instagram, Jeremy a montré un premier cliché de Jax cette semaine sur Instagram: “I wanted to let you know that Lucas and I are no longer in a relationship. It wasn’t an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for both of us right now.
