Last night, Love Island fans’ hearts were broken when this series’ winner, Dani Dyer, confirmed that she had split from her co-star boyfriend, Jack Fincham.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Dani said the pair had “come to the realisation that it’s not meant to be long term” and were planning to stay friends post-split.
Some fans took to social media to wonder if there was some kind of Love Island “curse” on the winners, noting that 2017’s winners, Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies, announced their own split around the same time last year.
Others, meanwhile, wondered if there was just a curse on the 2018 contestants. Only three pairings from this year’s season are still together.
Other people theorised that there was some kind of contract the Love Island winners have been bound to follow over the last few years.
The 2018 Love Island winners are said to have split when Dani ended things after a series of rows.
A source told The Sun:
“Dani may have said this was a mutual decision, but that’s not the case. She ended it.
“He felt they could have made it work, but she showed a hard side and called time on the relationship.”
