‘Love Island’ UK’s Winning Couple Just Broke Up, So Aussies Are Already Screwed

Proving that reality TV shows are probz not the best way to kick off an irl relationship, Love Island UK’s 2017 winning couple Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies have parted ways after only four months together. Awkward.

This isn’t the best start for the Aussie version of the series, which will begin next year on Channel Nine. While Kem and Amber were inseparable during their time together on the island, they said in a joint statement that conflicting work responsibilities caused them to split up, saying:  “With sadness, we’ve decided to separatent.”

The statement goes on to say:

“We fell in love in the villa and want to thank all the fans of the show for supporting us.”

The couple were voted as the winning couple by the UK public and awarded a cheeky 50 thousand pounds to split. Money well spent, huh? The cute pair said that life off the island had caused their separation.

“Our lives have changed beyond recognition over the past few months and our hectic work schedules have made it difficult to make things work,” they continued.

“We still have a lot of love for each other and will remain good friends.”

Casting for the Aussie season (which will be hosted by Sophie Monk) has already begun, so let’s hope the couples have a tad more staying power. What a mess.
