Laura Anderson addresses break up with Gary Lucy

“I never asked or expected Gary to move to Scotland.”

Love Island star Laura Anderson has directly addressed her breakup from Gary Lucy for the first time.

Laura and Gary are expecting their first child together, however, shortly after Laura’s pregnancy announcement, Gary confirmed that they were no longer together, but planning on co-parenting the child.

At the time, he told The Sun: “I love Laura but we are no longer together. My main drive as always is to work together to co-parent our child. I look forward to the arrival of the new baby.”

He later said that Laura wanted him to move to Scotland, however as he has children in England this was not an option for him.

“Laura did want me to move but I have my responsibilities here,” he said. “I have four kids and all the things that go along with that so it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to uproot at this time.”

He continued: “Having gone through a divorce, my children need me and living such a long way from them just would not be possible.

“I wish I could break myself in half. I would if I could.”

Laura, however, has said that she never asked him to move to Scotland.

Taking to her Instagram story, she wrote: “I had no intention to comment on the breakdown of my relationship with Gary.

“However, due to what has now been publicly shared by other parties, I have been left with no choice.

“Gary and I are no longer together due to multiple reasons which will remain private.

“Our plan was for me to move to Essex to start our family which I was more than happy to do. However since the breakdown of our relationship I have remained at home in Scotland. My priority is bringing my baby up in a calm and stable environment.

“I never asked or expected Gary to move to Scotland. I fully support him living in Essex to be close to his four amazing children.

“I am fully focused on having a healthy, happy pregnancy and remain excited to share this incredible journey with you all. Thank you so much for your support!”
