Love Island: Davide “not surprised” by Gemma and Luca’s split

He said Luca was feeling quite “down” after the break-up.

Of the four finalist couples on this year’s Love Island, only three remain together following Luca Bish and Gemma Owen’s split last week.

The pair came second in the competition, behind Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, who were crowned this year’s winners.

Last week, however, Luca and Gemma announced that they had broken up in separate statements shared on Instagram.

Davide has now weighed in on the matter, and said that he was “not surprised” by their split.

He told Metro: “I was not very surprised. If this is what they think is right for them, then it’s for the best.”

He also shared that he spoke to Luca, and said that he was feeling “a bit down” after the break-up.

Yesterday, it seemed some of the Love Island lads – Dami Hope and Andrew Le Page – hung out with Luca over dinner.

Luca’s statement that he was no longer in a relationship with Gemma came a few hours after Gemma’s.

He wrote: “Switched my phone back on after taking some time out to clear my head after an emotional afternoon to thousands of messages and news articles about my breakup.

“I would have liked some time to process this privately but as you all now know sadly Gemma and I made the mutual decision earlier today to go our separate ways.

“We have been on such a journey together and have made some amazing memories which I will treasure.

“I can’t thank everyone enough for their support for us as a couple during and after Love Island. We will remain good friends and I wish nothing but the best for her.”
