Why did Liam and Millie split up?

It’s not clear exactly why Love Island’s Liam and Millie split up the first time round, but they both struggled having a relationship in the public eye.

Opening up about their break up, Millie admitted that fans kept messaging her to tell her they saw Liam speaking to other women.

Speaking in a YouTube video, Millie said: “I am going to confirm that I am dating someone. But I'm not ready to tell you guys yet.

“And I love you guys and I love your support but it's early doors and you all experienced a whole, full blown meeting someone and a relationship on TV.

“You all saw it all unfold and then everything afterwards and as much as that was the best experience of my life, it is a lot when you have all eyes on you and your relationship.

“There's lots of judgements, lots of people sending you messages because they've seen the other person out - and it means absolutely nothing - they could just be talking to another person and people would be like, ‘they're cheating on you’.”

Millie also said she is dating someone again but wants to keep it out of the public eye.

She added: “I struggled with that a lot because it just wasn't nice. I don't really want people to be involved in my personal relationship. It ruined things. It was a big part why my last relationship ended.

“It's been a while since then and this next chapter I'm going to be keeping it a secret for a little bit, just to see how it goes.”

After their break up, Liam moved out of their Essex flat back to his home town in Wales, before moving back down to Essex on his own.

He said at the time: "Break-ups can be very hard and being in the public eye just make it that extra bit more difficult to deal with especially when you have rumours etc coming out and people judging your character off something which isn't true.

"But I've been down and when you're down you can either stay down or do what you can to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and move forward. And that's what I'm doing.

"Just want to say love to all you guys who follow and support me, especially over these past few months it means the world."
