Speaking to fans on Instagram, the 27-year-old admitted: “I mean from... I don't know, maybe not day one [of MAFS] but like, it was pretty clear very quickly to me that Al and I wanted very different things.
“I think Love Island is much more suited to him, his personality and what he's looking for. I wish him all the best, and I hope he does find what he is looking for.”
Sam also spoke out about the backlash she received from MAFS viewers at the time, adding: “Everyone was saying I wasn't giving him a chance when I was like... ‘We don't want the same things!’
“We're very different people, and I want to settle down, so yes. But I wish him all the best!”
