Well this has left us all a bit gutted.
The rugby player and law student said work commitments and the distance were the reason behind their separation during an appearance on the Late, Late Show in Ireland.
Greg explained: "So we're mad about each other, what's not to be mad about? She's gorgeous, smart funny, she's the Queen of Love Island for a reason but you need to be realistic about the situation.
"She lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course she deserves all of it and I decided to come back to Ireland and do my thing here.
"I'm trying to get to the Olympics with the sevens team, I've got my law exams coming up so we're both so jam-packed busy and you need to take these opportunities by the scruff of the neck.
"So we're kind of just being realistic about the situation and protecting our careers and that's where we are at the moment.
The Sun reported Greg dumped Amber, 22, by text, leaving the beautician 'devastated'.
A source told The Sun: "Greg has broken up with Amber and is blaming their busy schedules and now they want to focus on their careers.
Yesterday Amber was seen engrossed in her phone as she hung out with best friend and Love Island star Anna Vakili.
Fans have been taking to social media to express their sadness at the news.
Never thought anyone would be worse than Michael this season than Greg does this to Amber. I don’t care about them as a couple but to humiliate this poor girl after what she’s been through with michael.... I’m LIVID #LoveIsland— sophia (@mangoxs) September 6, 2019
Actually thought greg was genuine but going on tv and announcing you’re starting a new job as a radio presenter the same day as reports he split with amber, smells like clout to me 🤔— maria (@MissJManus) September 6, 2019
