Love is No Longer in the Air! Couple Announces Their Split After Just 2 Months!
Love Island winners Jess Harding and Sammy Root have officially ended their relationship just two months after triumphing in the ITV dating show’s final. The couple, who jointly secured the coveted £50,000 prize, found fame and fortune in July when they outshone their competitors, Whitey Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki, in the gripping season finale.
Sources close to the former Love Island champions have revealed that their relationship faced challenges following their departure from the villa. Despite appearing united at public events, including the Who Cares Wins Awards and the National Television Awards, the dynamics between Jess and Sammy reportedly changed upon their return to the UK.
An insider commented, “Jess and Sammy have called it quits. Things have changed since leaving the villa, and Jess has realized they’re better off as friends.” MirrorOnline has sought confirmation from the representatives of Jess and Sammy.
Recent developments have fueled speculations regarding the status of their relationship, with Jess currently vacationing in Ibiza without Sammy, intensifying rumors of a breakup.
Initially, Jess and Sammy had expressed their joy at winning Love Island, with Sammy stating, “It feels amazing; it’s hard to have any words for it, really, but it’s very surreal.” Jess added, “I feel like it was a close call, and everyone did so well. To win it is over the moon. Very positive, happy, and overwhelmed.”
Their victory came as a surprise to many viewers, especially considering they had been voted the least compatible pair by their fellow Islanders. Sammy addressed the shock, saying, “When we stood up there, we looked at everyone and thought they were all worthy to win. It was hard to work it out. When our names were called, it was a shock to the system, but a nice shock.”
Reflecting on her future with Sammy last month, Jess expressed her optimism, saying, “I feel like I’m ready to enjoy the outside world with Sammy. It’s been an amazing opportunity, and I am grateful to start it and finish it as a winner, so very happy.”
The breakup speculation intensified as fans noticed that the couple had ceased posting together on social media, a stark contrast to their previous habit of sharing daily loved-up snaps.
The end of Jess and Sammy’s Love Island romance marks another chapter in the tumultuous world of reality television relationships, leaving fans and followers eagerly awaiting updates on the individual journeys of the former winners.
