Many Love Island fans have continued to follow both Luca and Gemma after the show.

Gemma Owen and Luca Bish were seemingly one of the strongest couples in Love Island Season 8, though they decided to part ways weeks after the show ended.

The pair featured on Gemma’s YouTube channel a few times, with fans speculating they didn’t seem as close as they were in the villa.

Luca wasn’t very pleased about the way Gemma announced they had parted ways, saying in a post: “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.”

Here’s the message Gemma Owen shared, announcing her and Luca were no longer an item.

Gemma broke the news on her Instagram story and later in December, opened up about the split in an interview with Goss.ie. She said: “These last few weeks, as going through any breakup, it’s not nice. It’s not a nice time.

“Having to deal with the press and other people’s opinions, and people thinking that they know what’s going on when they don’t, that’s been challenging. But overall, I’m doing ok. I’m getting through it and keeping busy.”

The pair are said to be friendly with each other since their parting, but it looks unlikely they will rekindle what they had on the ITV 2 show in the future.
