Love Island's Gemma Owen breaks silence after split from Luca Bish as she posts picture of a 'new day' | The Sun

LOVE Island's Gemma Owen has posted for the first time since revealing her romance with Luca Bish is over.

The pair got together in front of millions of viewers this summer – but their romance crumbled outside the villa.

Luca has stayed quiet since making a brief statement about their "mutual decision" to break up.

His final post is still a picture of them together on Bonfire Night earlier this month, with the caption: "Experiencing another first with you."

But today Gemma, 19, returned to Instagram, posting an early-morning picture showing the new day dawning in the countryside.

It was quickly followed by a series of videos promoting her jewellery collection.

"It wasn’t an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for both of us right now.

"Many of you have been on this journey with us from the beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as a new chapter starts."

Luca later made his own statement, writing: "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."

He continued: "I would have liked some time to process this privately but as you all already now know sadly Gemma and I made the mutual decision earlier today to go our separate ways."

Their decision to split comes a little over two months after Luca asked her to be his girlfriend in a massive, lavish ceremony.

The 23-year-old fishmonger put on a show even the villa producers would struggle to replicate – with candles, roses and Cartier gifts.

Luca posted a video of the moment on his Instagram writing simply: "Finally. ❤️."

A source explained after the break-up that the pair were struggling with being so far apart – with her at the Owen family home in Cheshire and him in Brighton.

They told The Sun: “Gemma and Luca went from living together for weeks on Love Island and seeing each other every day,  to being hundreds of miles apart.

“It would put any relationship under strain. In the end it just became too difficult.

"They did discuss moving in together, but Gemma isn’t at a stage in her life where she really wants to move away from north Wales. She loves it there and Luca also loves his life in Brighton.

“It’s sad but they’ve parted on really good terms and they will definitely be keeping in touch and staying friends."
