Uh oh. Love Island fans think Luca Bish may have just thrown shade at Gemma Owen for announcing their split on the same day they broke up. Awkward.

Despite coming runners-up in the 2022 Love Island final, Luca and Gemma have gone their separate ways, with the 19-year-old sharing the news on her Instagram Stories yesterday [16 November.]

In a text post, Gemma wrote: "To all my followers, I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship. It wasn't an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for us both right now.

"Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as we start new chapters. Love, Gem x"

While Luca initially didn't comment on the split, he later took to his own social media to suggest Gemma had announced the news without him knowing, on the same day of the break up. He wrote:

"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 break up.

"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. We have been on such a journey together and have made some amazing memories which I will treasure. I can't thank everyone enough for their support for us as a couple during and after Love Island. We will remain good friends and I wish nothing but the best for her."

Some fans are taking this as a suggestion that Luca felt blindsided by Gemma's announcement, while others have pointed out that you never know what's going on in someone else's relationship. Either way, let's hope both of them are doing OK.
