Love Island stars Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor have split, she announced in an Instagram Story this morning. In the post Maura explained the breakup was a "joint decision" adding that they still "love, care & respect each other deeply."

In a post on her Instagram Story Maura wrote:

"It breaks my heart to even type this. But I wanted to let everyone know that myself and Chris have made the joint decision to end our relationship. There is no wrong doing on either side... we still love, care & respect each other deeply.

From the minute we met each other we have been very close friends and that will never change. There is not regret. Life is about taking chances. We wanted to make this work but we have realised we work better being friends.

Whilst I appreciate people may speculate or create false stories. This is the truth. I wish Chris nothing but the best and I will always be one of his biggest supporters x. Thank you for all the love and support."

Chris also posted a similar statement to his Instagram Stories, in which he added that the pair were both struggling with the split:

"Hey guys. After some very heartfelt conversations over the past few days, myself & Maura are very sad to announce that we have decided to part ways. We are both still on good terms and this was a mutual decision where nobody had done anything wrong. We will remain friends, as we have been since day 1 and I will always be in Maura's corner and have her back.

We are both going through a very tough time with this atm, so please take any speculation with a metric tonne of salt, cos this is the only trust (and as always, trolls can kindly f*** off).

Thank you for all the love and support you've given us, it's truly been appreciated."

The pair, who were rumoured to have been together since June 2020, confirmed their relationship in November 2020, with a post on Instagram which was captioned, "Turns out I fell in love with my best mate @maurahiggins ♥️."
