After the news broke earlier this week that Love Island 2016’s only remaining couple, Cally Jane Beech and Luis Morrison had split, we didn’t think we could take anymore heartbreak, but it looks like 2018 runners-up Paul Knops and Laura Anderson have also gone their separate ways
According to new reports, Paul and Laura have decided to end their short-lived romance after they’ve been unable to spend much time together since leaving the villa two months ago.
A source said, “Laura and Paul have been so busy since the show finished and both had holidays planned without each other – so they have ended up spending a lot of time apart.
“Paul went to Los Angeles for modelling work and onto Burning Man while Laura enjoyed some time back in Dubai where she lived before signing up to Love Island.”
After having her fair share of heartbreak on the last series of Love Island, Laura thought she’d found her prince in the form of Paul, when he entered the villa as a late arrival.
Despite never actually putting a label on their romance, the pair seemed to be enjoying time together when they first left the villa, and even shut down rumors that they’d split following a blazing row in a bus stop.
If the new reports are true, Laura and Paul will be the second couple to split from the 2018 series. After Frankie Foster was caught cheating on Samira Mighty . during a club appearance, the pair released statements confirming they’d split, with samira now being linked with fellow islander Eval Booker
