They were the 'it' couple from this years Love Island UK, but Dani and Jack have broken hearts around the world by announcing their split after 129 days together. 

Taking to Instagram, Dani said: "Jack and I have sadly decided to part ways.

"It's been an incredible six months and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other but sadly we have come to the realisation that it's not meant to be in the long term.

"We both plan to stay friends. I hope you'll all understand."

Jack previously admitted that their relationship wasn't perfect and that filming their upcoming reality show and living together had made things harder.

The Love Island star said: "Filming the show wasn’t easy. It was tough, it was intense – you’re on camera most days of the week all day long.

"We had bickers during filming just like any other couple. I got emotional with Dani doing it; I even had a couple of tear ups. But Dani and I got through it."

It's been reported that their reality TV show will air as expected and the Love Island: The Christmas Reunion, which was recorded last week, will still be released. 

Meanwhile, a source added: "They came out to a whirlwind of publicity and after a while, things started to get to them and the cracks appeared.

"They are both incredibly busy and they have decided to call time on their romance."

Jack and Dani aren't the Love Island first couple to split from this year's show.

In fact, only three of the couples remain together – Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley, Megan Barton-Hanson and Wes Nelson and Adam Collard and Zara McDermott.
