PIERS Morgan has taken a cruel swipe at Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea’s romance after the Love Island winners split up.
The Good Morning Britain host took to Twitter with a sarcastic comment about him being “gob-smacked” by the split.
“No???? You mean it wasn’t true love after all? I’m gob-smacked,” he tweeted.
The post was quickly flooded with comments.
“Don’t be so cynical Piers,” one suggested.
“Come on is anyone really surprised,” another added.
The Sun Online exclusively revealed earlier today that Amber, 22, has been left devastated after Greg, 24, dumped her by text.

“Amber is devastated,” said the insider. “She thought he was a lovely guy, but he’s made his feelings clear over text, which isn’t very sensitive.
“She had a feeling he was going to make decision to end things but only because she’d been hearing things.
“He hadn’t the decency to tell her himself until she confronted the issue.
“They had a lovely weekend in Dublin planned but he’s just pulled the plug and left her wounded.
“Amber loved her time in the villa with Greg it’s just not been the same since he left for Ireland.”

Now she’s single again Amber is throwing herself into her career, with big plans in place after a fan called her out for not being as busy as some of the other islanders, like Molly-Mae or Maura Higgins.
The source said: “Amber has huge deals in place that she’s looking forward to announcing what she’s been busy working on.”
The Sun Online has reached out to reps for both Amber and Greg.
Her split from Greg comes just days after Anton Danyluk and Belle Hassan separated due to the Scotsman’s constant partying and public appearances.
Fans had feared Amber and Greg had split up after noticing they’d spent weeks apart on social media.
They won the public over on the show after being together for only 12 days, but they never made their relationship official in the outside world.
Amber made no secret that she missed Greg in both her own social media captions and in the comments of his posts.
However, Newcastle native Amber’s Instagram post of the pair four days ago is the one that ignited rumours of a split.
It showed the pair snuggling up on a lake in Limerick, during Amber’s trip to the rugby player’s home in Ireland two weeks ago.
The caption read: “My Babes // Squinty squinterson. Miss ya.”
Despite the happy appearance in the photo, fans worried something was wrong.
One person wrote: “Please what’s up with you! Make your own announcement please love.”
Another added: “Feel sad that they don’t see each other it would be easier for her if she was his girlfriend but he has his reasons for not asking her hope she doesn’t get tired of waiting.”
Someone even accused them of faking the relationship, saying: “Drop the act.”
While on Twitter someone pointed they haven’t been seen interacting: “Oh I was like I haven’t seen them interacting but maybe they just keeping it on the low.”
It looked even worse when Greg posted a photo of other Love Islander Jordan Hames and his pal at the races in Killarney together.
Amber posted: “Wish I could have been there!! Next time.”

Greg didn’t respond to the post.
In early August, Amber told the Loose Women panel that a long distance relationship would be “hard work”.
She said at the time: “We’re taking it slowly, [the distance] is going to be hard, but if you want to make something work you put the effort in, you go to the ends of the earth to be with them.”
