PIERS Morgan ripped into Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea’s romance after it was revealed the Love Island winners split up.
Fans of the ITV reality show are devastated today after The Sun Online broke the news rugby player Greg broke up with Geordie Amber by text.
But while a lot of viewers are shocked by the break up, Piers Morgan was not surprised at all.
In fact, he delivered a scathing, sarcastic blow to the couple on Twitter when he quote tweeted The Sun’s story, which read: “Greg used Amber to win the Love Island £50k prize before he dumped her by text”.
The Good Morning Britain host said: “No???? You mean it wasn’t true love after all? I’m gob-smacked.”
In the replies, lots of people agreed, with one person commenting: “Minutes after they won I said they would be the first to split up, my girlfriend punched me.”
Another added: “Oh for heavens-sake, such heartbreak. I mean come on people this was obvious from the start!”
Of course, Piers has never been particularly fond of Love Island.
At the start of this year’s series, he said on Good Morning Britain that the contestants were “the most stupid they’ve ever had”.
He also made a £1000 bet with Love Island’s voice over comedian Ian Stirling that every couple will have split by January 2020.
Whoever loses the bet will have to donate the money to the charity MIND.
This comes as The Sun Online exclusively revealed 24-year-old Greg dumped Amber, 22, over text just five weeks after beating Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague to the £50,000 jackpot.
According to a source close to Amber, she now feels “used” by the Irish law student.
The source told The Sun Online: “Amber feels used by Greg. He was always aware of the distance and his career in their relationship, and yet he chose to seek out Amber in the villa knowing there would always be the distance.
“He hasn’t made any effort to come to London to see Amber, despite it being over five weeks, it’s always Amber who had to make the effort.”
Rumours about their relationship being trouble have circulated all week due their unusual social media interaction.
Earlier this week she posted a photo of the pair on a lake in Limerick from two weeks ago, with the caption: “My Babes // Squinty squinterson. Miss ya.”
Despite looking happy, 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.”
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.”
