Greg O’Shea opens up on split from Amber Gill as he finally reveals reason behind break-up

Greg O'Shea has finally revealed the real reason he dumped Amber Gill just five weeks after they won Love Island together.

The 25 year old shot to fame on the hit ITV2 reality show last summer, instantly "coupling up" with Geordie beauty Amber, 21.

After just 13 days in the villa, Greg was crowned winner of the show's fifth series thanks to his pairing with Amber.

However, their romance soon fizzled out and it was revealed just over a month after their victory that the pair had called it quits.

It was reported that Greg had dumped beauty therapist Amber via text message, with a social media campaign against the Irish rugby player soon kicking off.

After the #unfollowgreg campaign, Greg lost over 400,000 followers on Twitter in the space of week, with him now admitting he found the negativity hard to deal with.

He has now announced that he decided to part ways from Amber because they "really didn't know each other that well."

Greg told Goss.ie of Amber: "She's class and she's got everything going for her. But the issue was, when I came home I stuck myself into training.

"I could have tried harder but that would have made her unhappy. I couldn't give her what she wants and needs.

"People kind of got the wrong story, they just saw 'Greg breaks up with Amber over text'. There was so much more to it.

"We were in person, we were FaceTiming, there was phone calls, back and forth, and then just one thing comes out. There's no point in even fighting it because you're just fighting a losing battle."

However, he added that he has now made amends with Amber after a number of private conversations.

He continued to tell the publication: "Me and Amber have spoken privately, I don't think anyone really knows this.

"We've spoken privately since and we're both like yeah, no hard feelings, we probably could have dealt with the situation better.

"We get on and there's no hard feelings, that’s all that matters really," he added.

During an appearance on Loose Women just days after the split, Amber said: "Obviously I'm really disappointed, I wasn't expecting it at all.

"I was due just that weekend just gone to fly out to Dublin and spend the weekend with him and we were going on a TV show together and on that day I had to cancel because it wasn't working out.

"But yeah, I just think, you know the career and the distance was always a factor, it was always something that we knew about so I don't know what changed. I wanted to make it work but it is what it is really."
