Love Island winner Greg O'Shea has finally revealed why he dumped Amber Gill, two months after their big win on the show last year.

With this summer's Love Island scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans of the ITV series will have to wait longer for their usual fix of drama and romance but people are still talking about what happened last year.

Greg and Amber shocked everyone, including themselves, by beating red-hot favourites Molly-Mae and Tommy to win the final public vote, with Love Island viewers hailing Greg for helping Amber get over the heartbreak caused by one-time love interest Michael.

On returning to the UK, Amber brought Greg to Newcastle and took him to a family party at her home in Whickham, before he whisked her away to Ireland, so it then came as something of a surprise when the two broke up, with reports suggesting the rugby player dumped the Geordie beauty therapist by text, something Amber also confirmed herself.

Love Island fans were outraged, so much so that #unfollowgreg trended on Twitter.

But, speaking to Goss.ie, Greg claims there was more to it. He said: "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."

He added: "People kind of got the wrong story, they just saw 'Greg breaks up with Amber of 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."

Taking things further, Greg also revealed that he and Amber have actually spoken since, explaining: "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."
