Love Island 2021 winners Millie Court and Liam Reardon have gone their separate ways after a year-long romance. The couple broke up in peace and would continue to be friends in the future.
According to the Dailymail, Love Island 2021 winners Millie Court and Liam Reardon have parted ways. Their decision came less than one year after the pair won the ITV2 reality dating show last August. The exact reason why the Love Island couple ended their relationship hasn't been revealed, however.
Mille and Liam had split in peace
SkyNews writes that Millie, 25, and Liam, 22, took to Instagram last Wednesday to announce the news. The former couple both share similar statements telling fans that they had split in peace so as to avoid unwanted speculation.
English reality star Millie Court shared the news on her Instagram account, admitting their separation was a 'tough decision'. She wrote:
'Hi everyone, to avoid any speculation Liam and I wanted to share with you that we have separated. It's been a tough decision and I am gutted but it's ultimately what is best for us right now. Thank you to every single one of you for supporting our relationship.'
The media personality went on to credit her time in the show as 'amazing' and wish her ex-partner all the best, telling her 1,9 million followers on Instagram:
'Nothing will ever take away from the amazing experience we shared in Love Island and the past year and I wish Liam all the best in everything he does. We're both ready for new chapters and I'm excited for what's next. Love, Millie.'
Meanwhile, Liam also released a similar statement and said he and Millie would remain good friends after the split. The Welsh reality star said:
'We both will continue to be friends and I will remain Millie's biggest supporter in all that she does and I know she will always do amazing.'
Liam also said thank you to his fans and admitted his Love Island experience since had been 'an incredible journey'.
'We're both ready for new chapters and I'm excited for what's next. Again, I just want to thank you all for supporting us on what's been an incredible journey.'
The couple had a rough time on Love Island
During their time in the Love Island villa in the show's 2021 series, Millie and Liam had a few hiccups after the famous Casa Armor challenge.
Things took a dramatic turn after Liam kissed and had a dalliance with 'bombshell' troublemaker Lilie Haynes during his time in the new villa. The news was later revealed to Millie as Liam headed back to the original villa to reunite with his girl. Much to fans' surprise, Millie, who had remained loyal to Liam since entering the show, eventually forgave Liam's wrongdoing. The pair went on to win the series, earning a massive 42 percent of the vote and beating fellow finalists Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran to bring home the £50,000 prize.
On the final day of Love Island, Millie and Liam said 'I love you' for the first time and had officially dated since. The winners even discussed their future, with Millie saying: 'The proposal is going to have to be massive'.
With Liam from Wales and Millie from Essex, the couple had been maintaining a long-distance relationship before moving in together in an Essex home last November. They made several red carpet apperances together before deciding to call it quits on their year-long romance.
Throughout its history, Love Island has paired plenty of couples, some of whom manage to stand the test of time and have admirable marriages. With their recent split, however, Millie and Liam would fall on the list of Love Island couples who are no longer together, alongside the likes of Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea, and Demi Jones and Luke Mabbott.
