Montana Brown has confirmed she has split from Alex Beattie.
The 21-year-old graduate has announced she has gone her separate ways from the 22-year-old personal trainer, just a few weeks after they left the 'Love Island' villa.
In a short statement posted to her Twitter account, Montana wrote: "Alex and I have decided to split. Making our relationship work on the outside has been hard.
"He hasn't been the same since coming out of the villa. Despite this we are still close and I will always support him."
Whilst Alex added in his own post: "Me and Montana met yesterday and have decided that it's best to call it a day with relationship with each other. It's been very hard on the outside to make us work how we desired. I still have strong feelings towards her and will be remaining close friends and supporting her throughout everything."
A source had previously claimed that Montana and Alex had gone their separate ways as she is very "ambitious".
They said: "Montana is keen to follow her dreams as a TV presenter and has been attending meetings this week to get the wheels in motion. She doesn't like partying and isn't a big drinker so personal appearances in nightclubs aren't really her thing. Instead she is ambitious and very much a career woman - her relationship with Alex is going to take a back seat."
News of the split comes not long after Montana admitted she was not in love with Alex.
Asked if she loves him, she said: "I don't love Alex yet, no. I'm really true to myself. I don't want to just say it if I don't mean it."
