Love Island's Greg says Amber 'can say whatever she wants' about their breakup

"I can be happy with myself that I know the truth."

Love Island's Greg O'Shea has responded to his ex Amber Gill's comments about their split - adding that he "knows the truth" about what happened between them.

Greg and Amber, who won Love Island 2019, split earlier this month - and there's been a lot of back-and-forth about what may (or may not) have gone on between them.

Following Amber's comments about how he broke up with her via text, Greg has now said the beautician "can say whatever she wants" as he "knows the truth" about what happened.

The 24-year-old, who arrived in the villa as the last new contestant for Love Island 2019, was speaking on Ryan Tubridy's Radio One show at the National Ploughing Championships on Tuesday.

He said:

"Amber's doing great stuff over the UK. I can be happy with myself that I know the truth and I know what’s happened.

"I’m not going to badmouth [Amber], she’s got great stuff going on, and I can be happy with myself, my friends, and my family knowing what actually happened.

"She can say whatever she wants, but I wish her the absolute best - she's a great woman."

Previously speaking on the Late Late Show, Greg claimed their split was down to work commitments and the long distance.

However, speaking on Loose Women the following Monday, Amber said she was "disappointed" about how their relationship came to an end.

She said:

"From my point of view I still wanted to make it work. There was a call a few days prior, just chatting, not specifically to do with that.

"I think there was a bit of miscommunication but I think if you don't want to be with someone, you don't want to be with someone.

"All I wanted was a bit of effort from him to come to London or Newcastle to see me. I said I'm going to have to give up if you don't put the effort in.

"And he said, 'OK bye'. I was expecting it to be a bit different.

"Obviously I'm really disappointed. I wasn't expecting it at all. I was due to fly to Dublin and spend the weekend with him and go on a TV show together.

"On that day I had to cancel as it wasn't working out. I think the careers and the distance was always a factor.

"I don't know what changed. I wanted to make it work but it is what it is. I am disappointed it's over. I'm booked and busy and I'll be fine. Onwards and upwards from here."
