Love Island's Chris Taylor and Harley Brash have split – 'There's no romance'

We've had our first Love Island breakup of the series; Chris Taylor and Harley Brash have split.

29-year-old Chris and 20-year-old are calling time on their relationship, a source close to the couple has confirmed.

They paired up on the reality show and have been dating since it ended in July but have decided that they're not a match.

"Harley and Chris broke up a couple of days ago, it was really amicable and they both agreed they’ll stay friends," the insider told The Sun.

“Sadly there’s no romance there - it was just a holiday fling."

Chris last popped up on Harley's social media just yesterday as she shared a clip they had filmed with clothing brand I Saw It First to her Instagram story.

According to the publication, there's speculation they wanted to keep their breakup quiet for fear of losing out on career opportunities.

Splitting so soon after the show ended is embarrassing, the source continued.

"Nobody wants to be the first couple to split up - it’s embarrassing and there’s so much pressure to stay together to make money.

“It’s all over but they don’t really want fans to know that - they’d rather someone else split up first!”

The news does however mean that Chris is now single, so excuse us while we go and practice our salmon.
