Love Island might be all about the romances but it’s the friendships that stand the test of time.

It’s now been a few weeks since Love Island runner-ups Gemma Owen and Luca Bish split, and the pair have kept quiet since. But thanks to fellow islander Davide Sanclimenti, we know how Luca handled the breakup.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Italian Stallion revealed he had been comforting pal Luca amid the split, sharing how hard it was for him in the beginning.

Explaining: “He was not really okay but he is now and he is getting better and I feel like I told him, ‘You had an amazing experience together and had a lovely time but if it’s not something that’s going to work then Gemma will find someone who is meant for her and you will find someone meant for you so there is no reason to be sad’.”

Sharing advice from his own experience, Davide said: “I always say, ‘If it’s meant to be for me then it will be for me.’ I realise this with Ekin-Su and things outside the villa with her are getting better and better each day.”

Gemma and Luca shared news of their breakup on social media, with Luca throwing some shade Gemma’s way after he hinted at not being aware that the news was being put out.

“I would have liked some time to process this privately but as you all already now know, sadly Gemma and I made the mutual decision earlier today to go our separate ways,” he posted on his Instagram story.

Gemma released a statement to her Instagram hours before saying, “To all my followers, I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship.

“It wasn’t an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for us both right now. Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning, and I want to thank you for your continued support as we start new chapters. Love always, Gem x.”

Meanwhile Davide also opened up about his own Love Island romance. Sharing how excited he is to be back behind the camera with girlfriend Ekin-Su, for the pair’s new reality series, Homecomings.

Saying: “We are so exciting, the filming went well. The ITV team were amazing, we already knew some of them so we felt like we weren’t recording or filming.

“We felt very natural and there were an awful lot of funny moments. The best moment and probably the most emotional moments for me is when, in Italy, Ekin-Su met my family and when I go to Turkey to meet her family. These are probably the two most emotional moments.

“I was not so nervous meeting Ekin-Su’s family because I met her mum in the villa and I met her dad when I came out of the villa so I feel like I have met the two most important people inside the family before the show ended.”

The show will be hitting screens on Monday night.
