Love Island's Alex Beattie will "never get back" together with Montana Brown.
The 22-year-old hunk - who struck up a romance with the brunette beauty inside the villa over the summer - is adamant he'll never give the wannabe presenter another chance because it wouldn't be a "healthy" relationship after their split at the end of August.
Speaking to The Sun Online, Alex said: "Montana said we talk regularly but we haven't spoken in a month. I don't know where it came from. She said "never say never" about us but that was news to me! She must be texting the wrong number! I would never get back with her. It's over! If went back to the way it was, it wouldn't be healthy anyway."
Although he's adamant he doesn't want to get back with her, Alex has asked the 22-year-old star to stop playing with his feelings because he's still "hurting."
He said: "I was hurt when she said that about us possibly getting back together ... I want her to stop playing with my feelings and to stop talking about me. She knows how I felt about her and how much I cared. I find it hard to talk about. She made me single, so now I am. I've got no pressure now and I can just focus on myself and do the best I can."
The pair called time on their relationship just weeks after they left the famous villa because their careers were pulling them apart, but Alex was willing to "fight" for her.
He explained: "I had super strong feelings for her in the villa and when we came out. I was gutted when she ended it, I wasn't expecting it. It was more her, I was willing to fight. I was going to cancel PAs but she's a strong woman, she wanted to do her own thing. I expected her to give it more of a chance or to fight for it more. It was so intense in there and to come out and for it to be nothing - that was hard."
Despite his heartbreak, Alex is open to finding love again but doesn't want to rush it.
He added: "I'm open to a relationship but I'm just seeing what comes along."
