Kem Cetinay is "still in love" with his ex-girlfriend Amber Davies.
The "Love Island" winners went their separate ways just before Christmas because they were struggling to make their relationship work due to their busy schedules, but he's adamant there's nothing going on between him and his professional "Dancing on Ice" partner Alex Murphy romantically and he's still not over the brunette beauty.
Speaking to heat magazine, Kem said: "I'm still in love with Amber as we've only just split. And, anyway, Alex my partner is ten years older than me and has a boyfriend!"
Since their split, the 21-year-old hunk - who is thought to be on a booze ban while training for the skating show - has decided to stay away from the party scene because he doesn't want to disrespect Amber by "getting with girls" in public.
He explained: "I haven't really been out since me and Amber split up, and it ended very amicably so, out of respect for her, I don't want to be going out partying and getting with girls. I was really upset, and I'm not a big drinker or clubbing person."
And, although they have decided to call time on their short-lived romance for now, Kem hasn't ruled out the possibility of rekindling things with Amber, 21, in the future.
He told the publication when asked about a reunion: "I don't know what's going to happen in the future, but we're having some space right now. Some people prefer having a toxic break up and cutting ties, but I'll always care for Amber."
Kem and Amber - who got together over the summer when they met in the "Love Island" villa - announced their decision to separate in a statement in December.
They said: "With sadness, we've decided to separate.
"We fell in love in the villa and want to thank all the fans of the show for supporting us. Our schedules made it difficult. We'll remain good friends."
