Laura Anderson and Paul Knops 'split'

Share article:

Love Island's Laura Anderson and Paul Knops have reportedly split up.

The pair are believed to have parted ways as their busy work schedules and hectic lifestyle have kept them apart since they left the villa in July.

An insider told The Sun Online: "Laura and Paul have been so busy since the show finished and both had holidays planned without each other - so have ended up spending a lot of time apart.

"Paul went to New York for modelling work and on to Burning Man while Laura enjoyed some time back in Dubai where she lived before signing up to "Love Island"."

According to the source, the stars of the ITV2 dating show will address the end of their relationship when the time is right.

They added: "They saw each other on Saturday night but only for a personal appearance and things weren't the same between them so they have decided to cool off their romance.

"Neither of them will be ready to speak about their split in public just yet but they may well do later this week once it has sunk in."

While they were "exclusive", the pair previously said they had no immediate plans to move in together because there was a lot of "pressure" on them as a couple.

The 29-year-old beauty said previously: "We are exclusively seeing each other, we're not speaking to anyone else or anything like that, but I just think there is a lot of pressure on us."

And the 31-year-old hunk replied during their joint TV interview: "It's not like we've sat down and said we're boyfriend and girlfriend, although I guess we are. I guess it is what it is."

Laura said of their housing situation: "We're not going to be moving in with each other just now, I'm going to get my own place and Paul is going to get his place back and we're going to be close by ... I'm homeless at the moment, I had been living in Dubai."

Paul replied: "I'm waiting to get my apartment back, but we are spending as much time as we can together."

Laura had planned to take Paul to her home away from home, Dubai, later this year.

She said: "For me I really want Paul to see my life there as that's a big part of me, so if we have time with work commitments I'd really like to take him and November is a nice time to go as it's not like a sauna."
