Laura Anderson reveals why Paul Knops broke up with her

Laura Anderson thinks Paul Knops broke up with her because they were in a "different place".

The 29-year-old reality star has confirmed she and Paul - who she met on ITV2 show "Love Island" - have split, and she admitted the 31-year-old star ended things with her after he returned from partying in America.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "When we came out of the villa there were a lot of work related things that we did together and then Paul went away for three weeks.

"He went to Burning Man festival in America and he couldn't get a phone signal for a week and I was absolutely fine with that, I trusted him not to do things with other girls, which he didn't.

"I was hoping that when he came back we'd spend more time together and build a proper relationship out of the villa. But it didn't happen.

"Maybe he came back and he was in a different place. The first day I saw him, he had a PA up in Huddersfield and I went with him.

"I thought I'd make the effort otherwise we wouldn't see each other for a while but, well, he broke up with me."

While the two have been in communication since their "calm and mature" break up, the former air hostess admits she doesn't want to see what he's doing on social media so she unfollowed Paul on Instagram.

She said: "I don't want to see what he's up to now because I'm not involved in that. If he needs me he'll call me, but I don't want to watch his stories. You have a look now and again and it torments you!"

Laura and Paul finished second to Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham on "Love Island".

She had her fair share of heartache on the show after coupling up with both Wes Nelson, and then Jack Fowler, but neither romance lasted, and she got close to Paul after he was introduced as a new contestant during the latter stages of the series.
