Love Island's Harley Brash and Chris Taylor 'split'

Share article:

Love Island's Harley Brash and Chris Taylor have split up.

The love birds have become the first couple of series five - which wrapped just two weeks ago - to go their separate ways less than a month after they were introduced.

The pair are yet to confirm their break up but rumours began to swirl just days ago when funny man Chris was spotted getting cosy to ex-islander Maria Wild at the show's reunion party while Harley glared at them from a pavement across the road.

The 28-year-old hunk put an affectionate arm around Maria - who joined Casa Amor before getting dumped when she failed to find love - as they puffed on a cigarette, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Chris recently said him and Harley were still together but were taking things slow.

He explained: "We are still together, we're taking at our own pace. We haven't had a chat about it, we're moving at the pace that we want to move at, regardless to the situation of people pushing it and stuff. This is a real life situation."

Although fans were rooting for the pair from the moment they were introduced three weeks ago, things got off to a rocky start in the sun-soaked villa when Chris admitted during a challenge that he thought him and India Reynolds were meant to be together.

The innocent revelation led to Harley branding him "disrespectful" and it took a lot of grovelling on Chris" behalf for her to forgive him and agree to give their romance a go.

Despite getting off on the wrong foot, things heated up between them fairly quickly as Harley said after her exit that she was "excited" to see whether things would go.

She said: "I wouldn't have done anything differently. I stayed true to myself.

"It's still really early for me and Chris. We're going to see how things go on the outside.

"He's so lovely and he's so sweet. So, I'm excited to see where it goes."

And Chris added: "Meeting Harley was obviously a highlight.

"It's really early doors for us, we didn't get to spend loads and loads of time together in the villa. It's anyone's guess at the moment.

"It could be a thing but we need to spend more time together in a real-life environment to know whether anything could work."
