Love Island’s Greg O’Shea confirmed that he and Amber Gill have split just 39 days after they won Love Island, as he appeared on The Late Late Show in Ireland on Friday night.
On the RTE One show, rugby player Greg, 24, denied dumping Amber by text message as was earlier reported, citing the split was a mutual decision to protect their careers.
Amber, 22, was due to appear on the show alongside Greg and their fellow islander Maura Higgins, but following her split from her beau, she was replaced by Curtis Pritchard.
Despite Greg saying that his split from Amber was a mutual decision and was one they made over the course of a few days, Amber’s close pal has taken to Twitter to slam him.
Mart Tweedy, who looked after Amber’s social media accounts when she soared to fame in the villa, accused Greg of "pulling wool over everybody’s eyes" in a scathing tweet.
He tweeted: “Like, Greg took that £25k bag and RAN at the first opportunity he could – he pulled the wool over EVERYBODY’s eyes. He would be NOBODY without @AmberRoseGill.
“The night of the final, he had 110k followers, she had 1.9mil. I had to canvas votes SUPER hard to make up for his side.”
When some of his followers replied to his Tweet to ask about how Amber is dealing with the split, Mart said: “She’s a tough cookie.”
Mart’s tweets about Greg are a far cry from the glowing review he gave the Irish hunk when he first entered the Love Island villa during the summer and swept Amber off her feet following her split from Michael Griffiths.
He previously told OK! magazine : “He’s Irish with muscles, what’s not to like?”
“He’s such a gentleman. Her mum thinks he’s a really nice guy. We’re really impressed with him. He’s exactly the type of person Amber would go for. They have the same humour and he gets her banter, which is what she needs.
“I think Michael only wanted her back because he saw her laughing and happy with Greg. He was jealous.
“It would have been difficult for Amber to build trust with Michael. I think it would have brought back memories of when she was hurt in the past.”
During his interview on The Late Late Show, Greg had told host Ryan Tubridy: "Me and Amber have been chatting over the last couple of days and over phone calls, this whole thing about a text message isn’t true, people just want to tell stories.
"We’re mad about each other, I’m mad about her, what’s not to be mad about? She’s gorgeous, smart, funny, personality, the queen of Love Island for a reason.

"But you need to be realistic about the situation, she lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course, she deserves all of it.
"And I’ve come back to Ireland to do my thing here, hoping to get to the Olympics with the Sevens team, I have my law exams coming up, so we’re both so jam packed busy and you need to take these opportunities by the scruff of the neck and be realistic about the situation so we’re protecting our careers, that’s where we are at the moment."
Speaking about their decision to part ways, he continued: "It was over a long time, it wasn’t over a text, it was a couple of days.
"I’m mad about her and I hope she’s mad about me so we’ll see about the future.”
Instead of flying to Ireland to appear on the show with Greg as planned, Amber – who FaceTimed Greg just days ago – remained in the UK.
She has not yet made reference to their split on her social media and enjoyed a girls’ night in London with Anna Vakili, Anna's sister Mandi and Yewande Biala.
