Love Island host Caroline Flack and The Apprentice's Andrew Brady have split up.

It follows a brief on/off romance between the pair that ended with them getting engaged.

They reportedly met up following Andrew's stint on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year and their relationship has had more ups and downs than an episode of Love Island.

In April it was reported that Caroline had dumped Andrew over cheating claims. But weeks later sources said the couple had reunited - and in May they were ENGAGED.

Caroline shared a snap of the pair of them on Instagram at the time, writing: "He’s put it on my finger and it won’t come off ... so I’ve said yes #chooselove ❤️"

However today the pair announced they had split up.

Caroline said in a statement: "I’m sad to announce that Andrew and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not to be. I wish him all the best. At least there’s a Villa waiting for me. It’s back to the ol’ grafting."

Andrew added: "Sad to announce Caroline and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not meant to be and I wish her all the best in the future."

Caroline had recently hit back at hateful responses to the engagement, saying on Twitter: "I don’t like to speak up on things. But. He’s my boyfriend . And he’s lovely to me. He’s new to this world . No one is perfect.

"Give people a break .... we all f**k up... all of us ... people spend so much time over analysing things ... let it be ... ❤️"

Caroline added: "And while all you weirdos are taking time to write mean comments about someone you don’t know ....I’ll get back to my love nest. 👍🏻"

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Caroline declared: "Other people’s opinions aren’t our reality."

She described her connection with Andrew as "instant", explaining: "I think it was the second day we met! It sounds really weird and at the time I thought, ‘No, don’t be silly brain. Go back in your shell' but when I look back on it that feeling hasn’t changed."

Caroline and Andrew had supposedly met in London shortly after Andrew was evicted from Channel 5's Big Brother in January.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper previously: "I know they’ve been seeing each other for a few weeks with numerous dates. They hadn’t met before Big Brother.

"I know they both went on a date to the same park in London, and both watched the same movie at the cinema on Monday night. It seems they are taking it slow at the moment."

Andrew left Celebrity Big Brother just a week before the final in a triple eviction.

During his time in the house, Andrew struck up a close friendship with eventual winner Courtney Act / Shane Jenek.

After leaving, Andrew now said he wanted to do more reality TV and suggested he could end up on Strictly Come Dancing.

"Fingers crossed that would be amazing," Andrew told the Metro newspaper. "Or maybe MasterChef – I really enjoyed cooking in the house – or Celebs Go Dating."

Meanwhile, on his time with Courtney / Shane said things wouldn't go further on the outside world.

"I had an inkling that he did fancy me, that to me wasn’t a thing," Andrew explained. "As long as you’ve got the right intentions and the right behaviour around each other it’s fine. The fact that Shane admitted he fancied me is nothing to me whatsoever.

"I’m heterosexual and I’ve not got a problem with anyone who isn’t. I do admire Shane and think he’s an amazing character, but for me he was born with the wrong genitals from where I stand"
