Love Island couple Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey have yet to speak since their split earlier this month.
The winners of last year's ITV2 series parted ways after just under a year together.
Chatting about how it all ended this week, Cara suggested that they moved too fast by moving in with one another following the end of Love Island last year.
"People would tell us we were moving too quick and, on reflection, they were right," she said. "When we came off Love Island, we were thrown into this world where we were known only as a couple, and everything centred around being that couple."
Cara moved to Essex with Nathan but quickly felt homesick.
She explained: "I didn’t have any of my real friends or family around me, whereas Nath did. So I was in the flat all the time, and you just get agitated."
Cara shared with Reveal magazine: "I’d end up coming home to Mum’s for a couple of days or going to stay with Olivia [Buckland, fellow Love Islander] because we’d need to spend time apart, away from the arguments."
Cara says that the rows became more an more explosive to the point that Cara moved out and the couple called time on their relationship.
She admitted: "We haven’t really spoken to each other since then. My mum went to pick my stuff up from the flat."
And in a candid chat, the recent TOWIE guest star confessed: "If I was given a magic wand, I’d go back to our time after Love Island, and we wouldn’t have moved in together.
"We’d go back to dating and take it slower. I think then we’d still be happy."
