Despite finishing Love Island in second place and being smart, funny and drop-dead gorgeous, Love Island's Laura Anderson has had a bit of a rough time of things when it comes to her love life. First she was betrayed by Wes Nelson and Jack Fowler in the villa, both of whom mugged her off for other girls. Then, when it seemed she'd made it third time lucky with late entrant to the villa Paul Knops, the relationship struggled to survive once the cameras stopped rolling.
Laura and Paul announced their split in September, after spending extended holidays apart after leaving the villa. It was sad but Laura quickly bounced back and was soon teasing fans that she had found a new 'mystery man'. This turned out to be none other than Love Island 2015 winner Max Morley - and the couple seemed to be seriously loved-up, even jetting off to Barbados together for a star-studded holiday with Richard Branson.
When it was rumoured that they were on the rocks, Max jumped to blast the claims and defend their relationship on Instagram, writing: 'Whoever the person is calling up the Daily Mail or The Sun please go get a life, it’s embarrassing! Just shows how stories can be fake news! Me and Laura had a fantastic holiday in Barbados and are very much looking forward to Christmas. We would like to keep our relationship as private as possible, to stop stories like this being written. But to clarify me and Laura are good. Merry Christmas.’
10 days later, however, Max and Laura had officially broken up and unfollowed each other on Insta. Oh...
