Love Island winner Amber Gill Rose (21) has moved in with her fellow contestant Anna Vakili for support in the wake of her split from Limerick rugby player Greg O'Shea (24).
Mystery surrounds the circumstances leading to their sudden break-up last week, after Amber insisted Greg did end their relationship by text.
The Newcastle woman said she was "doing good" this week as she enjoyed her newly single status at the TV Choice Awards in London on Monday night.
She cut a glamorous figure as she told reporters she was now living with Anna as she moves on from trainee solicitor and Rugby Sevens star Greg.
"I've moved in with Anna, which is lovely, she's been with me from the start," she said.
Amber said she has been bowled over by the support she has received since winning the reality dating show.
"I think because I was there for so long I had no idea what I was coming out to, so the amount of love and support I've received has been amazing," she said.
"I think I went in the villa with about 4,000 Instagram followers, then I came out with two million and now I've got three million and it's crazy and everyone recognises you, but I'm so happy."
Speaking on Loose Women earlier in the week, she said her romance with Greg did end with a text, despite her being keen to continue a long-distance relationship.
"From my point of view, I kind of still wanted to make it work, and there was a call a few days prior just chatting, not specifically to do with that," she said.
"But definitely on that day the relationship ended, it was like a text.
"Basically, all I wanted was a bit of effort from him to come to London or Newcastle, to come and see me, and I was like, 'Oh, I'm going to have to give up if you don't put the effort in', and then he was like, 'Okay, bye'.
"I think there was a bit of miscommunication, but I think if you don't want to be with someone, you don't want to be with someone."
Their split appears to have come very suddenly, given that Greg flagged Amber's appearance on the Late Late Show in his Instagram stories only two days previously.
The programme was left scrambling to replace her after she pulled the plug on the booking after news of the split emerged.
"By chance, Curtis Pritchard was in Dublin for another booking and came on to the show with Maura Higgins instead.
Greg took the opportunity to set the record straight with Ryan Tubridy, saying: "Don't believe everything you read.
"Me and Amber have been chatting the last couple of days. The whole thing about a text isn't true - people just want to sell stories.
"So we're mad about each other. I'm mad about her. What's not to be mad about? Gorgeous, smart, funny, personality - the Queen of Love Island for a reason."
Greg took to his Instagram account yesterday to talk about mental health awareness on World Suicide Prevention Day.
"Life can be tough sometimes, we just have to stick together," he said.
