Was it all just a big showmance? Surely not?
It seems as though it could already be curtains for the winners of Love Island 2015, with the winning couple, Jessica Hayes and Max Morely, already stating they’re not as loved up as some may have though.
The pair won the ITV2 series on Wednesday night after six weeks inside the Love Island villa, enjoying each others company, and battling it out to sharing the show’s £50,000 prize fund.
However the pair have been quick to play down their romance, stating that they’re not officially boyfriend and girlfriend, after saying they were on the show, and were sleeping together.
Speaking to Mirror Online, 22-year-old Jess admitted “We have a laugh together but we are not madly in love or anything like that.”
Of a future with Max, Jess also shot down the pair moving in anytime soon.
“We are not going to move in together or anything like that – it’s a bit soon.”
They narrowly beat runners-up Jonathan Clark and Hannah Elizabeth, who had got engaged during a commitment ceremony task earlier that day, to win the series.
After host Caroline Flack announced them as the winners, she asked them to separately chose between ‘love’ or ‘money’ after handing them secret envelopes. Fortunately, both of them opted for ‘love’, which meant they had the £50,000 to share.
If they had opted for money, they wouldn’t have received a penny.
Gloucester based Jess lives around 200 miles from Max in Yorkshire so distance could be an issue, however the Page 3 model insisted: “I’ve been in a long-distance relationship before and I think they can work out better sometimes. Anyway, I travel a lot with my job.”
In related news, Max has revealed that Jess’ love rival in the villa Naomi Ball tried it on with his younger brother!
He told The Sun newspaper: “I have no interest in talking to her [Naomi]. But she actually tried to get in contact with my little brother.
“She put loads of smiley and winkie faces on a Twitter pic of him. If he’s got half a brain cell he won’t go for her.”
