Georgia and Sam break up

After a turbulent time on Love Island ( remember THAT kiss?) Georgia finally found her knight in shining armour in Sam Bird.

The couple seemed to be head over heels after exiting the villa, even moving in together, but sadly in October 2018, they decided to call it quits.

The split came after Georgia allegedly went to her ex-boyfriend’s flat in the early hours to collect her belongings.. hmm doesn’t sound very loyal to us.

Georgia is introduced to Medi

Georgia is said to have been introduced to Medi while on a night out with friends sometime in 2019.

The ex-footballer is said to have not known who Georgia was, due to be incarcerated while her series of Love Island was on TV.

Medi was sentenced to four years in prison in 2014 for fraud after he pretended to be ex Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta in order to fund his lavish lifestyle.

 

PDA official

The couple made their love known in April 2019 when they were spotted out together hand in hand.

The pair were seen shopping together on London’s Bond Street and were even caught kissing by paparazzi.

The two stars were then photographed cosied up together in a bar enjoying champagne cocktails.

Medi confirms they are dating

In April 2019 the ex-Derby footballer seemed to confirm that the pair were officially an item in an interview.

Talking to The Sun about their relationship he said that he has been open with Georgia about his time in prison, and said that she doesn’t judge him for his crimes.

Speaking to the newspaper he said:

I told her everything. She wasn’t judgemental. I don’t want her career affected. We like each other, we are getting on she’s a good girl. I’ve apologised to Georgia. I think she wanted to understand how it all went wrong for me. She was shocked. Initially, she was concerned for me. She assumed everyone knew except her.
