Hearing that another Love Island 2018 couple has split up may not come as that big of a surprise.

However, hearing that winners Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham have called it day is nothing less than a huge shock.

The pair claimed the Love Island 2018 crown in complete ease and were touted as the best couple to ever win the ITV dating competition less than five months ago.

Even life on the outside appeared silky smooth, with Jack and Dani moving into the same apartment in London and even joking about getting married.

Well, it’s all over now. But why?

Why Did Dani and Jack Break Up?

Dani Dyer announced that the couple had parted ways in an Instagram post.

According to reports, the pair slowly grew apart since leaving the villa and found it difficult adjusting as a real-life boyfriend and girlfriend couple in the outside world.

In particular, Dani has been very busy launching her own clothing line with In The Style.

Dani’s Instagram post read:

Jack and I have sadly decided to part ways. It’s been an incredible six months, and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but we’ve sadly come to the realisation that it’s not meant to be long term.

We both plan to stay friends. I hope you’ll all understand. Love Dani x.

Did Either Jack or Dani Cheat?


While other Love Island couples – such as Frankie and Samira – broke up due to cheating accusations, Jack and Dani’s split appears to be because of a natural drift apart.

The couple lasted exactly 134 days together since leaving the villa, two days longer than 2017 winners Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies.

Not that they win anything for that two-day accolade…

Did Dani and Jack Get Engaged?

No, although their relationship did appear to be moving along very quickly.

While Dani and Jack did not become engaged, they did move into a flat together in the London Docklands area shortly after leaving the competition.

The pair also took on a new puppy called Sandy.

However, the biggest jaw-dropping act came when Dani pretended that Jack had asked her to marry him on social media.

It was simply a prank set up by Heart FM.

What Has Dad Danny Dyer Said?

Dad of Dani Dyer is Eastenders actor Danny Dyer.

In the Love Island villa, Jack revealed that he was a massive fan of Dani’s dad, admitting that he had a poster of one of Danny’s movies above his bed!

Danny and Jack seemed to click outside of the villa, as the trio attened a handful of West Ham football games together.

Danny is yet to comment on the breakdown of his daughter’s relationship.
