The nation wept as Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies announced that their four-month long relationship was over.

They obviously met on 2017's Love Island and even bloody won it. Yes, they had their ups and downs (remember Chyna?!) but damn, we had hope.

For those of us who backed them, it made this gorgeous moment pretty bitter sweet...

They announced a joint statement to OK! Online, saying: "With sadness, we've decided to separate."

"We fell in love in the villa and want to thank all the fans of the show for supporting us. Our schedules made it difficult. We'll remain good friends."

Kem initially broke his silence first on social media by posting a touching Instagram tribute to his mum captioned: "Happy birthday to my rock @figencetinay don't know what I'd do without you xxx Family is everything."

Amber then had her say, and thanked all of her followers for the support they'd shown the pair since they announced the end of their relationship.

Writing on Twitter, the reality star said: "Would just like to say I am incredibly overwhelmed by everyone's lovely messages and comments. The love and support from you all has been absolutely heartwarming. Thank you so much."

Kem's now released a new statement as a direct result of the comments and love he's received from fans.

He wrote: "It's been a tough week, but I just wanted to thank everybody who has been so kind and supportive, the messages have proper kept me going. Unfortunately things didn't work out but I know Amber will do amazing and I'll always be proud of her x".

Aww. How sweet. I wish all ex-boyfriends were that nice following a break-up.

However, fans are keen for the couple to get back together.

One fan wrote on Kem's Instagram: "Hope u and Amber get back together Kem. No relationship ever runs smoothly. Your gonna have to compromise and yeah there will be bumps in the roads but you both are loyal to each and love each other @kemcetinay you can get through anything. Don't let your soul mate get away that easily without a fight. Every relationship has issues although never thought you guys would. Amber is soo sweet don't let her go.[sic]"

Another wrote: "I hope you and @amb_d can sort things she's stunning and you look so good together you were amazing on love island my fav couple.. don't let her go without a fight kem.[sic]"
