We loved Alex Beattie and Montana Brown as a couple. They were pretty adorable. Well, most of the time. I don't really remember Alex speaking that much, but they were cute. But then, as these things tend to, it went up in flames.

After the split, Mon went on to become the face of fashion brand Pretty Little Thing while Alex... well. Let's allow my favourite video to do the talking...

Oh Alex. I still can't watch it without cringing/laughing but it's addictive.

Anyway, now Montana has revealed to MailOnline that she and Alex still really get on and could potentially get back together.

She said: "We call each other still and we're still on good terms - we do really get on.

"We have a lot of things in common. We both like going to the gym, we both really clicked in the villa."

Explaining the reason behind their split, she said: "As soon as we came out the distance was a really big issue. I'm not someone who would want to see someone all the time anyway, but it was more we weren't seeing each other a lot.

"We knew we would be really, really busy and it was quite early on to start going out with someone."

But then she dropped this absolute bombshell: "It's just seeing if he moves closer or something like that... never say never."


She then explained that there was a lot more to their break up than we first thought. She continued: "I used to get girls messaging me on Twitter saying, 'I'm with Alex in a club, he's with girls and stuff.' To be honest, I completely trusted Alex, he's a really good guy.

"It's just annoying more than anything else. I think relationship wise I like my private life to stay private and that was the opposite of what happened!"

That can't have been easy, no wonder they found it easier to break up.

Back in August, Mon posted a statement about their split on Twitter. She wrote: "Alex and I have decided to split. Making our relationship work on the outside has been hard. He hasn't been the same since coming out of the villa. Despite this we are still close and I will always support him." Yikes.

Although it seems despite that cutting comment, they could potentially get back together. Or maybe they already are, who knows anymore?!
