Love Island’s Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey have not spoken since the split
Love Island‘s Cara De La Hoyde has opened up about her break-up with Nathan Massey, revealing they haven’t exchanged words since the split.
The winners of the ITV2 dating series called it quits earlier this month, with Nathan announcing on Instagram: “The worst feeling in the world is when you know that you both love each other, but still you can’t be together ! Me and Cara have split, we’ve had the summer of our lives together, but sadly come to a end, I wish her the best for the future 💔”
Now, Cara has had her say on how it all ended. Talking to Reveal magazine, the reality star suggested that they should have taken things slower in hindsight.
“People would tell us we were moving too quick and, on reflection, they were right,” she said. “When we came off Love Island, we were thrown into this world where we were known only as a couple, and everything centred around being that couple.”
Cara explained how she had moved to Essex to be with her man but her missing home impacted negatively on their relationship.
She said: “I didn’t have any of my real friends or family around me, whereas Nath did. So I was in the flat all the time, and you just get agitated.
“I’d end up coming home to Mum’s for a couple of days or going to stay with Olivia [Buckland, Love Island co-star] because we’d need to spend time apart, away from the arguments.”
Cara explained how she eventually reached breaking point as the arguments worsened, eventually deciding to walk away from the romance.
She confessed: “We haven’t really spoken to each other since then. My mum went to pick my stuff up from the flat.”
The recent TOWIE guest star admitted that she would do things very differently if she could go back in time. Cara said: “If I was given a magic wand, I’d go back to our time after Love Island, and we wouldn’t have moved in together.
“We’d go back to dating and take it slower. I think then we’d still be happy.”
Love Island will return this summer for a new series on ITV2.
