Love Island winner Greg O'Shea has broken his silence after splitting with Amber Gill.
The Irish hunk has slammed claims he ditched the TV babe by texts and insists the split was amicable.
Speaking on Ireland's The Late Late Show, Greg, 24, said: "Don't believe everything you read. Me and Amber have been chatting the last couple days over phone calls. This whole thing about a text isn't true, people just want to sell stories."
Greg also said he was still "mad" about Amber, 22, but that they had to be "realistic" about their busy careers.
He added: "So we're mad about each other, what's not to be mad about?
"She's gorgeous, smart funny, she's the Queen of Love Island for a reason but you need to be realistic about the situation."
Citing distance and different career paths as the reason for the break-up, Greg continued: "She lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course she deserves all of it and I decided to come back to Ireland and do my thing here.
"I'm trying to get to the Olympics with the sevens team, I've got my law exams coming up so we're both so jam-packed busy and you need to take these opportunities by the scruff of the neck."
Greg added: "So we're kind of just being realistic about the situation and protecting our careers and that's where we are at the moment."
Amber is yet to comment on the split but she's been been liking supportive tweets from fans about the situation, including one where Greg was branded a "wasteman".
The couple were together for just five weeks.
The news comes less than 24 hours after fellow islanders Anton Danyluk and Belle Hassan called it quits.

A source told The Sun Online: "Belle has seen all the pictures and videos of Anton in Ibiza and now just wants out.
"She feels he's disrespecting their relationship and can’t see him changing his ways.
"His obsession with Craig David also made her feel awkward.
He seemed to be more excited about reuniting with Craig than speaking to her."
