Former Love Island winner Liam Reardon has revealed that he was the one to call time on his relationship with ex-Millie Court.
The 23 year old, who is currently starring in E4's Celebs Go Dating, told the show's experts that he ended things because he wanted to work on himself as he struggled to juggle a relationship, a career and his newfound fame.
He went on to confess that he instigated the break-up to gain clarity on his life, saying he had to learn to "love himself" before he could love Millie, 24.
Love expert Anna Williamson asked Liam about his time in the Love Island villa. He replied: "In the villa everything was stripped back, you've just got each other, and I fell in love with Millie, and we just went from strength to strength."
Paul Carrick Brunson then pressed Liam on what he thought went wrong in the relationship.
Liam, who was recently forced to deny new romance rumours, explained: "I moved straight from Wales to Essex to be with Millie, leaving all my family and friends.
"The life I did have is almost not there. It's been a rollercoaster, I went from a small life in Wales, being a bricklayer – to being catapulted into this new life and I found it difficult.
"You're trying to give 100 per cent to each other, you're trying to give 100 per cent to yourself, you're trying to give 100 per cent to this new life and career and it's hard to juggle everything at once."
Paul continued to quiz the reality star on how his romance with Millie ended, to which Liam replied: "I instigated it because if we want to be together, I want to be 100 per cent together.
"For me to love her, I need to love myself and for the past few months I need to find myself a bit again. Just never say never, in the future we could rekindle."
Liam then revealed that his decision left a heartbroken Millie feeling "upset".
He said: "Yeah, upset…upset. Like I was.
"You know it's one of those things, you've had such an amazing experience together and you don't want it to end, it's a tricky one."
Speaking to The Sun, he explained how despite their break up the former Islanders do still keep in touch. He also explained how he only had 'good things to say about her'.
At the Celebs Go Dating launch night he told the publication: "I don't know, you don't know what will happen in the future.
"All I know she is a lovely person; she makes a great girlfriend, but our timing right now wasn't right for us.
"So, who knows what's going to happen in the future."
