Laura Anderson, who finished second in Love Island 2018, has confirmed the end of her relationship with Dane Bowers, a former actor on Another Level.

Laura has announced that she will return to the United Kingdom. The couple, who have been dating on and off since 2018, had recently moved to Dubai together.

Laura announced that she and Dane had "decided to split" after five years of dating in a tweet to followers on social media.

"Just to let all of my lovely supporters on here know that Dane and I have decided to break up," the former Islander wrote in an Instagram Stories post.

"Thank you all for your continued support," she continued, before implying that the separation has been amicable. "Sadly we're just not right for each other, but I wish him nothing but love."

"I will be returning to the United Kingdom as soon as I can." "Roll on the rest of 2022, [let's] make it count."

Laura and Dane talked about their rekindled romantic relationship last year, with Dane admitting that the couple had even discussed "marriage and babies."

"I should have gotten up before now, in my 40s," Dane said. "There's been a shift in how we decide to live with each other. We're talking about marriage and babies, and we'd like to do that soon.

"This is it. This is proper. This is the One."

Laura, who is equally besotted, said, "There have been a lot of discussions. But marriage and having a big wedding aren't for now."
