The last couple standing from Season 2 of Love Island has officially called it quits.
Despite not going the traditional route on the show, Mackenzie Dipman and Connor Trott were the last islanders left making their summer romance work outside of the villa.
However, the two recently announced in a joint statement their decision to separate due to the large distance between them.
The last couple from Love Island Season 2 has officially called it quits
Although this couple technically didn’t leave the villa together, Connor’s first stop after his departure was traveling to Arizona to reunite with the blonde who stole his heart.
Since getting back together after the show, from the video calls to the visits, the couple has documented their long-distance romance for Love Island fans to see.
Nonetheless, fans were shocked to find out via an Instagram story that the two had ended their relationship.
Starting off the statement, the couple writes, “Some of you have been wondering about us and our relationship, so we want to help you understand where we are right now.”
“We are both young and in the early stages of careers, and sadly those careers are keeping us in two different places.”
Noting that Mackenzie’s life is set in Arizona while Connor has roots in Pittsburgh, “Ultimately we both realized that our lives are moving in different directions. We have both made commitments to cities that are over 2,000 miles apart.”
It’s clear the two ended on good terms as the post ended, “We are unsure of what the future holds for us, but one thing for certain, we will always have each other. And we will forever be grateful that Love Island brought us together.”
The latest in a string of Love Island break-ups
The end of Mackenzie and Connor marks the end of the final relationship out of Love Island Season 2.
Earlier this year, fans saw the messy breakup of first place finishers Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew and also the end of runner-ups Johnny Middlebrooks and Cely Vazquez.
While the UK version of the show has produced successful relationships, the country is also considerably smaller.
However, that’s not stopping producers, as rumor has it, casting has already begun for Season 3. While the coronavirus pandemic forced Season 2 in a Las Vegas bubble, the next villa is destined for the islands of Hawaii.
