Gemma and Luca split because work and family made them grow apart, says expert

Celebrity dating coach Anna Williamson has revealed a key factor why Love Island finalists Luca Bish and Gemma Owen may have broken up after three months together.

Last week, the raven-haired beauty, 19, shocked fans after she announced her separation from ex-boyfriend Luca Bish, 23.

Now the professional dating expert has revealed one of the main reasons the former flames struggled to make things work on the outside.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star ahead of the new series of Celebs Go Dating set to air on November 28, the mum-of-two explained that many islanders struggle to adjust to life outside the villa because of the number of “distractions”.

She explained: “The problem that a show like Love Island has when it comes to sustained relationships, is that those relationships are built on the 100% eyes on each other with no distractions.

“When you come out of that bubble you have real life that going on around you – that is where the challenge comes in.

“The challenge starts as you try and sustain the connection that you started having in the villa with the other ingredients that come with living your real life: friends and family and work and opinions.”

Anna added: “So, there’s a lot of distractions and variables that can really shake a relationship in its early stages.”

Unlike most couples in the Spanish villa, Luca and Gemma waited until after the series had finished to make their relationship official, so Luca had asked Gemma to be his girlfriend in August.

But sadly, the couple are no longer together with equestrian insisting it was for the best in a short statement on social media.

The TV star went on to explain how the Channel 4 reality dating show Celebs Go Dating is different from the hugely popular ITV show Love Island.

She explained how she and Paul Brunson helped to teach their celebrity clients how to “work on themselves” in order to look for a healthy relationship moving forward.

Anna added: “We are teaching our celebrities to work on themselves and their foundations so that they have all of that set before they enter into a relationship.

“And that is how you create a sustained relationship by working on those foundations and working through those distractions and life variables when they hit you.”

Celebs Go Dating starts on November 28 on E4 at 9pm.
