Luca Bish supported by Love Island co-stars as he shares update after Gemma Owen split

Love Island alum Luca Bish received support from some of his former co-stars after sharing an update with fans just days after it was revealed he has split from Gemma Owen.

It was announced earlier this week that Luca, 23, and Gemma, 19 - who met on the ITV2 show - were no longer in a relationship, just months after leaving the villa together.

Gemma broke the news on Instagram on Wednesday (November 16) evening, with Luca confirming the news to The Mirror after Gemma's post.

He shared an update on the platform tonight, which has prompted supportive messages from some of his former co-stars including Andrew Le Page, 27, and Dami Hope, 26.

It has amassed almost 150,000 likes on the platform since it was uploaded earlier tonight. Some of his followers left messages of support for him in the comments section.

His former co-star Andrew proposed a reunion, writing: "Get up to London soon brother". Luca replied, teasing the possibility, responding to his pal: "See you soon bro".
