ELLIE Brown has split from Michael Griffiths, sharing with fans that “she “does not have a boyfriend”, days after Michael insisted she was the “one”.
Taking to Instagram, she shared a video and told fans: “I want to clear up that I do not have a boyfriend. I did not find the one, and that picture is from five months ago – we all have pictures together.”
She concluded: “I do not have a boyfriend.”
The former Love Island pair got together last year after filming the MTV reality show and 28-year-old Michael recently opened up about their relationship claiming he was well and truly smitten.
He told The Sun Online: Ellie and I did form a good bond on the show. The relationship we built was unbelievable.
To have someone as amazing as her in my life means so much. I’m head over heels and I’m not letting her go.
The pair are thought to have been dating since 2019
Michael called her “the one”
Discussing how romance blossomed on the show, which kicked off on Tuesday, he said: Initially I just opened up to her because we were both from up north, she was a friendly face and I guess we have a lot in common both being on Love Island.
“She instantly felt like home.
But then it grew into a lot more. She helped me open up and believe in myself a lot more.
Ellie hooked up with Charlie Brake on the 2018 version of the ITV2 dating show before splitting in a bitter break up months later.
But Ellie has insisted they are “not together”
Ellie has stayed close friends with other islanders Belle Hassan and Laura Anderson
Michael famously dumped Amber Gill on Love Island last summer and coupled up with Joanna Chimonides.
But when she was voted out of the villa he didnt go with her and then later tried to get back with Amber who rejected him for Greg O’Shea.
Michael shared he was “hesitant” about signing up for Ex On The Beach because of his past experiences.
I didn’t know if I was going to be painted out as the villain again or whether I would be able to change peoples perceptions of me”, he said.
