Everyone’s talking about… Dani and Jack from Love Island 

Oh my God. Don’t panic but there are rumours that Dani and Jack have hit a rough patch. 

The rumours have come from sources going to the tabloids of course, but Jack and Dani are having none of it. Speaking to OK! , a spokesperson gave the following statement for the couple.

We try not to pay too much attention to all the gossip. We’re just really happy at the moment and are enjoying spending so much time together filming our new show.

So, there you have it. Rest easy.
