Love Island’s Belle Hassan and Anton Danyluk saddened their fans when it was revealed they had split.
However, 21 year old Belle has said that she and Scottish Anton still speak every day and are firm friends.
The makeup artist also told The Sun Online that she won’t rule out a reunion in the future with 24 year old Anton.
Speaking at the launch of co-star Maura Higgins’ boohoo collection in London on Thursday night, Belle said: “It’s been hard.
“We were going three days at a time without speaking, but now we probably speak more than we ever did.
“I think it’s because there’s no pressure. We can just get on how we did before.
“We’re friends and talk every day, he’ll ring me up to see how I’m doing.”
Belle went on to say that fan-favourite Anton got caught up in the fame and partying after he left the villa, having been an original islander in the latest series of the hit ITV2 show.
She explained they could go up to three days without talking, but despite this, she says there is hope for them as a couple in the future.
She said: “He just got caught up with everything, like fame and going out.
“He wanted to party, party, party and I think he just forgot about me a little bit. That’s fine, I understand that.”
She continued: “I have so much love and respect for Anton. He’s helped change my life and we’ve gone through so much together.
“Maybe when our schedules die down there will be something there. You never know. Everything’s such a whirlwind.
“We said let’s wait and see what happens in a couple of months.
“I will never say never, because when people do and then they get back with them they always look like a knob. I wish him nothing but happiness.”
The pair split after Anton went on a lads’ holiday to Ibiza and Belle was left cringing over his snaps with singer Craig David.
Belle’s close friend and fellow islander Lucie Donlan revealed that her pal wass upset that the relationship came to an end.
She told The Mirror: “She’s quite down about it to be honest, she did really like him. I’m surprised and gutted that they’ve ended things. But she’s busy and Anton is busy so it must be hard.
“I think it’s so mad when you come out. You just don’t expect it.
“Anton is away a lot, Belle is in London, and neither of them have had a long-term relationship before so I think they found that hard.”
Anton is said to have dumped Belle over the phone after she felt “awkward” over his fascination with Craig David.
Sources revealed that Anton and Belle were “never that serious” and that he rang her to end things after jetting off on his lads’ holiday.
An insider told The Sun: “Anton always made it clear to Belle that he wants to take things slowly.
“They were just seeing how things went, as far as Anton was concerned it wasn’t a proper relationship as he’s been at home in Scotland and working so much he had no free time.
“He gets back from Ibiza today but he and Belle mutually decided over the phone that they’re better off just being friends moving forward.
“Anton is happy to remain single at the moment as he is so busy, he can’t commit to anybody right now.”
Anton was reportedly ecstatic after his friends surprised him with a holiday to watch Craig David perform, and he had “no idea” that he would be leaving the country without Belle.
A source explained: “Anton has been working really hard since he left the villa, he has been on a 40-date tour and is really busy working on a big project which will be announced next week.
“His mates wanted him to take a breather and organised a surprise trip on his only three days off.”
Another source revealed that Belle felt “awkward” over Anton’s fascination with Craig David, leading to the split.
They revealed: “His obsession with Craig David made her feel awkward. He seemed to be more excited about reuniting with Craig than speaking to her.”
Belle is said to have seen snaps online of Anton and Craig partying together and instantly knew the relationship was over.
The source continued: “Belle has seen all the pictures and videos of Anton in Ibiza and now just wants out.
“She feels he’s disrespecting their relationship and can’t see him changing his ways.”
