Laura Anderson has broken her silence on the split of her Love Island co-stars Charlie Brake and Ellie Brown, revealing the brutal way by which Charlie broke up with her pal.

She said that Charlie released a statement on the split without Ellie's knowledge, and that she was blindsided by the announcement while on a night out at The Best Heroes Awards, which was was attending with Laura.

Laura told The Sun: “She’s fine now but she had no idea whatsoever that was coming.

“I was with her and she just burst into tears.

“I don’t understand it. He did not go about it in the right way in my opinion. It was wrong.”
