Speaking on their TV show Jack and Dani: Life After Love Island, the 23-year-old Essex star recalled the moment she shared her break-up statement.

"It was a really horrible thing because I thought we was done and we were over and there was no going back.

"I didn’t realise how much it would affect you Jack, I genuinely didn’t. Obviously, I thought we was over."

She went on to add: "You have to put things out. It’s not like he didn’t know, he knew we were over at that point. It was horrible, I don’t want to upset anyone, it makes me sad."

Jack, who at the time was in a pub with his friends, relieved the moment his girlfriend announced their split: "Everyone started staring at me with their mouths open.

"I looked and you had put that thing up and I just thought ‘f--king hell’ and because everyone was saying it to me I thought it must be real.

"So, the fact that I thought that it was real made me realise actually I don’t ever want to split up with you."

Dani admitted she 'didn't' realise how big' their break-up would be before saying: "I just feel like we’re still really normal people.

"We are stubborn, we’re very hot headed, we say things we don’t mean. Yeah, I did make a mistake and I got a lot of hate and a lot of negativity, so it wasn’t very nice for me.

"I think going forward we should definitely just live in the moment. Take every day as it comes and not worry and not panic about our relationship."

Well, that's that then.

Back in December, the nation was devastated when Dani revealed she'd split from Jack on Instagram. At the time she released a statement saying: "Jack and I have sadly decided to part ways.

"It's been an incredible six months, and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but sadly we've come to the realisation that it's not meant to be long term.

"We both plan to stay friends. I hope you'll all understand. Love Dani x"

But days later her dad denied that they'd split and explained, on the Jonathan Ross Show, what really happened: "I just want to put something to bed. She hasn’t split up with Jack, that’s all b------s, that is.

"Jon, they’ve had a row. They’ve had a row, she’s got a bit emotional and I think she has whacked that [message] up and immediately regretted it."
