LOVE Island fans have been rocked by Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins' sudden split.
But there were some subtle clues that the pair had gone their separate ways before the news was made public today.
Firstly, eagle-eyed social media followers spotted Lana, 25, had deleted comments about Ron, 25, from her account.
She recently removed references to the financial adviser and posted about spending time by herself.
Lana wrote in an Instagram story: "I’ve had a couple of days being wholesome and taking some time to myself but got a busy couple of weeks coming up so it’s back to it."
Then there was the issue of living more than 200 miles apart, which Ron said was their biggest challenge.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun at the launch party of Ashley Banjo's fashion range with Peacocks, Ron said: "It's not forever. Every relationship at some point, it's natural to move in together.
"It's weird we get so many questions like 'when are you moving in?' and you're like… baring in mind we've only been together a couple of months, one of her big goals and one of my big goals is to buy a place up there, and down here, have our own bases.
"But right now, we've been out five/six weeks, I think we spend six or seven days apart, everyone sort of grilled me I think for when I said I want to miss her.
"When I'm not with her, it's actually quite hard. It's well hard."

Lana also previously spoke about getting "the ick" when seeing Ron wearing his gaming headset, and the couple were seen arguing on the flight home from South Africa after finishing second in the winter edition.
Today, a source told the Mail that they've decided to call it a day, despite Ron leaving gushing comments on Lana's Instagram posts just a week ago.
A source said: “Lana and Ron really put everything into their romance and have tried to make things work for some time now.
“Unfortunately, they have decided to separate, which is a decision they have made amicably and of course, they still remain good friends.
"Commuting from Manchester to Essex and back again whenever they wanted to spend time together, as well as managing their work commitments just proved too difficult,” they continued.
Ron and Lana didn't have the smoothest of rides in the villa.
The two coupled up on day one, but by day five Ron recoupled with Tanyel Revan to explore their connection.
By day 10 Ron had recoupled again with bombshell Ellie Spence, leaving Lana gutted.
