The reality TV star announced the shock news to her fans on Instagram earlier this morning, after a five year on-off romance with the Another Level singer.
Laura – who appeared on Love Island in 2018 – also revealed her plans to move back to the UK, after previously relocating to Dubai with Dane.
Writing on her Instagram Stories, Laura said: “Just to let all of my beautiful support on here know that unfortunately Dane and I have decided to separate.
“Thank you all for your continued support.

“Roll on the rest of 2022, let’s make it count.”

Their split will come as a shock to many fans, as the couple had previously been open about their desire to marry and have children together in the future.

Both stars had previously publicly discussed their desire to start a family together
The couple have had an on-off relationship since first beginning their romance prior to Laura’s stint on the ITV2 dating show.
She and the pop star rekindled their relationship and made a new life for themselves over in Dubai at the start of 2021.
Speaking on Vicky Pattison’s podcast last year, Laura admitted she has come off the pill in order to try and conceive her first child.
The pair lived together in Dubai throughout their relationship
She told the former Geordie Shore star: “We started trying really quickly. I’ve been on the pill for years – just so long I was on the pill – and I thought, do you know what, this probably is not that good for my body.
“And I was just like ‘Should I just come off it and we won’t 100% try.’
But I got the app so I tracked when I’d be ovulating and he was like ‘If you’re going to come off the pill we may as well track it and do it properly’.”
Laura and Dane often shared snaps of themselves looking loved-up together

At the star of 2021, Dane, 41, spoke of his love for the Love Island babe and how he is sure she was ‘The One’.
He told new! magazine: “I probably should have grown up before now, being in my forties. There’s been a shift in deciding to live with each other.
We’re talking about marriage and babies and we’d like to do that soon. This is it. This is proper. This is the one.
Dane previously said Laura was ‘The One’
He added: “I never gave my all [in previous relationships] so I don’t know if I was totally in love. Which is quite sad really … going through life and not being in love.”
Laura is best known for her stint in the Love Island villa back in 2018.
