The couple called it quits after Danica, 21, was pictured kissing TOWIE’s Roman Hackett, 20, on Saturday despite being in a relationship with footballer Jamie, 27.

A source told MailOnline: “Danica and Jamie have gone their separate ways.
“They have yet to make their relationship official, but have decided they haven’t quite worked together romantically.
“Jamie has just signed for a new football team and Danica is busy pursuing endless possibilities after leaving the Love Island villa and sadly they have drifted apart.
“They are still good friends and will continue to support each other in everything they do.”
Danica was spotted kissing Roman, who stars in the latest series of TOWIE, on Saturday morning after he dropped her off at a train station.
MailOnline has reached out to Danica and Jamie’s representatives for comment.

A source close to Danica added to MailOnline that Danica and Roman are just friends and there is nothing romantic between them.
The former couple is yet to comment publicly on their split, but have not posted about each other on Instagram since early August.
They starred in a loved-up magazine photoshoot after leaving the ITV2 mansion and told the publication they believed their relationship would last a long time.
Danica also admitted that the “salon,” an analogy the cast used this year to describe intimate acts, was “completely candid” with Jamie.
This week, Jamie announced on Instagram that he has signed with football team AFC Telford United.
Meanwhile, Danica has enjoyed attending celebrity events in London, like the Married At First Sight UK Launch Party, and has promoted brands like Pretty Little Thing on her Instagram.

Love Island viewers admired Danica and her resilience when it came to dating after she was rejected by the likes of Luca Bish, Jay Younger and Billy Brown.
In one episode, Danica collapsed after Billy didn’t pick her during a game of Marry, Snog, or Pie despite being paired.
Sh sobbed: “I’m in the same situation once again and I don’t want to get upset but I’m literally sick of it because I’m like what? Why? Why didn’t I deserve this? I do not understand.
“Not one person really wants to get to know me romantically. I just do not understand.’
