Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer were the runaway success story of Love Island 2018, with their chemistry being a hit with viewers from the launch to the live final.
But three months months on from their life-changing win, Jack has revealed the reality of romance in the real world has not been a match made in reality TV heaven.
The former pen salesman has admitted that his relationship with Dani has been blighted with rows – that have left him in tears.
It comes after the couple were reported to be going through a ‘rough patch’ as they filmed their new reality series.
"Filming the show wasn’t easy. It was tough, it was intense – you’re on camera most days of the week all day long," Jack told The Sun.

“We had bickers during filming just like any other couple. I got emotional with Dani doing it; I even had a couple of tear-ups. But Dani and I got through it," he added.
But despite falling out on camera, Jack said his and Dani’s new show would be nothing like that of Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood.
The Love Island 2017 runners up shared their toxic romance and subsequent break-up with fans in their show Cracking On.

Jack said: "We do have arguments but people can’t think the world is going to end because we’ve had a row. It’s a normal thing having an argument."
Jack and Dani’s post Love Island story will air on ITVBe next year as a three part installment.
A source previously revealed that the pair had been going through a ‘rough patch’ but were keeping it together for the sake of their series.
"Dani has been offered so many opportunities since leaving the villa, from her hugely successful clothing range with In The Style to appearances with her dad.
"She has a very busy schedule and is doing incredibly well for herself following Love Island.

"But the more projects Dani takes on the less time she spends with Jack, so tensions between them are mounting.
"A lot is riding on them staying together as they continue to film their reality series – but Dani may not have the patience to stay in the relationship for much longer,” the insider told the Su n.
A spokeswoman for the couple told Mirror Online: "We try not to pay too much attention to all the gossip.
"We’re just really happy at the moment and are enjoying spending so much time together filming our new show."
