Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran’s romance is in trouble, just eight months after they fell for each other on Love Island.
HOAR has learned that Chloe, 25, and Toby, 23, are fighting to save their relationship after they hit the rocks recently.
According to a source close to the pair, they are struggling to make things work in the real world, despite their best intentions.
“Chloe and Toby really love each other but their relationship has come under some strain in recent weeks,” says the insider.
“They are both really busy with work, so they haven’t seen as much of each other, and there is the added pressure of transferring a reality TV romance into everyday life. It’s not easy.”
It hasn’t helped that Chloe has been busy training for ITV ‘s upcoming reality show, The Games.

HOAR exclusively revealed that the star has been drafted in as a reserve for the series, and is putting the hours in to make sure she is ready should she need to step in.
But while things are rocky between Chloe and Toby at the moment, they haven’t given up on trying to save their relationship.
“They are still talking regularly and hoping to work things out,” adds our source.
“It’s encouraging that they are communicating and who knows, perhaps taking a bit of time apart will make them much stronger in the end?
“Only time will tell, but neither of them wants to admit defeat. They don’t want people to see their romance as another reality TV casualty, because they’ve always been the real deal as a couple.”
Chloe and Toby sparked split rumours recently after not appearing on each other’s social media profiles for weeks.
Fans were concerned and posted messages for the pair.
One wrote on one of Toby’s instagram posts: “Where’s Chloe Toby?”
And another said: “Would be lovely to see a post of you and Chloe, it’s been a while. You 2 are my favourite couple!”
Chloe and Toby fell for each other last summer on the hit ITV2 series, and moved in together just three months after the show finished filming.
Sharing the news in November, the duo revealed they’d settled on a £1m property that was once owned by Henry VIII.

He said: “Chloe keeps saying it all in her interviews about us getting married. I think she’s just having a laugh with it.
