Former Love Island winner Greg O’Shea has revealed he was cheated on by two of his ex-girlfriends.
The Limerick star chatted to Charleen Murphy and Ellie Kelly on their podcast Hold My Drink, where he revealed he was planning to propose to the woman he was dating before he went on Love Island.
“Before my last relationship, I dated a girl for four years and I was so emotionally involved with her that I wanted to propose to her,” he said.
“I was head over heels in love with her… That was before Love Island.
“We haven’t spoken to each other since the day we broke up… That’s a long story… We might as well be dead to each other. We don’t speak in any way, both [my exes].”
The rugby player said he was “tired of women”.
“The long story is that they both met people behind my back. It happened to both of them twice,” he said.
“I would be polite to them if I saw them, but that’s why I’m tired of women. I can’t do it again. It’s so much emotional investment and then getting burned twice.”

He went on to say that he’d like to meet someone the “traditional way.”
“I’m really traditional, I love having a girlfriend. I love having a girl I care about and taking care of her. And all my buddies are getting engaged, getting houses, and I’d really like that, but I haven’t found anyone to do that with yet.
“I’ve never done dating apps, it’s never been my thing… I’d much rather approach someone and ask them out, which really amazes girls these days.
“So yeah, I haven’t gotten back into the dating world yet… I’m exhausted.”
In January this year, the 27-year-old split from his girlfriend of two years, Kate Hutchins.
He said at the time: “I’m exhausted from my last relationship.”
“She was amazing but we just put so much work into making it happen and in the end we realized we wanted different things. I was heartbroken.
“Right now I’m just trying to lick my wounds and pick myself up. We’ll see maybe later in the year but right now I’m just exhausted from the whole love story.”
Before dating Kate, Greg had a short-lived romance with Amber Gill, with whom he won ITV dating show Love Island.
The couple joined the program but Greg reportedly texted the time of their romance just hours before she was due to fly to Ireland to appear with him on the Late Late Show.
