In the short footage, which was overlapped with La Roux’s track Bulletproof, Lori exposed messages, which appeared to be from Biggs, where he called his relationship with Rebecca ‘fake’.

Posing at the start of the video, she wrote: ‘Think you can hurt my feelings? My ex convinced me to support him going on Love Island… then left me after to get with another islander.’

The clip then went to a picture of the former couple kissing as well as showing a grab from their own YouTube channel called ‘Biggs & Lori’.

Lori then exposed the messages in the TikTok video, where Biggs said things such as his relationship with Rebecca will ‘never proceed’ and it’s ‘for the public’.

The messages started with Biggs heading to the villa for the winter edition of Love Island earlier this year where they discussed their future. 

Lori put: ‘Mwahhhh love you loads and loads’ and ‘see you soon it’ll fly in’, to which he replied with: ‘Babe am gonna smash it for us’  followed with a video of himself. 

She then showed more messages where he appeared to say: ‘Honestly you have nothing nothing nothing to worry about,’ and ‘I swear and you should your freaking sleeping in my house.’

Yet the messages took a dramatic turn when Lori then shared texts from March where she said: ‘Listen Biggs I stood by you. Not for you to be with her a year so answer me now I need a time frame?’

Biggs appeared to reply with: ‘I have the best easiest ride’ and ‘Lori I’m telling you’, to which she responded with: ‘Why do you lie then! You said you were gonna cut it’.

The couple went on to share loved-up snaps and videos of themselves during a train journey on Wednesday.  

MailOnline has contacted both Biggs and Rebecca’s representatives for further comment. 

It is not known how long Biggs and Lori dated but the Love Island star appears in one of her YouTube videos from August 2019.

During the footage, Lori calls him her ‘good friend’ to which he jokes: ‘Friend? Is that what you call it these days.’

With the make-up artist admitting she is waiting for him to ask her to be his girlfriend. 

Biggs and Rebecca have been inseparable since appearing on the winter edition of Love Island earlier this year.  

Rebecca had originally left the Love Island villa with Jordan Waobikeze, who she pursued in Casa Amor, but confessed shortly afterwards that she wanted to go on a date with Biggs.

Biggs had similarly failed to find true love in the villa after Jess Gale did not choose him during the recoupling.
