What happened with Haris and his ex-girlfriend Courtney?

After Haris was announced as an Islander it was revealed he had a girlfriend just a few months ago. Courtney Hodgson claimed he dumped her to go on the show.

In a chat with Capital FM `and other journalists, Haris explained they were seeing each other over the summer but things didn't work out.

He said: "The situation that I had with Courtney is we were seeing each other through summer. September time I said to her, 'I don't think it's going to work out.' After a few months, I never saw her as being 'the one', [or] having a future as you'd say. She never met my mum or dad.

"I don't know why she's seen it as a different view, you could probably say she was more interested in me than I was in her."
