Love Island champ and Limerick Uni law graduate Greg O’Shea has moved on from former flame Amber Gill and is reportedly dating a fellow law grad.

Emma Canning, 22, graduated from Strathclyde Uni last year, and is said to be O’Shea’s new love interest.

The similarities between the two don’t stop at their degrees — they’re both also athletes and models with huge online followings. O’Shea, 24, is a pro rugby player who represents Ireland’s national rugby sevens team, while Canning is a heptathlete.

The romance was revealed when O’Shea posted a pic on Instagram of him dining in Paris — the City in which Scottish-born Canning now resides. Fellow Islanders Chris Taylor and Michael Griffiths both commented, demanding to know who O’Shea was seated opposite, which is when Canning’s identity was revealed. Canning can be seen as the opposite diner in a photo posted to her own Instagram page.

The rumours were reportedly confirmed when a source close to the couple told MailOnline:

“Greg and Emma have been dating for a number of weeks now. He’s in Paris with Emma at the moment and they’ve been having a fun time exploring the city together. Emma is undeniably Greg’s type, she’s an athlete and model, absolutely gorgeous and prefers to be out of the spotlight.”

The latest comments from across Legal Cheek

O’Shea defied the odds to be crowned the winner of Love Island 2019 after spending just two weeks in the villa.

The Irishman allegedly dumped Gill, with whom he was partnered, by text five weeks after the series finale. Since then he’s revealed ambitions to qualify as a solicitor.

Is this Legalcheek or Buzzfeed

Prefers to be out of the Spotlight but has 11k Instagram followers and every picture is of herself…hmm



At the rate this trife gets posted, I have to asked myself whether its now being done in the name of satire, because its embarrassing.



Literally delete the whole website.

Imagine how disappointed everyone that you have ever come across in your legal or academic career will be when they find out that you write Love Island articles on a rip off RoF.


Hate Island

Never thought Greg and Amber would last. What an earth would she talk about with him? Bets ways to do lashes or hair? Also, please post proper legal news. Not this bull.



I doubt he’s the biggest intellect…



Fantastic article Aishah. Keep it up.


Trainee on a train...

Carry on posting such utter sh*t and this “news page” won’t last. Know your audience.



He will regreturn his decision later in life



This has tenuous if any relevance



Still she’s fit. So that makes it more newsworthy.



Excellent journalism. Your career will go far with scoops like these.


In House

Blimey – You know its bad when the JD Partner can’t be bothered to comment…


You love to hate it

‘Delete this!’ ‘Know your audience!’ ‘No one cares!’ screamed the angry mob, as the article remained Legal Cheek’s ‘Most Read’ for over 24 hours…
