Ellie says: "I was seeing Jack Fincham on and off. We met in August 2016 and dated on and off for a while. We have always spoken because we got on so well.

"I actually spoke to him as a friend about two days before he went into the villa and had no idea he was going on the show! We weren’t in an official relationship but we spoke about it, would go on dates and kept trying to make it work but it wouldn’t."

Grace says: "I washed Joanna Lumley’s hair once! She came into my salon. That was so fun. A bit of Ab Fab.

"My biggest turn off is a guy that tries to belittle other guys. In a boy’s group, you always get the good looking, arrogant one. I can always see through them, and it usually shows a lot of insecurity in them when they dig out other guys."

"I did go out with one of my mate’s exes. I went there and we fell out so I would definitely do that. A lot of my mates call me ‘Snakey Brakey’ as a joke. I have got a reputation to walk over people, even if they are my mates. If I want something, I’ll go for it."

I was asking him all about Love Island but it was a long time ago and I never would have dreamed back then that I would now be going on the show."

Jack Fowler

After 18 days in the Love Island villa, fan favourite Alex finally got his first kiss with newcomer Ellie – and viewers went nuts about it.

Dr Alex has seen his share of upsets in his time in Mallorca, including seeing fellow islander Eyal steal away the apple of his eye, Megan. But on Wednesday night, armed with some 'advice' from fellow islanders, he plucked up the courage went to take Ellie aside and tell her that he would like to recouple with her in the future.

He was visibly nervous, saying that he was "laying his cards on his chest".

But Ellie reacted well, telling him, "I'd love nothing more. I don't want you to think it's for the wrong reasons."

“You're being genuine,” Alex replied, before moving in for a snog as the rest of the house cheered on from the sidelines. Watch the moment unfold in full below.

Love Island fans have been rooting for Alex all series, and they were delighted to see him finally find "love". For the most part, Twitter erupted in a whirlwind of relieved posts and celebratory gifs.

"Alex finally getting a kiss had me jumping more than Harry Kane's last minute winner," Jordan Coombe wrote.

However, others were not convinced.

"As much as I love Alex and want him to find love, Ellie is the Jonny to Alex's Camilla," @NicolaBates94 wrote, "she's not into him she just knows the public love him."

But most people were just happy to see him get the girl on this occasion.
