Love Island stars Rachel Fenton and Rykard Jenkins have proven they are still oh-so-smitten now they are back home in the UK.

The pair, who had struck up a romance on the ITV2 dating show, have now returned from Mallorca and it looks like they are definitely going to give their relationship a go.

Even if things did get a little tense between them...

Taking to Instagram, Rykard shared a photo of himself and Rachel as they landed back on home soil. He told fans: "Made it back safe & sound with @rachelfenton1 Big shout out to #LoveIsland smiles all around."

Rachel, meanwhile, thanked fans for their support, adding on her own page: "Not sure what the future holds - but thank you so much for all your support xxx."

She then added: "We're back and we're #HAPPY."

Last night (14 June), Rachel had joined beau Rykard and her former co-stars Daniel Lukakis and Javi Shephard in London for the evening, later sharing a photo of herself and Rykard cuddled up together online.

Is this proof they're definitely still dating? It sure looks like it, and Rykard seemed to confirm so when responding to a user on Twitter. They had shared a screenshot of Rachel's picture of the pair and commented: "IM SO HAPPY (sic)."

Rykard replied: "I'm happy too!" He also re-tweeted a fan that had complimented him and Rachel. They tweeted: "You are perfect for each other and bring the best out in one another... so precious individuals."

Rachel was a latecomer to the villa, but instantly caught Rykard's eye. Things had been going well for the couple, after they enjoyed an overnight date in the hideaway, but their time together was cut short when Rachel was voted out of the villa, along with Daniel, by the islanders.

To add to the drama, Caroline Flack then told Rachel about Rykard sleeping with Olivia behind her back. It was a moment that shocked viewers - Olivia and Rykard were caught getting intimate on camera in the bed next to where Rachel was sleeping.

Rachel told Caroline she felt "betrayed" by Rykard and would not have put him down to be "that boy." She did, however, want to hear him out.

Rachel confronted Rykard over his actions with Olivia and he told her: "If I could go back and not do it, I wouldn't have done it."

"You need to build a bit of trust back up. It's a massive thing for me. You know I've been cheated on in the past, it's difficult for me to trust," Rachel told him.

Prior to meeting with her, Rykard had QUIT Love Island. He said he didn't want to continue without her.

Touched by his gesture, Rachel admitted: "If you had stayed in there, then I probably would have never wanted to see you again. The fact that you left, it does mean quite a lot..."

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2.
