Posting the picture on Instagram, Scott said he feels "overwhelmed" by all of the good wishes he and Kady have received following their time on the ITV2 show.

He commented: "Oh how I've missed a good selfie! Sat here reading all the amazing support I've had from everyone! So overwhelmed! It means so much! Thank you everyone!"

After last night's finale episode, which saw Nathan Massey and Cara de la Hoyde crowned this year's Love Island winners, Scott and his fellow co-stars enjoyed a good old knees up together. However, earlier today Scott shared a picture of Kady curled up next to the toilet... Oh dear!

The couple have vowed to stay together now the series is over and they have finally swapped numbers - a monumental moment which Scott has described as a "weird feeling"!

Before their exit from the villa, Scott and Kady were seen expressing their true feelings for each other after penning some pretty emotional speeches. In hers, Kady said: "I think it's clear that the whole nation knows we've had a massive rollercoaster relationship, but I honestly wouldn't change it for the world. I have not one single regret, because everything that's happened in the last six weeks has made us the strong couple that we are now.

"You're gorgeous, funny, loud. I wouldn't even swap you for Zayn Malik. I can't wait for us to continue our journey on the outside together as boyfriend and girlfriend."

Scott, meanwhile, read Kady this poem he had written for her:

"When my journey on Love Island began, I didn't know what to expect,
'I'll never meet a girl in there' I'd say, 'How much do you wanna bet?'
But oh how wrong could I be,
Everything changed when I met this absolute worldie called Kady.
It's not been an easy ride, and we've had our tests,
We've argued like crazy and I've quickly learnt that Kady always knows best.
I wouldn't change my time with her for the world; she really is one very special girl.
It was a massive thing for me to make her my girlfriend.
I know this poem was a little bit soppy, so don't mock it,
Kady pack your bags and get to Manchester, my little pocket rocket."

Aw, they're too cute!
