So cute!

While they didn't win, Alex and Olivia did come home with a new relationship, after making it official during their last night in the villa.

In a moment that made us all melt, Alex told her: "I came into Love Island with no expectations. I came here to have a good time and enjoy the opportunity to the fullest. I've realised now that I've done exactly that and it's all down to this one girl. We have this crazy connection and I can't even begin to describe it. When we get out, it's going to be our time.

"I've never felt like this before and I just want you to know, I'm all yours and you're mine."

And Olivia called Alex her "prince", saying: "Alex, in short, you have allowed me to learn to trust again. You've been the perfect gentleman and have been so patient with me and my many meltdowns. We've had more tests than I ever thought I could handle, but I've always had faith in us both as a team.

"My feelings for you get clearer and louder every day we spend together and I cannot think of a better way to finish the Love Island journey than to be on your arm. We'll smash this final together and then start smashing a blinder of a future together, stronger than ever."

We can't wait to see how this romance develops!
