Love Island Final 2016: Olivia and Alex


Taking to Instagram, Olivia shared a photograph of herself and Alex kissing that was taken while they shopped in her hometown of Essex. But it wasn't the picture that caught our eye, it was Olivia's gushing caption and declaration of love for her new man.

She said alongside her post: "La la love you @ab_bowen."

Naturally we started scrolling the comments and checking Alex's page to see if he replied, and of course, he did. He responded on Olivia's post with a love heart emoji and said: "Love you too babe."


The couple's public display of affection gained a slew of compliments from fans, with one follower commenting underneath her snap: "Just the cutest couple, so genuine and real. Not afraid to show their true feelings."

Alex, meanwhile, said: "We're taking every day as it comes. But we're going to put 100 per cent effort in, so that's all that matters at the moment."

Gushing about his girl, he added: "Olivia brings out the best in me - she gets my weirdness, so I can completely be myself with her... She's just a beautiful girl."
