Today he turned his metaphor magic to the happy news that Love Island co-stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen have moved in together.

Adam wrote: "@OliviaDBuck & @ab_bowen07 moving in together today it's like when you're waiting for something in the post and it arrives #couplegoals."


Olivia replied: "Adam, we miss you!"

Olivia and Alex fell for each other during their time in the villa, making it official just before the final, where they finished second to winners Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey.

Things went from strength to strength in the outside world when they left Majorca, with the pair exchanging 'I love yous' and then taking the huge decision to move in together!

They finished second on Love Island.

Birmingham-based Alex, 24, has now moved down to Olivia's flat in Essex, where they'll rent for a while before buying their own place. Olivia told Reveal recently: "We're renting at the minute, so we're saving to buy a house, possibly next April."

She also joked that while Alex is managing the household chores, he needs to work on his cooking skills. "I've I was in Marbs last week and he tidied up the flat and went food shopping, so I think I've got him well trained! But he can't cook, he can only boil an egg or do some toast, so I'll have to do that!"

He is, however, learning when it comes to the DIY! "He put up a rail yesterday," she told us. "But he's got to learn. He's been a Mummy's boy so I'm sort of taking it on."

They celebrated Alex's 24th birthday in July.

Olivia, 22, told us that as Alex is an only child, it may be "hard" for his mum seeing him move down to Essex, but added: "She'll support him. We get on really well, so I'll be inviting her down for dinner. She's so sweet!"

As for the future, she admitted it's too soon to be talking kids yet, but she has hinted to Alex what engagement ring she wants.

"We were out shopping and I showed him the ring I want. I was like, 'This is it! I'll show you now and then in a year's time you can have a look.' I don't want an ugly ring," she said.

"We haven't really discussed [kids] because every time I mention giving birth Alex shivers. I know that we definitely want to get married before we had any. I'd like to have two babies."
