Zara's post didn't go unnoticed with fans and many sent their well wishes to the 21-year-old when it comes to her new romance.

One follower commented: "Oh wow about time you were snapped up! So happy for you." Another said: "I'm actually so happy for you. You deserve it."

A rep for Zara confirmed she is dating when contacted by Reveal, but added "it is early days" for her new romance.

News Zara is dating again comes after we caught up with her in September, and she came over all coy when quizzed about her love life. Making sure not to give anything away, when we asked Zara whether she had a romance on the go, the former Miss Great Britain couldn't stop giggling before telling us: "No comment."

So far Zara hasn't revealed too much about her new man, but it seems she is pretty smitten.

Zara tweeted on Sunday night (30 October): "Perfect weekend, hope everyone's had a lovely weekend. Night night."

Zara starred on Love Island's second series this summer, but failed to find romance. She had initially coupled up with Scott Thomas, but he had cooled things off to pursue his new girlfriend Kady McDermott instead. Then, Zara partnered with Daniel Lukakis, but decided the pair were better off as friends.

She also lost out to Olivia Buckland when it came to coupling up with Adam Maxted, and despite spending the night with Alex Bowen, Alex then decided to partner with Olivia instead.

Deciding she liked Adam, Zara finally got to couple up with him, but they lost out on the opportunity to see whether romance could blossom as Zara left the show early, after her mum was taken ill.

Addressing her exit, Zara said on the show: "I'm disappointed to be going but family is everything. I'm going to remember every single little bit of being in the villa. I'll never, ever, ever forget this."
