Jess is now rocking one VERY flash rock on her ring finger
We have some HUGE news about Love Island‘s Jess Shears and Dom Lever today… they’re engaged!
Yep. Three months after meeting in the villa, 26-year-old Dom has got down on one knee and asked Jess, 24, to be his wife.
They made their announcement on the cover of OK!, with Jess telling the publication: ‘It happened the night before the TV Choice Awards [on 4 September]. We were staying in a lovely apartment in London.
‘Dom had filled it with flowers and had got us a bottle of champagne. I was doing a Snapchat video saying how lucky I felt when he called me out onto the terrace. I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat when Dom got down on one knee – he said afterwards that he has never seen me smile like that!’
Aw. How cute?!
Dom admits that his and Jess’s romance is pretty whirlwind, but is of the view that when you know, you know.
He continues: ‘Before I went on Love Island I would have judged someone for proposing this quickly, but spending so much time together in the villa really cemented my feelings for Jess.
‘After the first week of being back in the UK I knew I was going to marry her. As far as I’m concerned, when you know something is right, why wait?’

Jess concurs: ‘I can see why people would say we’re rushing into things but it feels like I’ve known Dom a lifetime.’
Talking about their wedding, she adds: ‘We’d like to do it abroad, either in the south of France or somewhere in Greece like Santorini. We don’t want a big wedding, I only want our close family and friends there because, to me, that is what your wedding day is all about.’
YOU GUYS. Team LOOK‘s sending you both a huge congratulations.
