Who knew Michelle Keegan had a link to Love Island?!
The former Corrie star has clearly been enjoying the show just as much as we have, and last night during the finale, she expressed her excitement at one of her nearest and dearest coming home after weeks on the island…
So, who could Mich be linked to? Is she secret pals with Olivia Buckland? Do her and Nathan Massey go way back? Well, no and no. Because in fact, it’s Michelle’s cousin we’re talking about.
‘SO excited for my number 1 to come home tomorrow… Haven’t seen her properly in months when normally we’re inseparable’, Michelle posted alongside an Instagram snap of her and her cousin Katie last night (but no, we don’t mean Katie Salmon).
‘Words can’t tell you how proud of you I am! @katiefearnehoughx you did it xx.’
Michelle’s cousin Katie has actually been working as a producer on Love Island this series, and was also Mich’s bridesmaid for her wedding to Mark Wright last year.
She soon replied next to the snap with: ‘Your the sweetest, You don’t understand how much I’ve missed you!!!!can’t WAIT to see you! Love you. (sic).’ Aww.
And Katie couldn’t leave the villa without sharing a cheeky snap of her at the end-of-series party last night, posing by the pool and writing: ‘Romeo done now for my first wrap #loveisland #allover #wraptime #itv.’
She did an ace job – best Love Island series yet, if you ask us!
