Awww, congrats!

When Rykard Jenkins ran down the Love Island beach to chase after his partner Rachel Fenton, it was probably the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.

The smitten star dramatically declared: ‘I’m not f***** around her, if you’ve got a girl you can’t let her go, so I am out,’ and our hearts melted. Aww.

It was one of the most romantic moments of this year's Love Island...

It was one of the most romantic moments of this year’s Love Island…

But since leaving all the villa drama behind, it seems like the loved-up pair have gone from strength to strength and have now moved in together.

Rachel took to Instagram to announce the exciting news, posting a photo with champagne glasses next to the caption: ‘So myself and Mr Jenkins have officially moved in together!

‘Our new place couldn’t be more perfect – I’ve never been happier.’

Rachel followed the post up with another picture of her topless boyfriend in their new home, adding the caption: ‘Feeling like I’ve won the lottery.’

Seriously guys, what are you doing to us?!

Feeling like I've won the lottery ?

And excited fans were quick to show their support, as one commented: ‘Congrats you two I love you both.’

Another added: ‘This is the cutest.’

We totally agree.

The pair fell for each other on the ITV2 show when Rachel entered the villa as a newcomer, but was then voted off of the Island.


Refusing to let his partner leave without him, Rykard then dramatically walked from the show to pursue his relationship with the 23-year-old nurse.

Speaking after his shock departure, Rykard told the Daily Mail: ‘I decided to leave the villa because at that moment I was developing a really nice relationship with Rachel and watching her walk away, I knew I had the power to stay or go.


‘No one was holding me to staying in the competition, so I decided I wanted to go after Rachel as that is who I wanted to be with. I didn’t want to meet anyone new and I wasn’t there for the prize money.

‘I didn’t anticipate Rachel leaving in advance but when it came to it I had made up my mind – if Rachel left the villa, I was going as well.’

It’s great to see the couple are still going strong and we wish them all the luck in their new home.
