Aw. Scott Thomas and Kady McDermott have well and truly cemented themselves as one of our favourite couples on Love Island.
And the pair have reached a new milestone in their relationship, which we got to watch play out on our screens last night.
It’s no secret that this pair have been through quite a bit during their time in the villa, but it’s been seeming as though they’ve come out of the other side – so much so, in fact, that 28-year-old Scott decided he wanted to take things to the next level with his missus.
Proving that he can be a romantic geezer, Scotty Special had a plan up his sleeve. And it involved towels. Sound weird? Stay with us. It was actually super cute.
Given that they’re in a villa in the middle of nowhere, he didn’t have much to work with. But Scott hatched a plan that involved spelling out the letters ‘BE MY GF?’ on the grass, so that an unsuspecting Kady would look out of the bedroom window to see it…
Natch, he got his boys to help him, leaving the girls none-the-wiser – and probably gossiping away – in the bedroom.
The scene was set. The music was playing. The voiceover man was on top form. And we’re not afraid to admit it, we had tears in our eyes. Well, just a few.
Once Kady finally sussed what had been going on, she announced excitedly: ‘Oh my god! I can’t deal with it. Yes!’
And she, of course, went to meet her man downstairs for a hug. N’aw.
Afterwards, in the beach hut, Kady gushed, ‘It’s so weird. I now have a boyfriend! I swear to god, I’ve never had anyone do something so thoughtful and so sweet for me before. People can buy you stuff, but that was so sweet. We had such a rollercoaster; I don’t regret any of it. Not all couples would have got through what we’ve been through. It shows we are strong and we do like each other.’
Scott got all soppy too, telling the camera, ‘I’m genuinely smitten with Kady. I’m obsessed with the girl and I think people can see that. There’s no better place to make a big gesture than Love Island. You’ve got to pick your moment in here and I think it paid off.’
PASS US THE TISSUES.
Social media reacted in a big way, with comments including: ‘I might have just cried at Scott and Kady’, ‘what has my life come to, getting real emotional over Scott and Kady’ and ‘Wanting a Scott and Kady moment in my life #loveIsland’.
Oh, you guys.
