Interestingly the pair didn’t star in the same series of Love Island, Lucie was a contestant in season five, and Luke in six. The pair met outside of the villa, starting up a romance in 2020 when Luke split from ex Demi Jones and confirming they were a couple in July of the same year. 

After six months of dating, the pair moved in together and have been going from strength to strength, sharing frequent steamy, loved-up snaps on Instagram.

Their romantic getaway in Finland saw the pair share plenty of romantic shots from the winter wonderland, including an underwear snap in the snow!

Lucie wrote in another snowy couple snap, 'This trip gets even more magical every second, thank you for the best surprise in the world @lukemabbott .. Love you 🤍🌎.'

Congratulations Lucie and Luke!
