Love Island's Luke Mabbott and Lucie Donlan have pretty much just confirmed they're dating after super-sleuths (ahem us) spotted they're currently enjoying a break together after meeting up for the first time since they first sparked rumours of a potential new romance.
The pair, who were first linked late last month, both shared videos of the same outdoor hot tub at some glorious unknown location on their Instagram Stories on Monday night. Luke also posted a picture of the dream cinema set up with a huge projector, blankets and snacks.
"They were messaging each other over Instagram during lockdown and as the rules relaxed their romance blossomed," a source told the Sun Online. "Luke wasn't single for long after he split with his ex Demi and Lucie is his dream woman - he can't believe his luck."
It comes just a week after Luke appeared to reference Lucie in an Instagram post captioned: "Since you’ve been around I smile a lot more than I used to."
While Lucie also hinted at them getting close with this caption: "Dear tummy… Sorry for all the butterflies lately. I swear it’s not my fault… it’s his."
Luke split from Demi Jones last month, with Demi later revealing the break up was mainly down to Luke.
"We've completely called it off now, I think it was brought about more from his behalf than mine, but we're mutual and friendly," she told MailOnline. "With lockdown, it drove us apart and we live so far away from each other. I feel like there wasn't a lot of effort made with communication, so we drifted as a result. It's a shame and bad timing."
Admitting she was left disappointed as Luke opted against making them official, she added, "I had my hopes that he'd ask me once we came out of Love Island but it never really happened. As lockdown went on, little effort was made so it was called off."
That might explain one of Demi's recent Instagram posts, which fans are convinced was a message for surfer Lucie.
"Just recently I’ve been catching feelings... not flights," Lucie wrote on a Instagram post shared on 20 June. A few days later Demi posted, "Honey.. you should take my advice catch that flight, not the feeling 🤫."
It looks like Lucie won't be taking that flight any time soon...
