After rumours that they had grown close over lockdown, Lucie Donlan and Luke Mabbott have finally met up in real life - and gone on a mini-break together! Whilst Luke only recently split from fellow Islander Demi Jones, it looks like things are already pretty serious between him and Lucie.
In one Love Island coupling we definitely didn't see coming, Winter Love Island’s Luke Mabbott is now dating series 5 star Lucie Donlan. Fresh from his break-up from Demi Jones, it was reported last week that Luke and Lucie had grown close over Instagram during lockdown - and they’ve now been able to meet up in real life.
Whilst they’ve not yet posted any pics together, both Luke and Lucie posted footage from the same location to their Insta stories - showing a hot tub and a stunning view over some fields. According to a source who spoke to The Sun, Lucie is Luke’s ‘dream woman - he can’t believe his luck.’
Although Luke seems to be moving pretty fast in his new relationship by already going on a romantic trip away with Lucie, he’s not been single for long. He and fellow Love Island runner-up Demi Jones announced their split just over a month ago, although they hadn’t seen each other at all over lockdown.
At the time, Demi admitted that the end of the relationship was 'brought about more from his behalf than mine' as she hinted that Luke hadn't been putting much effort into their romance. Whilst she insisted that they remained 'friendly', she's since made a dig at Lucie for making such a quick move on Luke.
Meanwhile, Cornish surfer babe Lucie has been single since she split from controversial Islander Joseph Garratt last December, after a rocky relationship both in and out of the villa. Joe was accused of infidelity after compromising footage of him getting very close to Love Island winner Amber Gill in a club went public.
