'Love Island' stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen are engaged after a whirlwind romance
Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen are engaged.
The pair - who met while filming 'Love Island' over the summer - are set to tie the knot after Alex proposed during a romantic trip to New York.
Olivia flashed her spectacular diamond ring in a new picture of the couple on her Instagram account, and wrote: "I have no words for how happy I am. My fiancé my everything @ab_bowen this was magical. So magical (sic)."
And he shared a picture of Olivia's hand with the ring and wrote: "She said yes."
Olivia and Alex moved in together in October and recently got a puppy; a baby French Bulldog named Reggie.
And the pair - who narrowly missed out on winning 'Love Island' - are desperate to have their own reality TV show.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Olivia previously said: "We would love our own spin-off! We love that!"
She would also be willing to take part in 'Celebrity Big Brother', but only if Alex could join her.
Olivia recently said: "I don't think that I'll ever be done (with reality TV), I'd never say never, you never know what's going to happen. I loved the experience of 'Love Island' and if I could do something similar with Alex then I don't think I could say no. If Alex came with me [into the 'CBB' house] I'd go for it."
Meanwhile, the blonde beauty was initially worried about whether their relationship would last outside of the villa but has been pleasantly surprised by the support they've had.
She said: "It's really crazy; I never ever thought it would be like this. I think we all expected it to have a little bit of buzz, but this year it's been mental, its lovely. The amount of people who just support you is unreal.
"Everyone has been so lovely, I didn't think they would be. I think I was sort of expecting the worst but hoping for the best, but it has been the best."
