Jess Shears and Dom Lever are set to walk down the aisle soon after getting engaged recently
Love Island's Jess Shears and Dom Lever have got engaged.
The couple have only been together a matter of months after they met in the famous villa over the summer months, but they're certainly not hanging about as they're set to walk down the aisle in the near future after the 26-year-old hunk got down on one knee and popped the question at the beginning of the month in an apartment in London.
Speaking to OK! magazine, Jess said: "It happened the night before the TV Choice Awards. We were staying in a lovely apartment in London. Dom filled it with flowers and had got us a bottle of champagne ... I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat when Dom got down on one knee - he said afterwards that he had never seen me smile like that!"
Dom was initially planning to propose abroad but realised there was no time to book a holiday due to their work commitments and he was so desperate to get engaged.
He explained: "If I'd waited I don't know when it would have had time to do it because we're so busy at the moment. It felt like the right time."
And, although their engagement is still very fresh, the pair are keen to get hitched as soon as possible and are hoping that they can arrange a wedding for next summer.
Jess, 23, said: "We're thinking next summer. I've been thinking about my wedding day since I was a little girl so I've got loads of ideas ...
"...We'd like to do it abroad, either in the south of France or somewhere in Greece like Santorini. We don't want a big wedding, I only want our close friends and family there because, to me, that is what your wedding day is about."
And, as soon as they've tied the knot, the pair are planning to have a baby.
Jess added: "We're desperate for kids. I don't think we'll wait too long after we get married to start trying."
