Love Island's Jess Shears and Dom Lever are in talks for their own reality show based around their wedding
Jess Shears and Dom Lever are in talks for their own realiy show based around their wedding.
The couple - who met during their time on reality show 'Love Island' this year - recently announced they are engaged, and it has now been reported that TV bosses are already planning on creating a show similar to MTV's 'Newlyweds' about the couple.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jess and Dom couldn't be happier right now. They've now got their date set and they'll get married next summer.
"They're currently in talks with telly bosses to star in a 'Newlyweds' show in the run-up to the big day. TV chiefs are really keen to nab the 'first Love Island wedding' as it's a guaranteed viewing hit. And by time it airs, 'Love Island' fever will have struck the nation all over again following the next series."
The news comes after the pair revealed Dom, 26, got down on bended knee for his beau earlier this month in a London apartment.
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, as soon as they've tied the knot, the pair are planning to have a baby.
Jess, 23, added: "We're desperate for kids. I don't think we'll wait too long after we get married to start trying."
