Love Island viewers celebrated the official coupling up of Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood on Sunday night’s show.

The pair – who have flirted for weeks – partnered up earlier this week in a surprise recoupling.

And on Sunday Attwood took their relationship to the next level as she asked Hughes if she could be his girlfriend.

She told Hughes he was the “best person I’ve met in a long time” adding he had “restored a lot of faith in me”.

After he eagerly agreed, the pair shared their news with the rest of the Islanders.

Their fellow contestants were delighted, as were viewers on social media.

One fan wrote: “Olivia and Chris would make a gorgeous couple on the outside… The villa gets to her madly.”

Another posted: “Chris is definitely my favourite guy in the villa . Really nice guy and he loves Liv like crazy”.

One viewer said: “Smiling that hard for Chris and Liv my jaw hurts.”

:: Love Island returns on Monday at 9pm on ITV2.
