And for those fans who have been missing their nightly dose of drama, there isn't long to wait for the reunion show which will be broadcast at 9pm on ITV2.

In a first look at the upcoming episode, Turkish actress Ekin-Su and Italian hunk Davide, both 27, looked as loved-up as ever while runners up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish shared a laugh - although shortly after they had a row while leaving filming.

While the first shot showed the new couple beam at the camera, Luca laughed as he grabbed Gemma's leg in the second, while the beauty pouted and fell into his arms.

And further solidifying that the couple are very much 'on', the Brighton native tagged Gemma in an Instagram Story on Friday evening, as he attempted to sell her on his home city.

'Am I selling Brighton to you yet @gemowen_1?', quipped Luca as he posted a video of horses. 

It marks the first photo shared of the couple together on Gemma's account in a week, after fans spotted an apparent snub towards Luca by her family.

The dressage rider's account handlers have avoided sharing any mention or photos of the fishmonger in the run up to the final.

And following Gemma and Luca's second-place finish, Luca's family were quick to congratulate the couple, posting a snap of them together with a gushing caption.

It read: 'Thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts for all of the support you’ve shown this gorgeous couple. So excited to continue watching your journey from the outside. You really did win by finding each other.'

This was in stark contrast to Gemma's Instagram, which noticeably only posted solo snaps of the brunette beauty in the lead-up and following the final, with beau Luca noticeably absent.

'She has shown the nation how mature, honest and classy she truly is. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for all the love and support…Gemma is going to be SO overwhelmed. 

'We are passing this back to Gemma now… We have loved running her account and being part of her @loveisland journey. We can’t wait for what the future holds.'

Eagle-eyed fans at home were quick to notice this, and took to Twitter to suggest that Gemma's family were not overly fond of Luca and that they were doing 'damage control' to protect Gemma's brand.
