The pair then tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Mykonos, Greece back in October.

‘People said we wouldn’t last but now we’re husband and wife,’ Dom said to OK! Magazine at the time.

‘We’re proof that when you meet the right person, there’s no need to hang around.

‘I always thought it was a cliche when people said “When you meet the one, you know”, but it’s true,’ added Jess. ‘I knew we’d be together forever from very early on.

‘I’m so excited to be Mrs Lever and to spend the rest of my life waking up next to Dom.’

Speaking of their intimate Grecian ceremony and explaining why they didn’t invite any fellow Love Island contestants, Dom said: ‘We really wanted an intimate wedding and we knew we couldn’t have had that in the UK.

‘Going abroad meant we didn’t have any pressure to invite every Tom, Dick and Harry. As we were limited on numbers, we only invited people we see all the time.

‘Choosing who to invite made us realise who was really important to us.’

Congratulations to the parents-to-be on their exciting announcement!
