Molly came fourth in this year's summer series of Love Island alongside Zach Noble, with couple deciding to pursue their romance on the outside.

Speaking at the reunion last month, Zach said he and Molly were going to take things slow and enjoy some privacy as their relationship develops.

"I’m definitely ready to get home and start the real thing," he said. "I couldn’t be more grateful. Love Island has done its job.

"We’re just going to take it slow, there’s no pressure and we know where we are. We have made the correct steps and took our time doing it. I want to do this properly now."

Love Island airs on ITV2 and streams on ITVX.
