However, Luke didn't shoot to fame until the following year, when he took part in the first – and so far only – winter edition of Love Island.

He landed a spot in the final with ex Demi Jones, but the pair endured a bitter split just three months later.

Luke and Lucie confirmed their romance in July last year, with sparks initially flying as they swapped texts throughout lockdown.

A source told us at the time: "Luke wasn't single for long after he split with his ex Demi and Lucie is his dream woman – he can't believe his luck."
