Jessica Hayes, who won Love Island's first series, has announced her engagement to partner Dan Lawry with a sweet post on Instagram. Alongside a snap of her showing off her sparkling ring, she wrote: "He's only gone and put a ring on it… What an emotional 24 hours I'm smiling so much my face actually hurts! My best friend has made me his fiancé in the best way ever… After knowing each other a long time the fact we finally made our way back to each other, I know everything was meant to be and I'm the happiest girl on earth right now."

It's thought that Jess and her future husband Dan have only been together for six months, but have known each other a long time. The 25-year-old rose to fame after winning the 2015 series of ITV's summer dating show with then-boyfriend Max Morley – though they split just a month or-so after the finale.
