A couple! A real couple! Winter Love Island is in full swing, and Grazia is pleased to report that we have our first bona fide boyfriend and girlfriend – Finn, and Paige.

How did it happen? Let's set the scene, which is always quite weird in Love Island. Everyone’s in swimwear, there’s a fire pit... But anyway... Finn pulled Paige for a chat. We’d seen him earlier in the day, psyching himself up for the big moment and running it past the boys for their approval/input; as such, we knew what was coming. We knew he’d drafted a little speech! On his little phone!

Anyway. Armed with said speech and looking visibly jittery, Finn led his girlfriend-in-waiting to one of the villa's minimalist benches. Meanwhile, the rest of the contestants watched the moment from the balcony above.

‘It’s a different scale of how happy I am and I notice how happy you are as well,’ said Finn, referencing the couple’s successful navigation of Casa Amor’s choppy waters last week. ‘There is so much I love about you inside and out,’ (L Bomb! L Bomb alert!) he continued, before adding: ‘I knew there was a heart in there and I knew there was a soft side and you’ve definitely shown it now.' (Finn, stahp).

‘All I think now is what's gonna happen on the outside. There are going to be some challenges but I do want it to be something we face together... so will you be my girlfriend?’

I mean, how could she say anything but yes? She said yes.

Twitter of course went ballistic, with fans predicting Finn and Paige this year’s winners. ‘Paige and Finn have to win they're soooo cute a love them’; ‘Paige and Finn have to win now, full on crying at how cute they are 😭😭 #LoveIsland’; ‘Calling it now Paige and Finn to Win this year #LoveIsland’, etc, etc. Watch this space...
