Gemma Owen has given an update on her relationship with her Love Island beau Luca Bish after the pair left the villa in August and made things exclusive.
The couple were crowned runners up of this year's ITV dating series - coming second only to Ekin-Su and Davide - and have been in high demand ever since, amassing millions of followers and signing some pretty impressive brand deals.
In between their busy schedules, the couple have been trying their best to make time for each other, from couples trips to M&S to some grand romantic celebrations of love. But what's next for this loved up couple?
"I think at the moment, we're just taking it as it comes day by day, you know? Not much pressure," Gemma told Tyla.
“I think we'd probably like to get on a holiday by the end of the year, which is something that we're both really looking forward to."
On finding time for each other, Gemma says she and Luca consider themselves 'really lucky.'
"We have managed to find time for each other in our busy schedules", she said.
"Whenever we have a free day, or a free weekend, he's either up in Cheshire or I'm down in Brighton with him and his family so we’re managing to make it work. I'm happy with how it's going."
The couple seem to be going from strength to strength these days, but that's not to say they didn't have their moments in the early stages of their relationship.
It was only a matter of days before Luca set his sights on Gemma in the Love Island villa, and it wasn't long before the pair only had eyes for each other. But, as couples do, the two had their share of outbursts and arguments.
Although Gemma says she hasn't yet watched it all back, 'purely because there was not enough time to sit down and watch seven week's worth', she has caught some of the stand out moments she remembers from her time on the show.
"I think everything on the show - how I handled situations in there, I would have handled the same on the outside", she says.
“I don't think I was anything other than myself. I think I kept it sort of really real to how I would on the outside.”
It's no wonder the reality star hasn't had time to go back and watch the entire series yet - especially since she's just signed a brand deal with PrettyLittleThing.
"I think going into Love Island, I didn't expect anything. I think I just went in there with an open mind to everything.
"I'm really grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me from coming off the show."
Currently, PrettyLittleThing customers can shop Gemma's own personal edit on the site, consisting of 'neutral, classy, and elegant' looks.
"I think it really represents me and I think it's so suited, and I love every single piece. And I think there's definitely something in there for everyone", she said.
