Love Island fans are sobbing over Luca Bish's elaborate way of asking Gemma Owen to be his girlfriend.

The couple finally revealed that they'd made it official today (29 August) and Luca's way of 'popping the question' was elaborate, to say the least.


Using balloons in a pool, he asked his Love Island beau to 'Be My Girlfriend' before presenting her with a stunning Cartier bracelet to seal the deal.

The pair had music and countless roses, setting the scene for a truly romantic moment.

Many fans were quick to praise Luca for his thoughtfulness.

Alongside a sobbing emoji, one fan wrote: "Omg this is sooooo cute Congrulationsss guysss [sic]."

"Okay crying," added a second while a third wrote: "That’s absolutely beautiful. Well done Luca."

"My heart is exploding into a million pieces," remarked a fourth fan.

However, while many people thought Luca's way of asking Gemma to be official was adorable, others thought it was a bit much.

One wrote: "Luca asking (telling) Gemma to be his girlfriend is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Ever."

"What's the actual proposal gonna look like? Sheesh!" wrote a second while a third remarked: "This looks like a proposal."

Luca previously hinted to ITV that he would ask Gemma to be his girlfriend using a pool.

He said: "There is a plan and it will hopefully happen in the next month and I'm sure you'll see it unfold. It'll be something to do with a swimming pool. "

Gemma, who was present at the time of the interview, added: "He knows me well enough now to not do anything too cringe! So, I trust him and I’ll let him get on with it. I'm sure I'll love it, whatever it is."

This comes after the fishmonger admitted that he 'lost it' towards the end of the series after he came under fire for his treatment of Gemma.

One of these instances was during movie night, where he accused Gemma of letting Casa Amor newcomer Billy think he had a chance with her.

He said to Grazia: "A lot of those moments where I lost it came at the end of the show and by that point, my emotions and everything – I was drained of it all."

"I didn't feel like the Luca I was before. Everyone that's close to me – my parents and friends – could see the last two weeks in the villa I wasn't myself and that's why certain situations, like Movie Night, got the better of me."
