Rumours the couple were dating again first sparked earlier this month when Joe was spotted visiting Lucie in Cornwall.

The beaming pair were photographed holding hands as they strolled out to dinner in her hometown.

The former Islanders also fuelled rumours they had reunited when the sports model was snapped introducing the Londoner to her family during another seaside trip.

Joe and Lucie coupled up on the very first day of Love Island 2019 when the blonde beauty picked him from the line-up of single boys.

Their romance blossomed live on TV but the pair were split up when Joe left the show on day 16.

She later faced criticism for revealing her feelings for co-star Tommy Fury soon after Joe's departure, despite the fact the professional boxer was coupled-up with now girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.

Following a stint in Casa Amor, Lucie continued the show with Essex builder George Rains, but just days after re-coupling she insisted there was no spark.
