After Love Island winners Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies announced their split a few weeks ago, fans of the show will be pleased to hear Gabby Allen and Marcel Somerville are still as in love as ever.
Co-stars Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt have kept their romance low key, while Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood have had a series of dramatic feuds.
Gabby and Marcel have done their best to keep a lot of their relationship out of the limelight, and the 25 year old – who is releasing fitness app Shape Up With Gabby Allen – has exclusively revealed just why they are so solid.
Explaining why she doesn’t like to share too much of her and her beau on social media, Gabby told OK! Online: “It’s like you’ve got something to prove… I want to keep some level of my life private.”
She also revealed why they try not to attend too many events together, through fear of looking like “a showmance”.
Gabby added: “Even though you do go to events together and stuff, that’s not a normal relationship.

“So, we could go to an event everyday of the week together but that’s not actually our quality time. We came to the decision that we actually had to go out on a date and not get bloody papped.
“Otherwise you look like you’re in a showmance, and that’s not what we want or have ever been about.”
Chris and Olivia faced a turbulent few months after leaving the villa – the 23-year-old farmer became embroiled in a very public spat with Katie Price and was filmed getting very close to a mystery woman on a night out in Sugar Hut in November – incidents he has since cleared up and moved on from.
Throughout the drama, the couple kept fans guessing as to whether they had split after they shared a series of cryptic notes online.
Gabby explained why she opts not to share her feelings on social media, saying the decision only provides “unnecessary stress”.
“I have a constant battle with myself because it kind of keeps you relevant and keeps people guessing, and keeps you in the news everyday, like, ‘oh cryptic tweet’ and all that.
“If me and Marc were to have an argument, I wouldn’t go on twitter and write, ‘Oh my god I hate you’ just because why would you want even more stress about something that’s already stressful?”
