Luke Mabbott and Lucie Donlan have put a ring on it, just 17 months after they first confirmed their romance. Some fans are wondering how old they are following the engagement news.
Despite not appearing on the same Love Island season, their paths crossed and eventually led them to a new relationship. It comes after Lucie and Joe didn’t work out, as well as Luke and Demi, who left the island hand-in-hand.
Most Islanders meet each other at various press events and fancy meet-ups, so it’s no wonder that Luke and Lucie quickly discovered a bond. We found out their ages following the recent engagement.
