LOVE Island viewers were thrilled when Alex Beattie asked Montana Brown to be his girlfriend in tonight’s show.
The pair became an official couple during a romantic picnic date where Alex suggested they take their relationship to the next level.
At one stage it looked like Alex was going to choke as he plucked up the courage to ask Montana out.
He said: “I don’t know how to put it into words because I’ve not had to say it before but, it’s a new experience to have someone in my life that I can just have a really good time with.
“It’s so easy with you, it’s so easy for me to get along with you, talk to you, you’ve made me feel like I’ve connected with you really well and I’ve never really had that before.”
Montana replied: “I’ve surprised myself because at the beginning, I felt myself getting anxious about letting myself have feelings… It’s just been really nice for me to allow myself to like somebody for all the right reasons. I genuinely can’t fault you on anything.
“It’s nice but it’s a bit scary because I feel like each day, I do like you a bit more and I feel like I get closer to you every day as well. I just feel like I’ve got feelings already.”
However, he composed himself and asked her to be his his girlfriend to which she said she’d love to.
