Two of this year's ex-Love Islanders are dating in real life and we can't keep up

We didn't see this one coming.

Apparently, Darylle Sargeant is dating Jake Quickenden IRL but that's not the only romance from the reality show as two of this year's ex-Love Islanders are said to be getting on very well indeed.

Kieran Nicholls and Ellie Jones attended the London premiere of Fanged Up together and reports suggest that there might be a romance on the cards.

According to OK magazine, there may be a romance between the pair but we'll just have to wait and see if this is true...will they attend the Love Island final as a couple?

As fans of the show will know, Ellie previously dated Jack Fincham and her arrival at the villa caused major drama for Jack and Dani Dyer, whom he's been besotted with since the very beginning of the show.

Ellie was in the villa for about a week before she was voted off but not before revealing that Jack has a poster of Dani's dad, Danny Dyer, above his bed...

Kieran only lasted a few days too, entering the villa with fellow newbie Idris Virgo. Both were forced to leave after Alexandra Cane chose Alex George to couple up with.

Confusing? Yes, we know.

Since leaving the villa, Kieran says he's been getting lots of attention and in conversation with the Daily Star, he said:

"It's been madness. My DMs are ridiculous. I've got loads of girls messaging me and I've gone onto some of their pages and they've got boyfriends.

"I'm thinking 'Is it really acceptable to do that?'"
