Love Island 2016: Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen finally make it official!

Love Island 2016

Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen finally make it official in tonight's Love Island 2016, the last episode of the series.

Yesterday in the villa the four remaining couples attended the inaugural Love Island Summer Ball and each made speeches to their partners.

Having had their fair share of tests during their time in the villa, Olivia’s speech reflected on her time together with Alex and revealed how strongly she felt about him.

Olivia told Alex: “As you may know, trust and security is something I haven’t been able to conquer in my past. I came into Love Island with no expectations for that to change and for three weeks it didn’t. Then my prince walked in.

"Alex, in short, you have allowed me to learn to trust again. You’ve been the perfect gentleman and have been so patient with me and my many meltdowns. We’ve had more tests than I ever thought I could handle, but I’ve always had faith in us both as a team.

"My feelings for you get clearer and louder every day we spend together and I cannot think of a better way to finish the Love Island journey than to be on your arm. We’ll smash this final together and then start smashing a blinder of a future together, stronger than ever.”

Alex said to Olivia in his speech: “I came into Love Island with no expectations. I came here to have a good time and enjoy the opportunity to the fullest. I’ve realised now that I’ve done exactly that and it’s all down to this one girl. We have this crazy connection and I can’t even begin to describe it.

"When we get out, it’s going to be our time. I’ve never felt like this before and I just want you to know, I’m all yours and you’re mine.”

Having shared an equally emotional evening together, Olivia said to Alex: “In my lifetime I haven’t experienced happiness quite like this, and it’s all down to this one. I can call you my boyfriend?”

Alex replied: “Yeah. I’ve got a girlfriend! It’s mad.”

The Love Island 2016 final airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
