The former islander chats to MailOnline about their journey so far.

'We were together at the beginning [of Love Island] for like two weeks, so we didn’t properly know each other...'

'You don’t get to know someone fully within two weeks.'

'When we both came out, we went on a few dates and reconnected.'

'We were friends but we were also secretly dating on the down low...'

'Which was nice as we got to know each other without the pressure.'

'In the villa, you get to know each other so well...'

'But after the show, you really get to see what your lives are like and you can meet each other’s families.'

'I showed Joe what I do in my spare time and vice versa, which has been so nice.'

'We shared a bed on the first night and I thought that was quite full-on.'

Lucie and Joe are taking things slow, 'We’d love to plan a nice holiday.'

'I’ve never moved in with a boyfriend and to be honest we’re definitely too young for that.'

'I couldn’t be away from the beach and I’ve still got a lot of work up here.'

'So it’s nice to have our own space and keep our relationship chill.'

Lucie doesn't talk to Tommy anymore

Tommy made his appearance as a bombshell arrival a few days into the series.

He expressed his interest in Lucie however, she was coupled up with Joe at the time.

This however, didn't stop him from choosing her in a re-coupling.

They spent the week getting to know each other as Joe looked on in anger.

When it came to it, Lucie decided to stick it out with Joe.

Tommy went on to find love with new girl Molly-Mae.

When Joe was dumped from the villa, Lucie approached Tommy for a chat.

She told him she had feelings for him but he stayed loyal to Molly-Mae and turned the surfer down.
