Love Island's Lucie Donlan and Joe Garratt go Instagram official with smitten snap as they reclaim the 'Jucie' couple name fans gave them on the hit show

They confirmed their romance was back on over the weekend.

And Joe Garratt , 22, and Lucie Donlan, 21, do not appear to be taking things slow as they have already taken the next step in their blossoming romance by going Instagram official on Friday.

The Love Island stars both posted an identical snap where sandwich maker Joe lifted surfer Lucie into the air as they embrace.

The couple both hash tagged the offering '#JUCIE' - the name fans had given the cute couple when they first became an item in the Love Island villa.

As the pair gaze into one another's eyes the blonde bombshell models a beige and white striped summer dress and Joe opted for a white shirt and black jeans.

The duo's loved-up snap comes after they confirmed they were back together when they were seen strolling hand-in-hand on their way to dinner in Newquay.

Lucie and Joe's on-off relationship has been a hot topic since the ITV2 dating show finished this summer, after surfer Lucie invited the sandwich maker Joe home to Cornwall to meet her family earlier this month.

The beauty's sister Emily documented their day on her Instagram stories, where the couple took a dip in the sea and went for dinner at Sam's On The Beach in Polkerris.

Lucie and Joe's united display also came after they were spotted emerging from a hotel together the morning after the Love Island wrap party.

Blonde beauty Lucie had ruled out the possibility of a relationship with her former partner on an episode of Aftersun last month.

She told presenter Caroline Flack: 'We have stuck as friends. We don't want to put any pressure on anything. It was so much pressure in the villa. Now we are just chilling.'

Lucie's Love Island relationship with Joe was short lived, with him being dumped from the villa after just two weeks on the show.

Lucie then went on to confess to boxer Tommy Fury, 20, that she had begun to develop feelings for him, despite him being in an exclusive relationship with Molly-Mae Hague, 20, who went on to finish as runners up.

Speaking to Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes during an episode of This Morning, Lucie said: 'As we were best friends, we didn't really have that romance.

'When he came out his shell, I really liked him. I spent so much time with him, he was hilarious!

'I needed to get it off my chest and tell him how I felt. I helped Molly-Mae and Tommy get together, so I actually encouraged their relationship.' 

Since exiting the Love Island villa weeks before the final, Lucie hasn't been short of attention, even attracting an Instagram follow from Spider-Man star Tom Holland.

Sources close to the reality TV star have said that she 'is not fazed' by the attention, as she has dated well-known men in the past.
