In the end, it wasn't true love that her Love Island win in 2015.
But Jessica Hayes may have finally found the real deal with business boyfriend Dan, with whom she says things have become 'pretty serious'.
Jessica and Dan - a heavily-tattooed hunk worlds away from former flame Max Morsley - were pictured for the first time this week after spending a few months away in Cape Verde together.

She told MailOnline: 'I've known him a while but things have developed into romance.'
The duo have been on an extended trip on the northwest coast of Africa but they have plans to travel on to Canada later this year.
'We pretty much live together now, we're never apart - it's pretty serious.'

Glamour model Jess looked heavenly in a sporty black bikini, which featured high-waisted bottoms and a buckle across her torso.
Formerly famed for her flame-red hair, Jess now showed off an sun-kissed blone dip dye that complemented her glowing holiday tan.
