Ron Hall asks Lana Jenkins to be his girlfriend on Love Island
Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins have become the first official couple on 'Love Island.'
The 25-year-old financial advisor has been dating make-up artist Lana, 25, on the hit ITV2 reality show for a number of weeks now but in scenes aired on Sunday (26.02.23), he asked her to officially become his girlfriend.
Speaking to Lana as part of a private chat, he said: "I know I joke about you not being able to show your feelings but I know you do. We've known how each other feels for a long time now and we've been holding back. We're stronger than ever and I don't think anyone comes close.
"I've never had a relationship for anything like that so for me it's a massive thing. I know we've talked about going exclusive that's not enough for me. I want you to be my girlfriend. It's been in my head for days, wondering how to do it and I couldn't wait any longer."
Through tears, Lana accepted his proposal as she kissed him and said: "Yes! Why are you so cute?"
After becoming the series' first exclusive couple, Lana spoke of becoming Ron's first-ever girlfriend and remarked that the way in which he asked the question was "perfect" as she claimed to have known this was going to happen since they first met.
She said: "I am Ron's first-ever girlfriend. It was so nice, and I feel like Ron just did it in the best way and it was perfect! I came in here looking for love. I knew this was gonna happen, I predicted it. Maybe I should be Mystic Meg!"
Elsewhere, recruitment consultant Casey O'Gorman, 26, recoupled with bombshell arrival Rosie Seabrook, 24, after more than two weeks of dating Claudia Fogarty and tried to explain to his former flame that he is confused over how he feels about either girl.
He said: "I guess that's maybe why I'm in the situation that I am. I don't think after two weeks of getting to know someone that I've been absolutely all on them. I really like Rosie. I just wanted to check in and see if you were all right. I don't feel ready to make a decision, I really don't. I'm in a situation...it's not that I feel now more towards her but I don't know where I'm at. I know that's so hard to hear because you want more than that. Maybe I need to sleep on it.
Claudia replied: "I wanna be how we were but I can't. The only thing that's getting me is that I'm an option and I never wanted to be an option. That's what I'm struggling with that you can't decide whether you like another girl more than me that you've known for two days over someone who you've known for two and a half weeks. I'm not here to waste time."
'Love Island' airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX and can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
