This week Jess Shears and Dom Lever announced they are getting MARRIED, after meeting just three months ago on Love Island.

They pair are hoping to wed next summer – so if all goes to plan, it will be the first Love Island wedding.

And now Jess and Dom are apparently set to star in a new show documenting the run up to the wedding.

A source told The Sun: "They’re currently in talks with telly bosses to star in a Newlyweds show in the run-up to the big day. TV chiefs are really keen to nab the ‘first Love Island wedding’ as it’s a guaranteed viewing hit.

“And by the time it airs, Love Island fever will have struck the nation all over again following the next series.”

The show is set to be similar to the Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey Newlyweds show, which aired in the early noughties.

Although it looks like Jess and Dom are hoping to have the first Love Island wedding, they're not the first to get engaged.

Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland, from last year's series, got engaged in December last year, and have set a date for the ceremony in September 2018.

And, the previous year, Jon Clark – who now stars in TOWIE – got engaged to his Love Island other half Hannah Elizabeth, but they split soon after.

Speaking about Dom's proposal, Jess said: "It happened the night before the TV Choice Awards. We were staying in a lovely apartment in London.

"Dom filled it with flowers and had got us a bottle of champagne. I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat when Dom got down on one knee - he said afterwards that he had never seen me smile like that."

The pair also revealed they're hoping to wed abroad – potentially somewhere like Santorini or the south of France.
