Love Island star Connagh Howard has gone public with new girlfriend Beth Dunlavey, who starred in the second series of The Circle.

The pair were first linked earlier this year after his failed villa romances with Sophie Piper and Rebecca Gormley and now they’ve made things Instagram official after sharing a series of loved-up snaps.

In a nod to his Love Island days, Connagh shared a photo of him and his new bae with the caption, “So the girl I would like to couple up with is... 👩🏽‍🤝‍👨🏾.”

Beth shared some snaps of her cosying up to the 28-year-old on her own profile and wrote, “You’re the best thing I never knew I needed 💛.”

Aww, could these two get any cuter?

It’s thought that Connagh, who unveiled an incredible body transformation after leaving the villa, swapped messages with Beth on social media earlier this year and began dating after meeting up for the first time in London before lockdown began.

A source told The Sun, “They met up in London after messaging over Instagram since Connagh left the villa.

“They both came into London, had dinner at Honest burger, then had drinks at Novikov.

“They stayed the night at Melia Hotel in Kensington before leaving the next day. They really like each other and they're seeing how things go.”
