Love Island stars Luke Mabbott and Lucie Donlan’s relationship keeps going from strength to strength after they recoupled outside the villa and now they’ve taken another major step by adopting a new addition.

After teasing plans to start a brood of their own last year, Luke and Lucie have revealed they’re the proud new parents of an adorable rescue dog they named Bunny.

Much like their fellow Islander Olivia Attwood, who also recently adopted a pet pooch with her fiancé Bradley Dack, the couple worked with charity The Pack Project to rescue Bunny from Romania, where she was found abandoned underneath a car.

Taking to Instagram to share their first family photo, Luke wrote, “Meet mine and Lucie’s rescue puppy BUNNY 🐰🐶 the name Bunny is because she was took in and rescued on Easter 🐣 Bunny is a 6 month old cross between a Labrador x Romanian shepherd.”

He continued, “She’s the most gentle, caring loving rescue I’ve ever seen, it was our first night with her last night and she was amazing, proud dad moment! 🤪 Giving her a new life is the most amazing feeling ever! She was found under a car from living on the streets for 5 month of her life until she was found by the @thepackprojectuk 💙

“Bunny has lived half her life with no love, no home and no family. @thepackprojectuk have been amazing through everything and have helped so much! Can’t thank them enough for giving us my dream dog and also a best friend for life.”

Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.

Lucie also shared a snap of her own and added, “Rescuing a dog means so much more to me and Luke, and it’s something we’ve both wanted to do for a very long time. Giving this lovely little girl a new life means the world to us. We will make sure she has the life she deserves 🌏.

“We’ve rescued her from Romania because we read into what The Pack Project do for so many dogs, and the thought of rescuing Bunny also frees up another spot in the shelter charity for a dog to then also go onto a good home makes our heart full with joy the thought of saving two dogs.

“Bunny is the most perfect dog we could ever ask for, so kind natured and loving 🐶.”

Adopting a dog together is the latest big step in Luke and Lucie’s relationship after the Justin Bieber lookalike revealed a huge tattoo tribute to his girlfriend after almost a year of dating.

Luke’s certainly no stranger to an inking or two and has expanded his collection to celebrate his relationship with Lucie, with the clearly delighted surfer showing off the tattoo on her Instagram story as she explained the meaning behind the sweet gesture.

Alongside a photo of the new ink, she wrote, “Luke got two nurse sharks representing us 😍 because we swam with them in the Maldives… he’s the cutest 🥺.”
