Love Island winners Millie Court and Liam Readron made us believe in happy endings again last summer, while Millie and Lucinda Strafford gave us friendship goals galore. But what if none if it had ever happened? What if we still feared romance was dead and were still crying into a big bag of Maltesers?

Well, according to Millie, that was very nearly the case.

On Instagram this week, she said, “I truly believe everything happens for a reason, little known fact for you all, I was actually supposed to walk into the villa a few days before I did”.

“But it got pushed back so that I could walk in with this one,” she captioned a pic alongside her bestie Lucinda.

We can't bear thinking about it, and nor can Millie.

She continued “I couldn’t have handled beginning my journey of [Love Island] without Lucinda by my side, I was so incredibly nervous, and she was so bubbly and confident, and she helped bring me out of my shell”.

“I also couldn’t believe how incredibly beautiful she was and we created this instant bond and I knew we were going to be friends for life”.

Didn’t we all, hun.

“So grateful the world brought us together, love you my little sis xxxxx”.

This all comes after Millie and Liam took the next big step in their relationship – Ikea meatballs.

Liam asked his one million followers, “Anyone else used to eat all the meatballs at school before you get to the end of the cue so you wouldn’t have to pay?”. With Millie looking shocked, Liam admitted it must just be a “Merthyr thing”.

Liam said “We looked at two apartments today and we are looking at two more tomorrow and we will have a better idea of what we are going with”.

It’s not all plain sailing, though, as the couple shared the problems they faced finding the right towels for their new love nest. Millie’s favorites were out of stock, and Liam complained, “Who knew buying towels could be so hard?”.

The struggle is real, people.

But luckily for them (and for us) there were no arguments, as the couple shared cute photos and Boomerangs and left with a trolley full.

Millie captioned one ‘Our First home shop done’. Our hearts are melting.
