Jessica Shears and Dom Lever are taking their relationship to the next level. The Love Island pair is planning to move in together after reuniting outside the show.

According to The Sun, the couple announced their love for each other before revealing their plans to live under the same roof on the spin-off show Aftersun.

When host Caroline Flack asked them about their relationship status, the lad from Manchester said: "It's official – we are girlfriend and boyfriend."

The couple is planning to buy a house and rent a flat together.

"We're going to buy in Manchester and rent in London...We need bases," he said.

Shears previously said that she was willing to move across the country to be with Lever.

"We need to sort something out straight away because we don't want to spend any more time apart," she told The Daily Star. "I live in Devon and he lives in Manchester."

However, the couple will be spending some time apart. The Devon beauty is heartbroken that they will be separated for a few days.

Shears revealed the news on social media by sharing a photo of the pair rocking over-sized shades with the words, "Last time seeing this one for a few days," followed by two heartbroken emojis.

"Missing going to bed with this guy. Hate that I won't see him for a few days," She has captioned the photo that she has been shared on Instagram.

The couple first sparked rumours of a romance when they were contestants in the Love Island villa, where one of their love sessions was captured on camera.

The Devon beauty and co-star Mike Thalassitis were booted out of the ITV2 show on the same day. At the time, it was rumoured that Shears and Thalassitis had slept together, which was later quashed by Shears.

"I would never cheat on him [Lever]," the 25-year-old reality star previously told The Daily Star.
