LOVE Island star Tanyel Revan has opened up on her romance with her new man, admitting they actually met before she went on the hit dating show.
Tanyel, 26, failed to find love in South Africa earlier this year, but told fans she’d found her soulmate just two months after landing back in the UK.
But it turns out they’d actually met several years before, and now plan on getting engaged and maybe even having kids in the not too distant future.
The reality star beauty said: “It’s all going so well. I actually knew my boyfriend prior to Love Island but nothing really hit off at the time.
“We were really, really young and this was many years back and we hadn’t spoken for a few years and then when I came out of the villa I bumped into him on a night out in central London.
“We got talking and it just went from there. It’s like it all happened for a reason.”

The couple, who having been living up on a series of romantic holidays to the likes of Cannes and Dubai, could be taking big steps in their relationship soon too.
Tanyel hinted a proposal could be around the corner, adding: “We want to get a house together and get engaged soon.
“I don’t think there’s any chance he’d do it in front of my friends or family – he’s very private – but I want everyone to see it.
“I think it’ll happen abroad and we go away constantly and I don’t know when but I do really think it’ll be soon.”

The brunette beauty, who owns her own hair salon named Revan Hair, also discussed having kids with her beau in the near future.
“He’s very ready for kids and marriage,” Tanyel shared, adding: “I am so on board and I’m so homely in that sense. I am career motivated but also I want a family life too.
“I’d prefer to be engaged before I’m pregnant but if it was down to me I’d be engaged by the end of this year.”
Back in April, Tanyel shared a stunning snap with her partner and called him her “soulmate.”
While Liberty Poole added: “So happy for you.”
As another pal hinted the romance had been going on for some time, writing: “Yessss! Here he is… Love Love Love Power Couple.”
Tanyel entered the villa on day one as an original Islander, but was dumped 23 days later.
Tanyel didn't have an easy journey on Love Island.
She coupled up with winner Kai Fagan on day one, but by day five wanted to explore her connection with Ron Hall.
The pair realised that they were better off as pals and she went back to Kai, but Kai wanted to get to know other girls.
Tanyel then recoupled with Ron AGAIN in a friendship couple.
But she was forced out after the Love Island's boys were given all the power – and Ron, who many thought she really wanted a relationship with, did not save the London hair stylist.
