Love Island star Ollie Williams engaged to girlfriend he left the show for

The stars of ITV’s Love Island join the show to find love, but one former contestant actually left the villa in the name of love.

Cornish aristocrat Ollie Williams joined the cast of the 2020 series of Love Island in search of love, but after just three days in the villa he left, declaring he was still in love with someone outside of the show.

And it looks like he made the right decision, as three years later the couple are still very happily together, and have just announced their engagement.

Ollie and new fiancée Laura Nofer announced the news on Instagram on Sunday, revealing they’d gotten engaged the day before whilst visiting Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest hill on Bodmin Moor.

Ollie shared the snap of him and Laura on top of the hill beaming at the camera, captioning the photo “Strange things happen up on the moor”. The carousel of images also showed a shot of Laura’s new engagement ring, a stunning round diamond on a slim band.

Fans of the aristocrat were keen to congratulate them, although one commenter pointed out something suspiciously absent from the photo, joking: “Congratulations to you both…those knees look suspiciously clean though Ollie. Don't tell me you didn't get down on at least one of them.”

The pair looked at home in the wild countryside, both opting for green jackets and long boots, with Laura wearing taupe coloured leggings while Ollie stuck with a classic pair of jeans and a wide brim hat.

Ollie is known for his frequent snaps of life in the countryside, sharing pictures of him out and about with his working gun dogs and friends.

The aristocrat previously found himself in hot water with animal rights group PETA after posting a gory photo of deer he had shot and killed whilst hunting.

The Cornish native lists himself as a professional hunter in his Instagram biography, and was exposed for his trophy hunting whilst appealing on Love Island.

During his very brief time in the villa, Ollie initially coupled up with fellow contestant Paige Turley, but it wasn’t long before he decided to follow his heart.

Taking to the villa’s beach hut, Ollie explained: “I have to be honest with myself, and everyone, that I do still love someone else. I have to follow my heart in this scenario and it would be wrong for me to ignore these feelings.

“At the end of the day, this is Love Island and it's about finding love. 'If I carried on anything with Paige, or any other girl that might come into the villa, it wouldn't be fair on them.”

Ollie promptly left the villa and rekindled his romance with Laura, and their recent news confirms he made the right decision.
