It took a while, but Love Island ‘s Marcel Somerville has FINALLY got his first kiss in the villa.
Gabby Allen has succumbed to the Blazin Squad star’s charms and puckered up.
Admitting her feelings for him in the Beach Hut, she says: “I have had butterflies but I don’t have them all the time. Maybe that’s because everything’s so chilled.
“My heart has flipped a couple of times. Oh God that sounds so cringe doesn’t it.
“The more I get chatting to Marcel, the more we have one on one time, the more I’m gravitating towards him.
“He’s so interesting and I find him really charming and he’s obviously trying to play it cool.”
Having worked out together in the garden, Marcel agrees: “It’s going really well with Gabby. I’m kind of liking her a lot.
“She’s kind of got a lot of similarities to me. There’s obviously a bit of chemistry there.
“They always say a couple that trains together, stays together, so you never know what’s going to happen.”
Later that night, when Gabby suggests Marcel would do well as a personal trainer, he replies: “I’d be a great PT because obviously I build up people’s confidence all the time. I’m not saying I’m building up your confidence.
“You don’t need to build up your confidence. You should already know that you’re banging.”
He adds: “I’m happy you know. You’re my girl in here, that I want to spend time with.”
Gabby replies: “We’ve got all the time in the world. I’m excited, because I think there’s good things coming.”
The pair then lean in for a passionate embrace.
Having partnered with Marcel at the last re-coupling, good friend Montana immediately gives her seal of approval to the budding romance.
She says: “Marcel and Gabby are just really cute together. They already look quite smitten, so I’m really happy for them both. Especially Marcel.
“He 100% deserves it. And I really hope that it just grows like a love tree from now on.”
