Love Island’s Joe Garrett confirms relationship with model Desiree Scholtz

Love Island’s Joe Garratt and his new girlfriend Desiree Scholtz looked loved up as they frolicked on the beach in the Maldives this week.

The pair co-ordinated their swimwear ensembles – both in white – as they held hands and strolled along the surf.

Joe showed off his muscled torso as he laughed with Desiree as the hot sun beat down on them.

Model Desiree wore a swimsuit with one diagonal sash across her torso and a cut-out at the waist, showing off her toned abs.

She let her bronzed complexion do the talking and wore her salt-tousled raven locks loosely around her shoulders.

The pair larked around in the sea and giggled together, clearly enjoying their sun-kissed stay.

Joe flew out to the Maldives to see Desiree this week, as she was out there there already.

This comes as Joe’s former Love Island match, Lucie Donlan, goes from strength-to-strength with this year’s ex-contestant Luke Mabbott.

The pair showed they’re still going strong last week when Luke shared a snap of himself cuddling with Lucie on the beach after a surf session in Newquay.

Posing with his arms wrapped around the blonde beauty as he sat behind her, the 25-year-old Justin Bieber lookalike also dedicated a few gushing words to his belle.

Captioning the image, the handsome reality star wrote: ‘In life it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with… I’m so lucky and forever grateful to have you @lucierosedonlan And yes… we live in wetsuits!’

Responding to her beau’s post, Lucie, 22, wrote under the snap: ‘Your so special to me… bring on making more memories with you.’ [sic]

She also took to her Instagram Stories to share footage of herself and Luke skateboarding, alongside the caption: ‘Got him skating now haven’t I.’

The following day, the lovebirds were all smiles as they were spotted arriving at Newquay Airport ahead of jetting off together.

Lucie wrapped up for a windy weather in a cream fluffy jacket, which she teamed with a black top and green combat trousers.

Meanwhile, Luke looked casually cool in a black graphic T-shirt, with matching jogging bottoms and chequerboard Van slip-ons and a baseball cap.

It comes after Lucie went public with her Love Island beau Luke at the start of July.

Soon after the announcement, Luke branded the surfer his ‘partner in crime’ in a sweet social media post.

The former heating engineer and the model looked loved-up as they shared a hug on the beach during a romantic surfing trip in Yorkshire.

Just hours after going Instagram official, the Luke’s ex-girlfriend Demi Jones – who he was partnered up with on Love Island’s winter 2020 series – appeared to make a thinly-veiled dig at her co-star as she liked a tweet about being ‘better off alone’.

Luke and Lucie sported matching wetsuits as they put on a cosy display in the image uploaded to the hunk’s platform, which he captioned: ‘My partner in crime.’

The surfer commented: ‘Youuuu’ with a heart-eyed emoji, while fellow Love Islander Luke Trotman, who confirmed the pair’s romance days earlier, cheekily wrote: ‘Double date but no surfing.’ (sic)

In June, auburn-haired beauty Demi, 22, broke her silence on her split from Luke, ruling out any chance of a reconciliation.

They officially called it quits in May, a decision she claims was encouraged by the Redcar native. 

In an interview with MailOnline, she said: ‘We’ve completely called it off now, I think it was brought about more from his behalf than mine, but we’re mutual and friendly.’ 

Before dating Demi, Luke was coupled up with former VIP hostess Jess Gale and Casa Amor bombshell Natalia Zoppa, both 21, during his stint on Love Island’s first-ever winter series earlier this year.

Blonde beauty Lucie was in an on-off six-month relationship with catering company owner Joe Garratt, 23, and previously dated male model Charlie Frederick.
