Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham Announce 'Engagement' Three Months After Winning Love Island

by helen@hitched

Love Island winner Dani Dyer 'announced' her engagement to boyfriend Jack Fincham on Tuesday morning - but all was not quite as it seemed.

The pair fell in love on the ITV2 show in the summer and had previously discussed plans to marry in 2019 so fans were delighted when Dani shared a picture of an engagement ring on her finger on Instagram.

"I said YES! My soulmate," she captioned a shot of her hand and a simple diamond ring, appearing to confirm the happy news.

But the entire engagement was a prank planned by Roman Kemp on Capital FM that morning, much to the shock of fans.

Dani was a guest on The Breakfast Show and challenged to a game of Dani's Dares where members of the public could submit their dastardly tasks for the reality star.

And the dare that came out the hat? Announce your engagement to Jack on social media.

Always game for a laugh, Dani shared the shot with her millions of followers on both Twitter and Instagram before revealing Jack was still asleep in bed and had no idea what was going on.

We expect he's in for quite the surprise!

Fans were heartbroken that the news wasn't real, with one tweeting, "I can't believe you did us dirty like that," and many others left still trying to process it was a prank.

"I fell! I wish it was true! You make a lovely couple!" wrote another fan.

It wasn't so far beyond reality as Jack had admitted that he would like to marry Dani before the end of next year.

The pen salesman told The Sun: “We’re getting married next year, 100 per cent. Like my mum said to me so many times, ‘When you know about someone, you just know’.

“And now I know what she’s talking about. I just know that’s what we want to do.”

Jack and Dani, daughter of EastEnders actor Danny Dyer, coupled up right at the start of the show and stayed solid through to the end.

There's history behind a quick Love Island engagement too, with both Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen, and Dom Lever and Jess Shears getting a ring on their fingers within months of leaving the villa.
