When it comes to the likelihood of Love Island couples staying together, Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury are one pairing we've never doubted. The couple met on Love Island in 2019 and have since gone from strength to strength in their relationship.

The couple are known to be one of Love Island's most popular pairings, with a combined following of more than 12.5million on Instagram alone. Since their season aired, they have both been busy building their empires.

Molly-Mae has had a number of business successes including her own brand, Filter by Molly-Mae, a collaboration deal with Starbucks, and her role as creative director of fashion house Pretty Little Thing which she only recently stepped down from.

Tommy has also seen success come his way following his stint on Love Island. The brother of famous boxer Tyson Fury has paved his own way in the boxing world, with a total of nine fights (and nine wins!) under his belt.

Now, the couple are engaged, and we have all the details on how it happened, and how Tommy planned the surprise of a lifetime for Molly-Mae.

Since becoming official in the Love Island villa, Molly-Mae and Tommy have reached a number of relationship milestones, including buying a home together and having a child, so it came as no surprise when Tommy decided to get down on one knee and propose to his girlfriend of four years. 

Sharing the news to their 12.7million followers combined, the couple posted a video of the sweet proposal on 23rd July with the caption, "Forever. 23/07/23💍😭"

The video, which had RuthAnne's song The Vow playing over it, showed Molly-Mae walking down the stairs wearing a white wedding jumpsuit and beachy half up half down hairstyle. It then cuts to Tommy, standing in a suit on the side of a cliff, holding their daughter Bambi, surrounded by flowers and a scenic view.

Tommy then proceeds to pass Bambi to Molly-Mae, and gets down on one knee to propose to the fashion influencer with a view of the sea and cliffs behind them. 

Fans and fellow celebs rushed to congratulate the pair on their exciting news, including recently married Stacey Solomon, and bride-to-be Georgia Kousoulou.  

How Did Tommy Fury Propose to Molly-Mae?

Since their engagement announcement, Molly-Mae has opened up about how her boxer boyfriend planned the elaborate gesture, and why she was so surprised.

She shared a picture of the couple holding hands and smiling to her Instagram stories, explaining how Tommy had planned the proposal by tricking her into thinking they had a brand event to go to. She wrote, "[This was] just before we were leaving for a 'brand event' we'd both been invited to...fake invites, fake emails, notes in the hotel room from the brand, everyone playing along so unbelievably well...

"I've never known a surprise to be pulled off like this. I was COMPLETELY and utterly fooled."

Explaining the moment she realised something special was about to happen, Molly-Mae wrote, "It was only when we pulled up to the 'event' and Tommy jumped out of the car and ran off and I was handed a letter that I realised all was not what it seemed."

Resharing the video of the proposal, she added, "I walked down a very steep hill to find these two waiting for me... AND @thisisruthanne singing my favourite song. He couldn't have made the moment any more perfect. Flying my glam team over, my videographers, my favourite singer... I just can't get over it."

Molly-Mae then shared a sweet snap of her holding her daughter Bambi whilst getting ready for the 'event' that her and Tommy were off to. She captioned it, "Getting ready with my perfect girl who we said goodbye to for the evening...little did I know she was on her way to meet us there."

How Did Molly-Mae & Tommy Fury Meet?

Molly-Mae and Tommy met on series 5 of Love Island in 2019, and, although they are one of the show's biggest success stories, neither one of them were an original islander. Tommy was the first bombshell to enter the villa in his series, and initially had his sights set on Lucie Donlan, who is now engaged to series 6 contestant, Luke. 

Molly-Mae entered on day four of the 2019 series and instantly turned Tommy's head. Though they ended the series as boyfriend and girlfriend, and very much in love, the start of their romance had its fair share of drama.

While Tommy tried to decide between Molly-Mae and Lucie, Molly-Mae had her own decisions to make, having taken an interest in Anton Danyluk and Danny Williams, as well as the famous boxer.

A few days later, Tommy and Molly-Mae decided they only had eyes for each other, but the drama soon arose once again when Maura Higgins entered the villa. Tommy's head was initially turned by the Irish model, but after just 24 hours he was all in on Molly-Mae.

For the remainder of the series, fans watched as their relationship went from strength to strength. They survived Casa Amor week with flying colours - who could ever forget the emotional moment Tommy stood waiting for Molly-Mae to return with Elly Belly in his hands!? 

The couple became official in the villa, too, when Tommy asked Molly-Mae to be his girlfriend. He planned a really sweet TV moment with the help of villa bestie and dancer Curtis Pritchard. 

Despite being (arguably) the most successful couple to have come from the show in its history, Tommy and Molly-Mae didn't win their series of Love Island. The £50,000 cash prize was won by Geordie Amber Gill and her partner, Greg O'Shea, a rugby player from Ireland, but the pair split just five weeks after winning. 

Are Molly-Mae & Tommy Fury Married?

Molly-Mae and Tommy aren't married yet - but they only just announced their engagement, so we'll give them a little bit of planning time. Despite having just got engaged, we're pretty certain theirs will be one of the very exciting celebrity weddings to look forward to in 2024, along with Vicky Pattison's wedding and a few more famous nuptials.
