Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen have booked their honeymoon.

The "Love Island" couple are set to tie the knot later this year and have decided that they're going to jet off to Sri Lanka a couple of days after they've exchanged vows.

Writing in her column for new! magazine, Olivia said: "Everyone was clogging up my Instagram feed with photos of the snow last week but all I could think about was orgaising my honeymoon in the sun!

"Alex and I have finally decided on the location - two days after the wedding we're going to Sri Lanka for a week, followed by a week in the Maldives.

It's going to be the perfect mix of an acting holiday followed by blissful relaxation.

"I'm so over the UK's cold weather, although I've barely been outdoors. I had a 24-hour bug and couldn't keep anything down."

But, in the run up to their big day, the pair have decided to jet off to Barbados for a break before the 23-year-old beauty starts filming "Second Chance Dresses".

She said: "I'm excited to say Alex and I have booked a week's holiday in the Caribbean. Take me to the sun ASAP. We're flying to Barbados soon and I can't wait to lie on the sunlounger and not move. It'll be extra special because my mum's going to celebrate her husband's birthday on the island and we overlap for a couple of days.

"In between sunbathing, we're going to swim with turtles and go jet-skiing together. I start filming for "Second Chance Dresses" in a few weeks, so Alex and I thought we'd get our last holiday in before my mad filming schedule starts."
