Scottish gym owner Anton Danyluk has hinted that Love Island winners Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea won't last on the outside, because the Irish charmer is "too nice for her".

The 24-year-old was over the moon to see Amber win the show with Greg, who was only in the villa for 12 days before he walked away with his half of the £50,000 cash prize.

Speaking to Heat magazine, Anton hinted Greg could almost be too good to be true;

"He's a genuinely nice guy and Amber's been through everything in there and I'm so happy for her to finally find someone who is perfect for her."

He added; "But I think he might be too nice for her, that's the problem."

Amber had a tumultuous time in the villa after Michael Griffiths dumped her for Joanna Chimonides after Casa Amor, speaking badly of her behind her back.

Luckily, Greg arrived just before the end of the series and swept Amber off her feet with his charm. Anton commented: "It's so refreshing that it's went on a different journey".

He added; "Usually it's couples that couple up at the start they go right through to the end loved up.

"Whereas Amber's gone on this mad journey she's been through her ups and her downs and then Greg's come in at the end – lovely guy – and I'm really happy for them."

The Scotsman couldn't help but laugh about how the rugby player won £25,000 after only two weeks in the villa; "Greg honestly what a guy. He completed Love Island didn't he?"

"He came in for two weeks, 25 grand better off. He found love and had a two week holiday, what more could you do?"

Anton coupled up with Belle Hassan on the show, and was asked to predict which partnership will be the first to end outside of the villa.

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, who were runners up on the hit ITV show, are going strong and remain the only official boyfriend/girlfriend couple.

He replied: "When it comes to the outside it's going to be so difficult for everyone."

"Everyone is busy, there's the distance obviously involved as well and going from seeing each other 24 hours a day to maybe seeing each other once or twice a week. If you want it to work it'll work."

How could anyone break up with Greg?! Or Amber?! We're praying to the Goddess of Love Aphrodite that they work out.

Newly crowned Greg O'Shea, AKA the King of Limerick, is BACK with a huge bang at Shannon airport this morning.

Amber Gill won't be getting her paws back on her fellow winner Greg for a while, judging by all those photos and autographs he has to get through.

The Love Island winner has returned to the Emerald Isle after winning the reality show with Newcastle beauty Amber, despite only knowing her for 12 days. The Irish charm always comes out on top…

Since leaving the villa, the rugby player has spent time in Geordie-land with his new lady, meeting all of her friends and family, but the time has come for him to see his boys once more.

Shannon airport pulled out all the stops for his return, setting up a decorated part of the airport in his honour filled with confetti and balloons. His fans must be in the millions at this stage.

You can hear the screams from miles away, as hundreds of people waited in anticipation to see their king land on Irish soil.

He's 100 percent our type on paper, that's for sure, and Ireland really does give the best welcomes. Time will tell whether he'll stay in Ireland or move over to the UK to be with Amber.

So far, he's talked about investing his half of the prize money, as well as getting facial surgery for a broken nose and fractured skull. He also wants to sit his solicitor exams, because he's perfect.

He walked into that villa, treated Amber like the queen she is and walked away with 25,000 pounds to show for it. See what happens when you're not a gaslighting villain like Michael?

Amber Gill's long-time BFF Mart Tweedy is backing her and Greg O'Shea to win Love Island.

Mart said he's over the moon to witness Amber looking so relaxed and happy with the 24-year-old rugby player from Limerick, who came into the villa just when her drama with Michael Griffiths was coming to an end.

“He’s Irish with muscles, what’s not to like?” he told OK! magazine. Amen to that. “He’s such a gentleman.

Her pal continued; "Her mum thinks he’s a really nice guy. We’re really impressed with him.

"He’s exactly the type of person Amber would go for. They have the same humour and he gets her banter, which is what she needs.”

Tweedy expressed his relief that Amber chose to couple up with Greg instead of Michael, who previously rejected her for Joanna Chimonides.

“I think Michael only wanted her back because he saw her laughing and happy with Greg. He was jealous,” he said.

“It would have been difficult for Amber to build trust with Michael. I think it would have brought back memories of when she was hurt in the past.”

Tweedy is running Amber's social media account during her time on the show, also claimed that Amber would never have sex in the villa.

“Never in a million years. She’s been getting requests on Instagram from companies like Babestation and Pornhub,” he said.

"They basically want her to do saucy photographs and videos. I’m messaging straight back and saying, ‘She wouldn’t be interested in this at all’.”

Greg has been gaining an onslaught of fans since arriving to the show, with viewers adoring how well he treats Amber.

Curtis Pritchard's best friend doesn't believe that his romance with Maura Higgins will last on the outside.

Childhood friend Chloe Hewitt thinks the Longford grid girl is too overpowering for the professional dancer.

Maura’s Instagram following has boomed since she entered the Love Island villa a month ago.

The pair argued over his involvement in Jordan Hames' controversial decision to confess his feelings for India Reynolds after just making Anna Vakili his girlfriend, behind her back.

Hewitt told OK! magazine that she's adapting to the couple, but isn't confident that they'll last.

“It could be a summer romance, and then they’ll come back to reality,” she said. I do believe Maura likes him. I love that she’s upfront and feisty, but I think she’s a bit overpowering.

“He’s found a bit of fun in Maura. Curtis is thinking about now and not the future.”

Hewitt also said that Maura is Curtis' type, and that he loves to be tested;

“She’s gorgeous, but she also seems to have a lot of layers, and that could be intriguing to him. He would see her as a bit of a challenge,” she said.

We'll see what happens tonight. With just two episodes left before the final, can Greg and Amber snatch it from Tommy and Molly Mae?

Jennifer Lawrence has been absolutely loved UP with art dealer Cooke Maroney for almost a year, and her publicist announced the pair's engagement earlier this month.

We're delighted for the 28-year-old Oscar winning actress, but we're really just DYING to see the ring. J-Law has been photographed with it multiple times since the proposal, but today is the first time a high-resolution snap has been taken of the ring.

From grainy, distance pictures to a crystal clear image, we have Dior to thank for it. Lawrence was announced as the face of the brand seven years ago, and she appeared at their Paris Fashion Week show today sporting the dazzling rock on her finger.

The actress attended the Fall/Winter 2019 Dior presentation alongside famous faces like Cara Delevigne and Karlie Kloss, and showed off her new accessory.

Maroney's ring is minimal in design, with a large emerald-cut diamond hanging off the platinum band. It's arguably a more modern take on a classic combo, as the stone isnit centred on the band.

Lawrence wore the ring with a tailored A-line short dress and plaid heels for the event, and the ring is speculated to cost around $200,000. It's roughly four to five carats, so Maroney didn't come to play.

Andrew Fox, President of SuperJeweler.com, gave ELLE the lowest carat estimate for the engagement ring;

"Jennifer's ring, which is surprisingly modest, appears to be a three-to-four carat emerald shape diamond," he said. "While I'm certain that it's of very fine colour and clarity, Cooke Maroney most likely paid over $200,000." WOWZA.

She was first spotted wearing it while the couple were on a date in New York City at Raoul's in early February. "It was a giant rock," as a witness quoted at the time. "They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it. The ring was very noticeable.” I mean, it's huge, so it's hard not to notice.

Lawrence was previously in relationships with Nicholas Hoult, Chris Martin and Mother! director Darren Aonofsky. This is her first engagement, but Lawrence opened up about marriage to Vogue in 2015;

"I can't wait to be married. I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f*ck it up."

When asked about bridesmaids by Vanity Fair in 2016, interestingly she said; "Weddings rock, but… there needs to be a bridesmaids' union. It's horrendous… If I do ever get married, I don't think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?"

We can't WAIT for this wedding, it's sure to be a big celebrity bash with many a famous face.

He sees it, he likes it, he wants it, he GETS IT. America's Next Top Model icon Nyle DiMarco, who is also an avid activist for the ASL community, has created his own version of Ariana Grande's 7 Rings music video in American Sign Language.

AND IT'S AMAZING. With DiMarco's assistance, the video was directed by Jake Wilson, and features a range of models absolutely slayin' the game to Ariana's number one hit song, alongside closed captions.

DiMarco was the second male winner and first winner who is hard of hearing to be crowned America's Next Top Model. He's been a public advocate for closed-captioning videos for the deaf community ever since.

He asked Grande herself via Twitter to request that her thank u, next video be available with closed captioning for the “466 million people with hearing loss” who want to view the art too.

"Deaf here and we do enjoy your music," Nyle added. He has been campaigning for representation for years, and has achieved some major milestones while he's at it.

He also reached out to Vevo, writing, "You earn more than $650 million per year and can't even add captions to Ariana Grande's thank u, next video."

"There ARE closed caption service that will cost you ONLY six dollars (or less) to instantly appeal to a wider audience," he added.

"There are 466 million people with hearing loss, thank u, next."

YAS HENNY. He's right, of course. The deaf community face struggles with music videos daily, with only a handful of major artists providing closed-captions on their video work.

Grande took notice of the criticism, and made sure that when her 7 Rings music video debuted this month, there were lyrics available to read onscreen

DiMarco has now released an ASL version of whole iconic music video, and he's looking INCREDIBLE in a diamanté fishnet top;

Him and his male model pals are killin' it in the video, recreating Ariana's girl power song with American Sign Language to boot. Fair play lads, fair play.

Representation matters, and we all have to play a role in encouraging the fight against albeism.

Nyle continues to break down the barriers for his community, we're so glad Ari took notice.

Things are looking rosy for Kirsten Mate Maher this morning, in light of her win last night. 

The 21-year-old student and part-time model was crowned the 2018 Rose of Tralee.

Representing Waterford, Kirsten was a hot favourite to win the contest.

The student is the third mixed-race woman to secure the title.

Before her, was 1998 winner Luzveminda O’Sullivan and Clare Kambamettu, who took the crown in 2010.

Since the humble beginnings of the show in 1959, Kirsten is the first African-Irish woman to win the competition.

The 21-year-old couldn't believe she had won as her parents joined her on stage, she confessed she was "speechless."

The Rose works in a boutique in Tramore, Co Waterford, but earlier this week she discovered that Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) was waiting for her.

Kirsten had been accepted to study Multimedia and Application Development at the university.

However, in light of her win, WIT might have to wait another year.

“I certainly did not think it would be me. I haven’t clicked any buttons yet. I might have to click on the defer button,” she explained.

“I haven’t thought this far ahead. I really haven’t. I don’t know what I am going to do yet. I’ll have to make a few plans.”

Kirsten parents met in Waterford when her father, Kwalo Mate, an army officer from Zambia, was training in the Curragh.

He bumped into his future wife while enjoying some down time in Waterford.

Despite her father returning to Zambia before her birth and not reuniting with Kirsten until she was almost two, the pair have a special bond.

“I still have the teddy bear he gave me,” she said.

The 21-year-old takes pride in her Zambian heritage but has expressed her desire for the press to not focus on the colour of her skin.

“It is something you touch off but you don’t dwell on too much. There is a lot more to me than the colour of my skin and my hair,” she said.

The student is planning to keep in touch with the culture and her Zambian relatives were even tuning into the Irish programme.

“My Dad was over in Zambia last month and he was filling them in what the Rose of Tralee is. I don’t know what they are going to think when they find out about this. They are probably all in bed now.

“I like to stay in touch with my Zambian culture. I can’t wait to go back there. It’s the first thing on the list this year.”

Congratulations to Kirsten! And well done to all the 57 roses.

After a fabulous Pride month, there is another huge reason to keep the celebrations going in the LGBTQ community. 

For the first time ever, a transgender woman has been victorious in the competition for the Miss Spain title. 

Angela Ponce took home the crown on June 29th, beating out 22 other contestants. 

And now she'll take it one step further, by competing to become the next Miss Universe in the Philippines this December. 

Angela took to Instagram to share her joy at this momentous achievement. 

''Today I have fulfilled a dream that I always had,'' she wrote in Spanish. ''I'm going to the @missuniverse, with the awareness and commitment to carry forward a message of inclusion, respect, tolerance, love for oneself, love for others.''

Social media has largely backed Angela's victory, with one user saying that, ''trans can participate in any scenario, in the perspective of an inclusive society.''

Others were not so happy with the news, with one person commenting that, ''I agree that it is a revolutionary idea in pushing the definition of a woman. On the other side, I don't wanna lose the essence and tradition of our most loved pageant.''

This win is a monumental step when you think of the fact that until six years ago, trans women were actually banned from entering the contest. 

According to Express, the rules were changed after trans model Jenna Talackova threatened legal action against the competition. 

President Paula Shugart later said, ''we have a long history of supporting equality for all women, and this was something we took very seriously.”

Hopefully this means that more inclusion in pageants worldwide will soon be a reality.
