Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley came fourth in this years Love Island, and while couples are faltering around them in the five months thats passed since they left the villa, the London lovers have remained strong.
Just days after Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer split and then promptly reunited, all in the public eye while previously saying their relationship wasnt meant to be long-term as accusations of publicity-hunting were thrown about, presenter Josh thinks it was not a bad thing he wasnt one of the sweetheart couples with Kaz.
In a moment that will go down in loyalty history, Josh and Kaz shacked up in casa Amor, leaving the country out for blood upon seeing Georgia Steeles tears.
Which has worked in their favour because, as Josh reckons, while everyone is supportive of them now, there was no expectations on them to the level of other couples.
I dont think its been that far of a reach transitioning to real life because Kaz is a south London girl and she doesnt mess about. She says it how it is and I think shes a bit of a realist as well, he told Metro.co.uk.
We dont put pressure on each other and neither has the public.
We werent the nations favourite, so [they never] expected too much from us. We keep proving people wrong and its happy days.
Everyone is behind us now, you walk down the street and people are super supportive, which we absolutely love.
The former LadBible lad has signed up and donned the Christmas jumped this festive season for a brilliant cause. Competing against singer Aston Merrygold to raise the most money in Londons Kings Cross Underground station wearing Visas first ever contactless Christmas jumper, hes using his platform for the technological good.
Now hes found himself with such a platform and a massive social media following, he wants to use his Love Island fame for good and not just teeth whitening products as his contemporaries.
But if teeth whitening products are your thing, well, he says fair play to you, too. Ever the diplomat.
He added: If you want to use your platform to post pictures, yeah its beneficial for you but sometimes its nice to do something a little deeper and make a difference and hopefully this is the start.

This year hes spending his first Christmas with Kaz, who will contend with Joshs very big family in Luton.
Its going to be super exciting and then were going away straight after that. Its going to be a nice time, he said. Christmas is a nice time to look back on the year and weve both had a great year.
