With ITV now producing double the Love Island content every year, even the most diehard of fans could be forgiven for momentarily forgetting those LI relationships that didn't quite warrent their own reality spin-off series. They can't all be Ekin-Su and Davide, can they?
Aside from those rare, wholesome few that gallop off into the sunset together, most Love Island relationships – like that of Love Island 2022 stars Deji Adeniyi and Lacey Edwards – can be compared to sparklers; they're seasonal, they're pretty, they attract our attention for literally seconds, but they always ALWAYS fizzle out into nothing. No shade to those relationships, it's just the name of the game when your quest for love finds you on the most talked about show in Britain.
So to answer that question, no, Deji and Lacey are no longer an item (although Deji looks like he's moved on to another stunner – more on that in a bit). In fact, they were a particularly disappointing sparkler (mainly because we absolutely LOVED them on the show together).
2022 bombshells Deji and Lacey met in the last few days of their Love Island journey and had some serious chemistry from the get go (despite being voted "least compatible" by Love Island viewers). Sadly, they called it quits within days of being dumped from the villa last summer, following a particularly awkward encounter at the Love Island reunion.
A Love Island source toldThe Sunlate last summer that it was officially over between the two and that Deji's connection to another 2022 bombshell was the "final straw between them".
The source revealed, “Everyone could tell it was awkward between them at the reunion after Lacey delivered some home truths. Now they've called it quits and are no longer seeing each other.
"Lacey didn't want to force something that wasn't meant to be and then the rumours about Deji andCoco Lodgewere the final straw between them."
Sadly, that potential sparkler never got lit (as far as we know).
But what's Deji up to these days? Almost a year on, is he still single and looking to mingle? Well, we've already kind of given that one away, haven't we?
