Ever since leaving the villa, life has been a whirlwind for former Love Island stars Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page.

They’ve gone from having a totally normal life to being recognised in the street, working on brand deals and attending events, and recently celebrating their one-year anniversary together.

Team VIP caught up with the pair to hear how they’ve been getting on – and to ask some burning questions about their thoughts on this season of Love Island.

Of course, we had to find out how they were finding their first trip to Ireland. Despite being good friends with Dami Hope, he hasn’t brought the duo over to Ireland!

“We haven’t done a double date yet,” Andrew explains, despite the fact he and Indiyiah live next-door. “We keep saying we need to get a takeaway in but we haven’t. That’s the thing about Dami, he’s always out!”

While they’re having a flying visit, Tasha and Andrew promise they’ll be back very soon.

“We’re flying back tonight. But we definitely want to come back to Ireland,” Andrew promises.

As we chat we’re dying to see if the couple are as loved up as they seem online, and from what we cam tell there’s no doubt that these two are happier than ever.

Speaking on what living together is like, Tasha enthuses that her favourite thing is what a “kind”, “loving”, and “great human being” Andrew is. “There’s no faults about you” she said, looking right at him. Our hearts!

Andrew returns the sentiment: “She’s so kind and such a lovely person, you’re so generous and just an incredible girl”. Ahhh, stop.

It’s not all been easy breezy though, and when asked about whether being so exposed has had an effect on their relationship, Tasha got candid.

“I think we’re quite good at just being authentic…and it’s hard. Sometimes you have that pressure like, if I don’t post Andrew, for example, for like a day or two days, people are like ‘Oh my god have you broken up?’ and it’s like no, we also have our privacy and every relationship needs that privacy” she says.

Andrew also shares the importance of having each other as they emerged from the villa to public scrutiny.

“To come out of it single or alone would be very, very hard, and to have each other has definitely helped massively,” he shared. Looking toward Tasha he added, “Because there are ups and downs, with trolls and things like that, it gets to you, and having someone there who’s been through the same situation as you…we have each others back.”

Thankfully, Andrew’s not the only one Tasha’s looking out for. The dancer and influencer has become a passionate ambassador for the deaf community, after being Love Island’s first-ever deaf contestant.

Disability visibility is clearly important to Tasha. She tells us that it’s “one of the biggest reasons why I went on the show. It’s about representation, especially on shows like Love Island you [didn’t] see that representation before”. As for how the show can do better, Tasha feels they could “push it a little more”.

“In terms of, not just have that one person with a disability, have a few more…it’s so important. Me going on the show last year really showed how much it was needed, so I think there’s a long way to go with that.”

Now, Tasha is committed to keeping up the good work.

“Coming out of the show, that’s my passion; it’s raising awareness…that’s why I do the work I’m doing now. Even before the villa, that’s what I was doing. I was never gonna lose that momentum, lose that motivation that makes me happy. Because I want to see other people happy and you know, help them find their confidence in their disability.

“It’s definitely something that I love doing, and won’t ever stop doing.”
