Who was Joe Garratt with on Love Island season five?

Joe took part in Love Island series five in 2019, alongside the likes of Molly-Mae, Anton, Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard. He arrived on day one of the show and quickly bonded with surfer Lucie.

He and Lucie stayed together throughout the series until he was dumped when one girl and one boy from the two couples with the least public votes were kicked out by the other Islanders.

He and Lucie then rekindled their relationship in the real world – more on that below.

What happened with Joe Garratt and Lucie Donlan?

Joe may have been dumped just over two weeks into his villa experience, leaving behind partner Lucie, but they reconnected when they were both back in the UK.

They weren’t together for very long, choosing to keep their relationship secret. However they were soon were accused of a ‘showmance’, which Lucie addressed in an interview with the tabloids: “We wanted to get to know each other and didn’t want everyone else knowing. So we got together seriously... and it shows that it’s real.”

They split in December that year after simply growing apart. Lucie is now engaged to 2020 Islander Luke Mabbott.
