They’re the Romeo and Juliet of our time, apparently, and Love Island’s Dom Lever and Jess Shears only get more fated to fail as each day and reality TV plot twist passes.
ITV reality and TV romantic, Dom, is planning to propose to Jess once they are reunited. Now Dom has been booted out of the Mallorcan villa, following in his beau’s footsteps, that looks set to happen sooner rather than later.
This proposition comes after Jess allegedly cheated on Dom with Mike, which viewers think is evidenced in this clip below:

Dom told The Sun:
Jess and I were on a really good run. If it carries on like that outside the villa then I do see myself proposing. I fell in love with her. It was so difficult for me to admit that to Jess. I cried when she left the villa. I’ve cried more in the last four weeks than I have in the last ten years of my life.
Both viewers and his fellow islanders can attest to that, and some of the new Love Island contestants have warned Dom away from Jess.
You can watch their protests in the footage below:

Of the cheating allegations, Dom said:
I haven’t spoken to Jess at all but I plan on meeting her tomorrow and talking face to face. If she did sleep with Mike then I can’t know her in a romantic way anymore. If she says it isn’t true I will believe her.
The saga continues when the pair will reunite on screen during Sunday’s Aftersun spinoff on ITV2.
