Love Island star Dr Alex George has gone Instagram official with his secret girlfriend Ellie and called her the 'apple of his eye'.
The NHS frontline doctor shared a sweet snap of the couple during their holiday in Cornwall.
Dr Alex, 30, and barristers' clerk Ellie Hecht were beaming with joy as they stood at a farm with their arms around each other.
"The [apple emoji] of my eye," he simply captioned the post.
The ITV2 star held onto a pint of cider in one hand while his other hand was holding onto Ellie.
In one snap, Dr Alex planted a big kiss on her forehead while she had her hand on his chest.
The barristers' clerk had on a flowy red skirt and a simple black vest, which she teamed with aviator sunglasses.
Meanwhile, Dr Alex kept it simple with black shorts, a lime green t-shirt and sunglasses.

His friends took to the post to congratulate the couple on their love.
"Couple goals [heart emoji]," singer Josh Cuthbert commented.
Love Island stars Samira Amighty and Josh Denzel posted red heart emojis while a fan wrote: "Perfect. If anyone deserves happiness it’s you."
Another commented: "Lovely! You deserve happiness."
It was only recently reported that Alex and Ellie were dating, with a source claiming the two have been dating for several months.
They claimed Ellie has been a 'pillar of support' to Alex following the death of his brother Llŷr, who took his own life at the age of 19 last July.
The two are on holiday in Cornwall
An insider told Mail Online that things between Alex and Ellie are 'getting serious' after a number of romantic holidays.
"They're currently enjoying some much-earned time away in Cornwall, where they've been relaxing and spending time together outdoors.
"They began their trip at Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, staying in a romantic treehouse.

"Alex has had a difficult year, with the passing of his brother, and working nonstop on the frontline. His family are so pleased to see him happy in a new relationship."
Before the two went Instagram official, they had shared a number of photos from the same locations.
Dr Alex was also liking a number of Ellie's posts.
The new relationship comes almost a year after Alex split from his last girlfriend Amelia Bath.
Opening up to fans at the time, Alex blamed the break-up on the health crisis keeping him and Amelia apart in lockdown – admitting they once went 102 days without seeing each other.
