THE moment many Love Island Australia viewers had been waiting for came just days before the show’s grand final.
Josh decided to ‘pop the question’ and asked Anna to be his girlfriend, ahead of the final elimination of the series.

The couple had been laying on the PDA all episode and they were ‘couple goals’ in the Dunk for Love contest – a game testing how well you know your partner – as Josh turned out to know Anna really well, including her favourite fruit.
But after the very wet contest, Josh decided to take their relationship to the next level.
“I’ve decide it’s time to pop the question, I’m going to ask Anna out,” Josh told the other girls, Cynthia, Cartier and Jessie, who squealed in delight and rushed over to hug him.
As the girls distracted Anna, the boys helped Josh set up and laid out a floral path and decorations by the outdoor couch.

Even though they’ve been a solid couple for most of the series, Josh felt pessimistic going in to the proposal.
“I’m not mentally prepared for a no,” he said in the Beach Hut.
Then when the moment came, Josh lead Anna down the floral path and after sitting Anna down on the couch, started his speech to her.
“You honestly make me so happy and nervous,” he began.

“I’ve had one of the best times of my life here and it’s been down to you.
“We’ve got through this together and I feel like you’re one of the nicest, most down-to-earth girls I’ve ever met, and I feel like you just understand me completely and allow me to be me.”
He then asked: “Anna, would you like to be my girlfriend?”
Grinning widely, Anna replied “yeah”.

The other Islanders who had been eavesdropping, emerged from their hiding places to congratulate the new official couple.
Love Island viewers loved the happy moment and rushed to Twitter to express their delight.
“Anna and Josh are so cute together,” wrote one Twitter user.
Another added: “Josh, is definitely the more decent/genuine one (well, at least, seems to be) of the twins.”

And a third said: “I absolutely LOVE Anna on #LoveIslandAUS She’s been a rock for all the girls, never stops smiling, funny, glorious.”
But the happy moment did not last for long, when the Islanders received a text to reveal one couple would be going home that evening.
Not surprisingly Jessie and Todd landed in the bottom two for the second time in a row alongside Cynthia and Aaron.
“Islanders, Australia is now in complete control of who stays and who goes from this Villa,” host Sophie Monk told them.
