Last month, the couple splashed out on a three-storey apartment in an Elizabethan mansion conversion in Essex.

Since then, the loved-up duo have been sharing their house transformation on social media as they put their stamp on their home.

The power couple has seemed to be going from strength to strength and Liam already has his next venture planned out.

The TV hunk recently revealed he hopes to make it as a property tycoon and is starting up his own business to buy, renovate and then sell houses.

Liam revealed: "I loved being a brickie before winning Love Island so I want to go into the property business. 

"I've started looking but will focus on the business in the New Year. I'll start off in Wales because the house prices are a lot cheaper there.

"Plus that's the area where I have all my mates in the same industry. There's an electrician, plumber, carpenter.

They can all help and get involved in the business.  My dad is in the property business too so can give me advice and help out. He's my inspiration for wanting to do it."

Meanwhile The Sun recently revealed Millie is set to become a millionaire after bagging herself a big money deal with fashion giant ASOS.

Love Island fans previously got a sneak peek inside Liam's family life when his mum and dad featured in the meet the families episode back in August.

Liam even seemed to get a a telling off from his dad over his behaviour earlier in the series, which saw him 'cheat' on Millie with bombshell Lillie Haynes in spin-off villa, Casa Amor.

His dad Paul said: "We shouted at the TV a few times," referring to Liam's questionable behaviour.

But he added: "You hold your hand up and you take the blame, well done."
