LOVE Island stars Wes Nelson and Arabella Chi have been pictured together for the first time – hours after The Sun Online revealed they had grown close.
The reality pair were photographed striding into the ITV summer party, with him walking a step in front, while she chatted with Lucie Donlan behind him.
The pair were very likely to have bumped into Wes’ ex Megan Barton-Hanson at the east London event.
She arrived moments later clad in a revealing leopardprint jumpsuit with a friend.
Wes and Arabella grew close after enjoying a romantic dinner together last night and have been getting to know each other in recent weeks.
A source told The Sun there was a definite spark between them, saying: “Wes and Arabella are each other’s types and they have great chemistry.

“They went for an intimate dinner last night in London and really hit it off – they have a lot in common after being on Love Island and both loving fitness.
“It’s really early days but there’s undoubtedly a natural connection between them.”
Wes and Arabella met due to sharing the same management but it wasn’t long before they started meeting up for personal reasons.
Model Arabella, 28, was dumped from Love Island after just a week and was forced to watch ex-partner Danny Williams recouple with Jourdan Riane.

Wes, 21, reached the final with ex-girlfriend Megan Barton-Hanson but they split six months later.
She accused the hunk of playing away with his Dancing on Ice pro partner Vanessa Bauer when he competed on the ITV series last January.
