Kem Cetinay has gone public with his new girlfriend — his first since he split from his Love Island co-star Amber Davies.
The 23 year old won the third series of the hit ITV2 dating show in 2017, but the pair split just months after their victory.
Former Dancing On Ice star Kem has now posted an image of himself with his gorgeous new girlfriend on Instagram as he reflected on his 2019.
Although Kem didn't name the stunning brunette in the photograph he shared with his 2.2million followers, she has been identified as student Lexi Hyzler.

A source said: "Kem took his time with dating after Love Island but now he couldn't be happier.
"Things couldn't be better for Kem at the moment. He's the digital presenter for Dancing On Ice and entertainment presenter on This Morning — and now he's finally found happiness in his love life.
"It was important for Kem not to rush into anything after Love Island, but things felt natural with Lexi.
"Kem is very close to his family and in particular his mum, who absolutely adores her," the insider continued to tell MailOnline.
The hunk posted the image of himself with Lexi amongst other photos of himself throughout the year.
He wrote: "2019 was such a big year I am forever grateful for all the experiences I had. Very thankful for the special people around me. Excited for 2020."

Kem exclusively opened up on his love life in an interview with OK! online last year, where he revealed Love Island had given him anxiety over dating.
He said: "Dating gives me anxiety. I couldn't be on any more dates on TV, it was hard enough on Love Island.
"Going on like two dates a day, I would struggle. I'd embarrass myself too much, it's hard enough dating normally."

"We've always said that from the beginning that we would struggle 10 times more if we didn't have good friends like each other and our mums around and dads and brothers who support us if we've having a bit of a bad day or week."
