Alexandra Cane Is Reportedly Dating Former Islander Rykard Jenkins

Love Island's Alexandra Cane is reportedly dating fellow 2016 Islander Rykard Jenkins after 'being interested in each other for a while'.

The pair have been spending a lot of time together in the run up to Christmas, and were spotted kissing while on a night out in Manchester.

Alexandra and Rykard are said to have known each other for a long time, with a source claiming that they have reconnected since the model left the island in the summer.

While in Manchester, they apparently enjoyed a birthday dinner with friends together and 'couldn't keep their hands of each other'.

A source told The Sun: "Alexandra and Rykard have been quietly interested in each other for a long time.

"He went on Love Island and sacrificed his place on the series to be with Rachel Fenton so Alexandra was off-limits for a few years.

"But they've reconnected again since Alexandra was on the show too and there's no denying their chemistry together - they've been close friends for a while now.

"They enjoyed a birthday dinner at Masons Restaurant in Manchester with some other pals including Jamie O'Hara before Christmas and were seen kissing as they partied afterwards.

"The two of them couldn't keep their hands off each other all night and looked very much like a couple."

Before leaving the villa, Alexandra was dumped by Alex George and left the show single.

Rykard, 27, left the villa in 2016 with girlfriend Rachel Fenton by his side but he has been single since they split in 2017.

In December 2017, Rachel shared a Twitter statement confirming the end of their relationship.

She wrote: "Rykard and I are no longer together, we have decided to go our separate ways but I wish him all the best with his future."
