They may not have found love in the famous villa, but the former islanders have formed a strong bond outside.

And Love Island‘s Antigoni Buxton and Jacques O’Neill appeared in high spirits as they headed out for dinner in Manchester earlier this week. 

The pair beamed while making their way to Mexican & Japanese eatery Peter Street Kitchen, with the rugby player, 23, wrapping an arm around the 26-year-old singer.

Antigoni looked gorgeous in a white midi dress from Zara, with a thigh grazing slit and a ruched design.

She paired the number with strap detailed wrap-around heels, with a mini Louis Vuitton handbag over her shoulder.

The beauty had her signature blonde curls left falling freely, as she tossed them over to one side.

Leaning an arm on her pal’s shoulder, the beauty, who sported a glowing palette of makeup, beamed for some snaps.

While Jacques kept his look low-key with a pair of light grey, cuffed ankle trousers and a black hoodie.

He added a pair of chunky white trainers to the ensemble, as he shared a laugh with Antigoni.

It comes after the pair’s close friendship sparked dating rumours, with fellow former islander Charlie Radnedge stepping in to confirm they are just friends.

Attempting to put the rumours to bed via TikTok, Charlie explained: ‘Antigoni and Jacques are definitely not dating, they’re just good friends.

‘Everyone keeps on asking this at the moment. Similar to myself and Antigoni, we’re securely in the friend zone.’ 

Sportsman Jacques dramatically quit the villa earlier this month over fears he’d lose control after bombshell Adam Collard entered the villa – who has since coupled up with his ex-Paige Thorne. 

And eagle-eyed viewers noticed this week how Jaques deleted all traces of paramedic Paige from his Instagram page. 

Friends: Antigoni also denied dating rumours as she told The Sun: 'Me and Jacques are definitely not a thing. People can't believe that a boy and girl can just be friends'

Antigoni has also confirmed that the pair have not spoken since Paige’s departure from the villa.

Speaking at the show’s wrap party, she told The Sun: ‘I saw Paige last night, and they’ve not spoken, no.’

‘I am really happy for Paige though and I do want the best for her. She’s amazing and she was one of my really good friends in there so whatever makes her happy is good for me.’

And further confirming the friendship she has with Jacques, Antigoni added: ‘Me and Jacques are definitely not a thing. People can’t believe that a boy and girl can just be friends.’
