The pair tied the knot in Gibraltar.

Love Island star Sam Bird has married his partner Kailah Casillas after they snuck away to Gibraltar.

Bird appeared on the fourth season of the dating show where he was coupled up with Samira, Ellie J and  Georgia before being dumped from the island on day 47.

Kailah herself is no stranger to reality TV after her stint on The Challenge.

Sam shared their happy news with a short montage video on Instagram.

In his caption, he wrote: “The new Mr & Mrs Bird. Tied the knot in Gibraltar and vlogged the whole trip.”

On her own Instagram page, Kailah shared a snap of them together and wrote: “We eloped! I never dreamt of having a big wedding, so we decided to take a trip to Gibraltar and do it the most intimate way possible, just us.”

She continued: “I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you, @samrobertbird.

“We vlogged the whole trip and it’s up on my YouTube channel if you want to see more of our amazing trip! Click the link in my bio to watch!”

She added: “Big shoutout to everyone who helped make our day so perfect! It was truly amazing.”

The video Kailah shared features their exchange of vows, during which Sam tells her: “I love your laugh, your smile, and your infectious loving personality.”

Quoting the film Sweet Home Alabama, Kailah told Sam: “And in the words of my favourite movie, ‘I’m so happy to marry you, so I can kiss you anytime I want.'”

The couple first got together in 2020, and Sam popped the question eight months into their relationship.

Sam and Kailah were met with plenty of messages of congratulations on their social media pages.

Love Island star Samira wrote: “Congratulations!! Xx”, while her fellow alum Laura Anderson said: “Yayyyy congratulations lovelies everything looks perfect just like both of you.”
