Love Island & # 39; s Ovie Soko has told MailOnline that he & # 39; has been overwhelmed by love & # 39; he received from viewers.
The basketball player and the busty model India Reynolds, both 28, who finished third in Monday's final, cannot believe they have made it to India that they arrived at the villa only two weeks ago.
Ovie – who won the nation's heart with his quirky one-liners, edgy fashion sense and gentlemanly attitude – admitted he hasn't seen any images yet and & # 39; really doesn't understand & # 39; why he was such a hit.
Overwhelmed: Ovie Soko from Love Island has told MailOnline that he & # 39; has been overwhelmed by love & # 39; he and partner India Reynolds received from viewers
During the interview, when asked how he felt to become the conversation on the internet, the humble hunk said: “I don't really get it, I didn't see anything. We just close here, I am overwhelmed by love. & # 39;
Loved for his chilled character, he thought: “When I was in primary school, I had a lot of energy and I bounced against the walls, but I'm just a chilled person. I don't lead myself. & # 39;
The star mused: & # 39; We are in a huge villa in the sun in Spain, you don't have to worry much. & # 39;
Ovie also revealed where his & # 39; message! & # 39; catch phrase came from, after saying it in an American accent every time someone received a text.

He explained: & # 39; Message?! Oh wow! I used to watch a lot of comedy when I was younger, I watched Don & # 39; t Be A Menace and it came to my head when the phone rang. & # 39;
Ovie was praised for his beautiful friendship with winner Amber Gill, 21, and at one point, fans of the show insisted that the pair be crowned winners.
After discovering this, the stud reflected: & I mean me and Amber are really good friends, we have each other's backs and we will continue to do so. We would have stayed together until a very special person entered. & # 39;

Loved-up: India shared: & # 39; It was great that it was so, so good, I was lucky because I came in and met Ovie right away, it was a dream! & # 39;
India proved that it realizes that it is the envy of many: & # 39; It was great that it has been so, so good, I was lucky because I met Ovie right away, it was a dream! & # 39;
India, billed as a glamor model when entering the villa, insisted that she would no longer do boring shoots now that she has been in the ITV2 show.
The beauty said: & # 39; I was not a glamor model – I gave up five years ago. I will not go back, I thought it was great, but would definitely go back to commercial. & # 39;
The brunette was also criticized for being with Ovie because of his popularity and for winning the prize money, after joking at the villa, there are easier ways to earn £ 50,000.
She said: & # 39; It has been taken out of context, I worked hard at home to get my career, so going to Love Island was a risk. I was lucky, I had a fairly easy journey. People underestimate how difficult it can be, but that's all I meant. & # 39;
Looking ahead to their future as a couple, Ovie opened: & We just keep going, we've laid a good foundation and we've talked a lot about it.
& # 39; On the outside, everyone has telephones and everything moves a million times per hour. But we had time to get to know each other.
& # 39; We have met on a more intimate level. & # 39;
