EXCLUSIVE: ‘We’ve only spent six days without each other’: Love Island’s Ron Hall says he ‘struggles to be apart’ from Lana Jenkins but reveals the couple won’t be moving in together
Ron Hall admitted that he ‘struggles to be apart’ from girlfriend Lana Jenkins but the couple won’t be moving in together just yet.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, the Love Island finalist, 25, who is based in Essex, discussed his future plans with Manchester-based Lana after he previously made it clear that he will not be moving up North.
He admitted that despite ‘only spending six days apart’ since leaving the South African villa, he aims to ‘buy his own place’ before they commit to living together.
Ron confessed: ‘I struggle to be apart from her. We’ve only spent six days a part since coming out.
‘Our end goal is to move in together but at the minute we want to be able to buy our own places and then eventually move in together.’

During the Love Island finale, viewers were left fearing for Ron and Lana as he commented on their future.
Ahead of being crowned runners-up, the financial adviser told presenter Maya Jama that he was looking forward to ‘missing’ his girlfriend when they return home.
Maintaining that they’re going to have their own bases in different parts of the country, Ron justified the decision to the dismay of some fans.
They wrote: ‘Ron makes it very clear he can’t wait to escape Lana. You want to miss her? What does that even mean? #loveisland.’
‘Ron does not love Lana man just said “I want to miss her, we will have our own bases” aka I want to go out and have fun! #loveisland.’
‘Ooh! I don’t like the fact Ron said I want to miss her for a bit. In other words, he’s looking for some time away from Lana #LoveIsland.’
Elsewhere, Ron added: ‘I haven’t watched the series back I haven’t had time and it’s just cringe the worst bit of the villa was movie night having to watch myself on the screen.’
Speaking about his life since leaving the villa, he added: ‘Luca Bish actually reached out to me after coming out and we played golf which was really fun and it was nice to spend time with someone who’s been through it too.’

‘I see Sanam and Kai a lot they are great. I’m going to the football at United with Kai soon!’
Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan were crowned winners of the winter Love Island 2023 last month – beating Ron and Lana to the £50k cash prize.
After eight weeks of drama, viewers picked the social worker and PE teacher, who fell for one another in Casa Amor, as their champions.
The couple, both 24, were speechless when host Maya announced the results during the live final in South Africa.
