‘I’ll be like watch this video to understand more about my cochlear implant and he really does his research and really gets involved and it’s so nice because its something that’s such a big part of me.’

Last week, Andrew surprised Tasha, by getting a personalised tattoo in tribute to her.

The reality star got an inking of a hand signing ‘I love you’ in British Sign Language, and holding Tasha’s cochlear implant.

Tasha revealed she cried when she saw it and said it proved the depth of their love for each other.

She said: ‘So he told me he was getting a tattoo and I was like what are you getting and he said, “I’m not telling you!”

‘But he came home and surprised me with it and I didn’t expect it. I started crying, because no one has ever done that for me before and it just goes to show how much we love each other and how much of an amazing human being he is. He really is an amazing human.’ 

She also discussed the possibility of following in Love Island winners Ekin-Su and Davide’s footsteps and doing a TV show together, saying: ‘We’d love to have our own TV show, if that opportunity did come up!’

The couple have been going from strength to strength since leaving the villa, and even moved into a flat together last month in London, which Tasha said has made them even ‘stronger and closer’.

She explained: ‘Living together has been so good so far, we’re both so invested in making the flat our home. 

‘And it’s so nice to be able to come home and have a little hug and watch movies together and cook together. We both have a few bad habits, but every relationship does.

‘We’re so busy it’s nice to come home together at the end of the day. It makes our time so much more special. It’s nice to have that time separate and then come back together and it makes us stronger and closer.’

Tasha dismissed fans who think the couple have moved in too soon, saying that the timing ‘felt right’.

She said: ‘I don’t waste my time trying to prove people wrong, because they don’t know our relationship privately. All that matters is me and Andrew. 

‘I think you won’t get it unless you’ve been in the villa. You know, you’re in the same bed and you have no phones, you get so close and you connect on a level emotionally. 

‘I think coming out me and Andrew said we’re going to stay true to ourselves and go with how we feel, that’s all that matters, no one else’s opinions. It felt right.’

Coming off such a big show, Tasha said their relationship hadn’t changed, but that being away from the cameras had given them more ‘freedom’.

She said: ‘It takes off the pressure as you don’t have it in your head you’re always being filmed. It’s intense as well, so it’s taken off that intensity and we can now relax and chat about anything we want to chat about. So it’s nice to have that freedom.’ 

Talking about dealing with her newfound fame, she added: ‘Because we came out to so much love and support it’s been so lovely. But sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming because it’s a whole new world in a way, and you don’t know what to expect when you come out, you don’t have your phones or anything. 

‘For me and Andrew we’ve been supporting each other and everyone has been so supportive and that’s why every day I’ve been enjoying it. It’s been a whirlwind but the best way possible.’

The campaign shines a light on how the £30m raised a week by National Lottery players goes towards good causes across the UK. 

Speaking about joining the campaign, Tasha said: ‘For me personally I’m very passionate about a campaign like this. It’s all about shining a light on SignKid. He’s all about trying to build a bridge between the deaf world and the hearing world and make arts more accessible. 

‘The whole point is for people to stop and look at it and see a little bit of BSL goes a long away. And that’s why for me, I was like I’d love to be part of this campaign, because it’s so important to use my voice for things that matter.’

Tasha has become a role model for others by proudly showing off her cochlear implant, and is determined to normalise disabilities.

She said: ‘I get very nervous because I feel like I don’t want to let people down. I want to make sure my voice is heard, I want to make sure that I speak for my people.

‘I think it’s more nerves than anything, but I love doing it because I’m so passionate about it. There’s a fire in my belly, and I was born to do this kind of thing.’ 

Tasha said she hopes that she has paved the way for Love Island to have more Islanders with disabilities moving forward.

She said: ”I really hope that Love Island continues this momentum because I think it’s so important to have that TV representation of people with superpowers. Because anyone can find love, that’s the whole point. 

‘I really hope they continue this momentum, because it made such a massive impact. Like girls with cochlear implants look up and think I can find love, Tasha’s on TV. That’s so amazing because that’s how it should be, it should be normal.’

Tasha says she ignores negative comments, and chooses to focus on the ‘love’, saying that the negativity only pushes her harder.

She explained: ‘I’m being real I actually don’t see negative comments. I don’t go looking for it, I focus on the good, positivity and the love around me. 

‘If anything the negativity gives me more motivation, gives me more fire. I kind of thank them in a way because it’s like you’re only pushing me to work harder.’ 

However, she’s very selective about the projects she works on, and says she’s not motivated by money.

Tasha said: ‘With me, I’ll pick things that makes sense and that I’m passionate about. I’m not picking things that have the most money, or just the best deal. I want to go with something that makes me happy. 

‘So far the opportunities I’ve been getting have felt organic to me. I’m just having fun with it right now.’
