The Ex On The Beach Power Couples Who Are Still Going Strong
Thought Ex On The Beach was cursed? This lot prove otherwise as they're still together. Find out who's gone the distance over at MTV.co.uk
If you thought that being shoved into a villa with a load of strangers and a couple of your exs probably wasn’t the best situation for a relationship to thrive in, you’d be… errr, well you’d be right.
The track record for true love on Ex On The Beach isn’t exactly the best, but there are a handful of couples who’ve actually managed to survive the tablet of terror and are still going strong.
Alright, so there’s a grand total of three couples from five entire seasons who’ve survived the EOTB curse, but it’s about time we gave them a round of applause for proving that true love really does exist.
These are the Ex On The Beach power couples who are still going strong right now. And um, we wish the best of 'em all the luck in their future romantic endeavours. Awks.
Nicole Bass and Jacques Fraser
Against all odds (literally every single type of odds that you can possibly imagine), Nicole and Jacques Fraser are very much a thing again.
On season 5, Jacques arrived as Nicole's ex and was determined to win her back. She wasn't having any of it until they'd cleared up some cheating rumours, but when he insisted that he'd kept it in his pants, their relationship was back on. That was errr... until Frankie Spong arrived, who revealed that actually, they'd 'shagged in Beefa'. Well, shit.
Nicole was quick to call it off again, telling Jacques he "aint all that and a bag of chips" tbh, but once the cameras were off, #Jacole realised that true love can indeed conquer all.
In fact, she's recently said that she's hoping he puts a ring on it soon. HOORAY.
Zahida Allen and Sean Pratt
Even after weeks of what looked like a pretty drama-free relationship (well, by this lot's standards anyway), season 5 ended with Zahida and Sean pretty much hating each other's guts thanks to the arrival of his ex, Taylor.
But it turns out that these two are in it for the long haul, and got back together pretty much as soon as the show came to an end.
In true caring psycho style, Zahida's got their future all planned out and even tweeted recently to say they're looking at properties to move in together. And considering he was an absolute lad when he first entered the villa, Sean's pretty soppy on Instagram these days. CUTE.
Helen Briggs and Chet Johnson
And last but not least, probably the biggest success story of the lot has got to be Helen Briggs and Chet Johnson, who rekindled their romance way back in season 4 of Ex On The Beach, and are still going strong in 2017.
They were only exs in the first place because of their long distance situation, but these days they're closer than ever and basically the ultimate Instagram model couple. Rumour has it they're set to enter the Big Brother house in the summer, so you definitely haven't seen the last of their relationship. GOALS.
