Love Island’s Tasha swoons over Andrew as he changes cochlear implant batteries

Love Island star Tasha Ghouri has paid a heartwarming tribute to her boyfriend Andrew Le Page after she managed to capture the sweet moment he changed her cochlear implant batteries on camera.

The blonde bombshell, 23, was born deaf and famously became the ITV2 dating show’s first ever deaf contestant in 2022, where she opened up about her ‘superpower’ on the show.

Since leaving the villa earlier this month, Tasha’s relationship with Andrew has only gone from strength to strength, with the poignant connection between the pair recently seen in a clip shared online, where Andrew changed the batteries in Tasha’s cochlear implant while on a plane.

Under her watchful supervision, Andrew fitted the new battery in the device, before blessing it with a small kiss as he returned it to his girlfriend.

Sharing the clip online on her own Instagram stories, Tasha shared the short video with the words: “So glad I caught this on camera. Changing my batteries for me” Alongside two doe eyed emojis.

Fans at home were also loving the gesture and appreciated the kindness of the act.

"The little kiss at the end is such a genuine and impromptu moment, so sweet!!” Wrote one person.

While another added: “Tears in my eyes!”

A third then commented: “Oh my god” alongside a string of crying emojis.


Tasha was fitted with a cochlear implant at the age of five, with the device helping the Islander to process speech.

Unlike a hearing aid, which amplifies a sound, a cochlear implant works in a different way, explains the Royal National Institute for Deaf People.

They said: "Instead of making the sound louder, like a hearing aid, implants use electrical signals to directly stimulate the auditory nerve (the nerve that carries sound from the cochlea to the brain).

"The idea is to provide access to the range of sounds that make up speech. Results vary depending on the individual, and range from an awareness of environmental sounds to hearing speech.”

Speaking openly about being deaf prior to arriving in the Love Island villa, Tasha said: “I call it my superpower.

“I don’t call it a disability because it’s something I don’t like — it sounds negative. With boys, because I’m so confident about it, I think they find that attractive.

“I don’t shy away from it. It’s like, if you don’t accept it that’s your loss, but I’m a fun, wild girl.”
