Question Fiance Visa count towards 5 years for ILR?

My wife arrived in the UK in January 2017 on a fiance visa and we got her first spouse FLR (M) in June of that year. Its still another 3 years or so away, but we where just wondering whether the time she spent here on the Fiance visa counts towards her five years before she can apply for ILR.

Starting to get our documents together for for her second FLR (M) now so its back on my mind.

OK, Thanks.

I suppose it just means we will have to wait a little longer.
