For some, Love Island was the answer to finding true love. For others, it was just a holiday romance.
Whose relationships have survived after the show has wrapped up? Are any couples still going strong from back in 2017? Which, if any, dumped 2020 islanders are actually making it work IRL?
Find out below…
Love Island: 2020 Winter
They were the first couple to make their romance official in the villa, with Finn reading out some romantic messages from his phone.
And they later dropped the L-bomb during their love proposals at the show’s prom.
So it’s little wonder Paige and Finn breezed into the finals and were voted as the Love Island 2020 winter winners.
Back on home turf, and £50k richer, things seem to be going smoothly for the duo.
They recently moved into their very own flat together in Manchester.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Paige wrote alongside a mag photoshoot: “Sooo it’s official .. I moved to Manchester with R kid!!”
We guess we’ll be getting a housewarming invite soon then – congrats guys!
They might not have come first place on the show, but the duo certainly won themselves a fairy tale romance.
After fighting their way out of a love triangle – thanks to Wallace and Rebecca – they’ve been completely inseparable.
Their love proved to be mutual as they both remained single after Casa Amor, and despite a tiny wobble after Luke got a bit excited about Siannise getting “naked” in the hideaway, they managed to put it behind them.
From Luke asking her to be his girlfriend in the most romantic way, to the duo being the first couple to exchange those three, little words, it looks like Siannise and Luke could have something very serious.
Outside the villa they’ve only grown stronger.
Judging by their Instagram feeds, it looks like Siannise and Luke have been quarantining together. They recently did a very Calvin Klein-esque shoot at home, and showing that romance is definitely not dead, Luke threw her a really cute Princess Jasmine-themed party for her birthday in July.
When it came to finding love in the villa, both contestants were pretty unlucky in love.
Luke M got pied by Jess Gale and Natalia Zoppa, while Demi got dumped by Nas Majeed.
However, after being matched by their pals Siannise and Luke T, they finally found the love in each other.
But sadly things just didn’t work out between the pair after leaving the villa.
Despite living five hours away from each other, the pair were determined to work, however, they grew apart during the lockdown period.
“My energy wasn’t being reciprocated,” Demi later explained.
Luke is now in a relationship with series five star Lucie Donlan.
The pair confirmed their romance in a true 21st century style, sharing loved-up Instagram selfies.
Luke shared a smiley photo of himself sitting on a surf board while Lucie, who is a professional surfer, on his knee. He captioned the picture: “My partner in crime,” while Lucie commented: “Youuuu,” and added a few heart-eye emojis.
After weeks of struggling to find her perfect guy, in walked Ched Uzor who whisked Jess off her feet.
The finalists made their relationship “exclusive” on the show, however, despite a few dates outside the villa, things didn’t last with Ched and Jess.
A rep for Jess confirmed the news in a statement, which read: “After a whirlwind romance in the Love Island villa, unfortunately Jessica Gale and Ched Uzor have made the mutual decision to split.
“They have unfortunately felt the effects of lock down separation but will continue as friends,’ it continued. ‘They wish nothing but the best for each other and full success in each others careers.”
Mike had his fair share of love interests on the show, after almost finding a connection with four girls in the villa.
But Priscilla proved to be the one for him, with Mike dubbing her “wifey material” from the moment he met her at Casa Amor.
Despite his past, the couple stuck together, and Mike put a label on it as he asked her to be his girlfriend.
Back in London town, things seem to be going well for the couple, who have been attending events together and sharing loved up posts on Instagram.
Mike is also planning to move to London from Manchester to be closer to his Mrs.
The pair regularly share loved up pictures, dancing videos and also attended some Black Lives Matter Protests recently in London together.
If you ask us, things are looking pretty good for these two. Could Mikey boy be proving us all wrong?
They didn’t make it to the finals, after the other islanders chose to save Priscilla and Mike over them.
But, Callum and Molly didn’t let that stop them from cracking on outside the villa.
Following their exit, Callum told press including RadioTimes.com they’d probably be “official” soon, and Molly revealed that they were meeting each other’s families.
Fast-forward a couple of months, and things have only got better for the couple, with Callum even hinting he could get down on one knee – yes you read correctly!
Speaking in an interview, the 23-year-old ex-scaffolder said he could see himself marrying Molly after spending the lockdown period with her and her family.
When asked if he sees any potential wedding bells in the future he said: “Never say never, that’s all I’m saying! It’s not on the cards yet but who knows.”
He also admitted he’d like to start a family soon.
“Yeah I would definitely like kids in the future but like I said, we’ve only been together like five months, so it’s still a bit early for kids at the minute!” he said.
Sounds like we could be hearing some weddings bells, followed by the pitter patter of baby feet, for these two!
It looked like things could have been over for Sophie Piper and Connor Durman, after she didn’t leave with him when the islanders chose to save her and dumped him from the island.
However, the pair rekindled their relationship after Sophie was voted out.
Connor met Sophie’s sisters Rochelle Humes and Lily Piper, and Sophie accidentally revealed they were “exclusive.”
It seemed these two could be onto something good, however, according to sources, the lockdown curse struck again and they’ve now called it quits.
After a six-month romance, things are said to have “fizzled” out between them.
“Things just fizzled out. They never even went official,” an insider said.
“It just didn’t have a chance to get started because of lockdown and they both agreed it was better to just stay friends.”
Love Island: 2019
Tommy realised that Molly-Mae is the “only girl” for him… after a brief “560 degree” head turn thanks to Maura’s advances which left Molly-Mae fearing she’d lost the boxer to the ring girl. He eventually picked her at the recoupling and they shared their first kiss before going on a horse riding date. He left Molly-Mae in tears after revealing he had remained loyal during Casa Amor, before roping in BFF Curtis to help him ask her to be his girlfriend. They later dropped the L-bomb under the duvet, and went on to come in second place.
Despite trolling and rumours that Molly-Mae was not genuinely interested in Tommy (#MoneyMae was rather unfairly trending on Twitter on the night of the Love Island final), the pair have only gone from strength to strength after leaving the show.
They have moved in together, spoken about starting a family and back in February, fans speculated they’d got secretly engaged engaged during a family trip to Las Vegas.
The pair haven’t confirmed anything, but they’re still very much loved up.
They both threw each other huge lockdown birthday parties, with heaps of presents, balloons and adorable cakes.
And were pictured enjoying a lovely baecation in July.
Following weeks of rumours, it looks like Dancing on Ice star Maura Higgins has split with pro-dancer boyfriend Curtis Pritchard, following Maura’s public announcement in March 2020.
The fourth-place finalists danced their way into the final, but their path to love was far from smooth, after Curtis broke up with his half-girlfriend Amy and was later torn between Maura and new girl Francesca.
Well, as much as we would have loved for the pair to stay together, Maura and Curtis were soon on much more shaky ground after it was reported by The Sun that Curtis was caught in an embrace whilst out in High Wycombe at New Year.
But Curtis denied any wrong-doing on Lorraine, explaining: “New year photos is nonsense – you can’t hug somebody or talk to somebody in this day and age without something coming out. Me and Maura are completely fine. I was there watching her on Dancing on Ice yesterday.”
Rumours circled the couple again, as fans speculated how close Maura would get to her professional partner, Alexander Demetriou, on the skating show. However, Maura, 29, was quick to shut it down and insisted they weren’t worried about the infamous curse.
But there was yet more trouble in paradise for the couple, after Maura is said to have left the National Television Awards without her man.
According to sources, the Dancing on Ice star stormed out of the event in tears following a boozy row with Curtis.
Love Island’s Lucie and Joe (ITV)
The surfer girl looked to have finally found her bev as she and sandwich man Joe were spotted holding hands while strolling to a dinner date in Lucie’s hometown in Cornwall, weeks after reuniting on Aftersun and telling Caroline Flack: “We’re just chilling as friends. We’re taking it slow, there’s no rush.”
Speaking at the TV Choice Awards in September, Lucie said they kept their relationship a secret to get to know one another away from the spotlight.
However, the pair have since confirmed their split – with Joe getting close to another former Islander.
Lucie is now loved up with series six star Luke Mabbott.
Love is dead, as 2019 winners Amber and Greg have split – reportedly by text, of all mediums – after a matter of weeks.
After tabloid reports, Amber set the record straight on Loose Women, telling viewers the deed really was done over text.
“The careers and the distance was always a factor,” she said. “We always knew about it so I don’t know what’s changed. I wanted to make it work. I am disappointed that it’s over […] but I’ll be fine. Onwards and upwards from here.”
She continued: “From my point of view I still wanted to make it work and there was a call a few days prior just chatting but on that day it was a text. I think there was a bit of miscommunication.”
India arrived as one of the last bombshells later on in the series, transforming Ovie’s luck. He’d previously emerged from Casa Amor with Anna — only for her to return to Jordan.
The pair confirmed they were “exclusive” on Love Island: The Reunion, and said they were ‘official’ at the TV Choice Awards.
But after being dogged with false “split rumours” after it was claimed by an Instagram account that India had “cheated” on Ovie while in Portugal — a claim strongly refuted by the couple — India announced their split at the Pride of Britain awards in October, saying it was “difficult”.
It seemed to be going so well for Anton and Belle, despite the pair going through quite a tumultuous time while in the villa. They had their first date in Belle’s brother’s restaurant, with Belle’s actor-father, Tamer Hassan, also joining them.
However, it has since been reported that the pair have gone their separate ways, one month after leaving the villa – with Anton’s love for Craig David bizarrely an alleged contributing factor for the rumoured split.
Anton since told Scottish Sun Online: “We’re not together, it’s as simple as that. That’s it.”
Danny and Jourdan had seemed like one of the more solid couples, after they confirmed in September that they had now moved in together.
But a source told The Sun in October: “Jourdan started to hear rumours he was speaking to other girls behind her back.” Jourdan later confirmed the split on Instagram, saying that she cannot tolerate a “lack of respect, disloyalty [and] dishonesty” in a relationship and told fans “the love was as real as the hurt is now”.
Love Island’s Anna and Jordan (ITV)
This duo came close to leaving the island after they found themselves in the bottom three, hours after Jordan asked Anna to be his “chick”. The model told the boys he was planning to take Anna on a tour of the villa to relive their biggest moments from where they had their first kiss, to up on the terrace, where Anna realised she had made a mistake in coupling up with Ovie. They said they were looking forward to life on the outside… but a day after going official Jordan said his head had been turned by India. Anna accused him of game playing and using her to reach the final. Predictably they called it quits on leaving the villa.
Love Island’s Chris and Harley (ITV)
Chris and Harley came together by default after India chose Ovie, despite Chris admitting his feelings for her, which left Harley to pick Chris. Despite the not-so-romantic start, the pair eventually shared their first kiss and saw romance rise on a bread-baking date. But, Chris found himself close to being dumped after he guessed that fans were convinced he should be together with India during the Headline Challenge. After a telling off from Harley and a big dose of grovelling the pair made up – only to be dumped from the villa. They became official during an appearance on Aftersun, which saw host Caroline Flack ask if they are “exclusive.”
But after just three weeks out of the villa, the pair decided they were better of as friends. Chris announced the news on Instagram, saying the split was “amicable” and that they were simply “too busy” to make “quality time” for one another.
“I will be very proud of everything she has done and everything she’ll do,” he wrote. “The future is bright crumpet go get em!”
