That’s it. After eight weeks, Love Island 2018 is over – and favourites Jack and Dani are the winners, to absolutely nobody’s surprise. Many former contestants have taken to social media to mark the final and celebrate the newly crowned lovebirds.
Recently ousted Dr Alex was among the first, hopping on Twitter to share his delight.
“Couldn’t be prouder of Jack and Dani – there isn’t a more deserving couple!” he wrote. “I’ve loved watching their journey in the villa and I’m honoured to call them my friends. Can’t wait to see you both!”

While “loyal” Georgia shared a video of herself and Sam celebrating the announcement as it came in live – and they were pretty happy about it. Sam had tweeted earlier in the night that they were unsurprisingly backing team Jani for the win.
Love Island finale day! who’s excited?? @georgia_steel and I have had an amazing Summer and would like to thank @LoveIsland@itv2#LoveIslandAftersun and all the many people involved with the show. We wish ALL the islanders the best but of course, we are team #jani for the win 💖
Earlier in the night, Eyal Booker had taken to Instagram to share a heartfelt post in support of his “big bro” Jack and “Mother Teresa” Dani.
Sending positive vibes & wishing all my fellow islanders the very best of luck for tonight’s episode,” he wrote. “They’re all winners. I built some incredible friendships with these guys over my time on the island and cant wait to see them all. Jack definitely became my big bro & I always confided in him. Dani was my big sis and Mother Teresa to us all.”
And Caroline Flack had a final message to the islanders and the fans, as she prepared to say goodbye for another year.
“That was insanely brilliant!” she tweeted. “We had so much fun! Thanks for all your messages… congrats to all islanders and a massive thank you to the team for being TOTALLY BRILLIANT over the past 8 weeks! I feel so lucky to do this job. I love it so much.”
