“I’m searching for a girl who is confident in herself, not cocky but she knows her worth. I want a girl who backs herself and someone who lives a positive lifestyle.”
What has Greg been up to in the Love Island villa?
Greg has very quickly established himself as a firm favourite in the villa after telling Amber that she “deserved to be spoiled” during their date together in the Hideaway.
“Obviously, you are my first choice,” he told her.
And it seems his Irish charms have worked.
“I’m telling you now, I haven’t liked one boy that has come in. That boy has got the luck of the Irish!” Amber told Anna and Maura.
Michael then admitted that he still liked Amber, and the former couple shared a smooch during a challenge. However, when it came to the recoupling, Amber opted to stick with the lovely Greg — leaving Michael to couple up with Francesca.
Greg and Amber have since shared their first kiss, and with Michael dumped from the villa, they’re free to crack on with no distractions.
And things have gone from strength to strength, with the pair quite literally setting sail for their epic final date on a catamaran.
While on the boat, the usually reserved Amber decided to make her feelings clear.
“When we first met, I had an instant connection and that is something that I never get. I felt it straight away and I was just hoping you felt the same,” she said. “I feel grateful that I stuck it out. Little did I know you were around the corner! This is the happiest I’ve been since I’ve been here. I wouldn’t want to be on this date with anyone else.”
And it looks as if Greg feels the same.
“I’m just so happy to be here with you. I feel really fortunate to have come in and met you,” he replied. “I’ve never had an instant connection with someone. It was so easy with you. I’m just delighted that I got to meet you.”
The couples were asked in their pairs to vote for the least compatible couples — and only Tommy and Molly-Mae, and Amber and Greg, received no votes, putting them through to the final.
Greg’s mum appears to be a big fan of her son’s love interest, gifting her a shamrock on visiting the villa. Amber’s dad joked about offering up the sandal from his right foot.
Despite having only been in the villa for 12 days, Greg was crowned the winner alongside Amber, beating Molly-Mae and Tommy to the £50k prize.
Greg received the envelope with £50,000 in it, which he then chose to split with Amber.
