After eight weeks of grafting, re-coupling and Davide shouting 'Liar!', the Love Island final aired tonight, with ITV2 crowning its 2022 winners.


While four couples were hoping to walk about with that £50,000 prize money, it was Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu who won the hearts of the public – and one another (aww)!

The runner-ups were Luca Bish and Gemma Owen, with Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope in third place, and Andrew Le Page and Tasha Ghouri in fourth place.

The final saw the four couples chatting to Laura Whitmore about their Love Island highlights.

After Paige Thorne and Adam Collard were chosen as the least compatible couple by the other islanders and the public, they were sent home during last night's Meet the Parents episode, losing out on a place in the final.

Tonight's episode saw the couples chat about their time in the villa while the show aired footage from the islanders' Summer Ball, with each contestant writing a speech about how much their partner means to them.

"Good that Tasha's next to me because I cannot move to save my life," Andrew said during the lesson while Luca told the beach hut that he had "a good laugh" during the rehearsal.

Ahead of the ceremony, the islanders were taught Latin dance before speeches were delivered, with tears of joy and emotion flowing aplenty.

Previous Love Island winners of the show include last year's Liam Reardon and Millie Court, Paige Turley and Finn Tapp in 2020, Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea in 2019, Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham in 2018, Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies in 2017, Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey in 2016, and Jess Hayes and Max Morley in 2015.

The only previous winning couples who remain together are Paige and Finn along with Cara and Nathan.

Let's hope Ekin-Su and Davide have what it takes to go the distance!
