The first series about the Island of Love, which takes place outside of Spain, was broadcast in early 2020 – the first series in which Laura Whitmore is the main host of the show ITV2.

Paige Turley and Finley Tapp became the first couple to win their first ‘Winter Love Island’ in South Africa in February 2020 – sharing a £ 50,000 prize pool.

They added: “We have a new great group of friends and we literally can’t imagine life without each other.”

“I’ll always be grateful to Love Island for introducing me to Liam, we’ve had the summer of our lives and I can’t believe it’s been a year since we met in Mallorca,” Millie said on Thursday when it was revealed that Love Island would be broadcasting twice a year in the future.

Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey are one of the biggest success stories of the series – welcoming two children into the world together since winning the 2016 show.

“We both went to the show to smile and hope to find love, and that’s exactly what we did… we had fun, we fell in love, and here we are six years later married, two beautiful children, a dog and a wonderful house “, recalled the happy couple on Thursday.

“We are still very lucky to be in the hearts and minds of the public, and wherever we are in the world, someone always asks us how we are or they stop us for selfies. If we weren’t on the Island of Love we would never have met. “

Jess Shears and Dom Lever are another couple still in love after meeting at the infamous villa – who got married just a year after their first meeting thanks to the 2017 show.

“For me, Love Island changed everything in my life. I met my wife, the mother of my children, and moved around the country for a better life,” Dom said as Love Island’s new break doubled their impact.

“Not to mention that it changed the course of my career and now I spend everything with my family and work for myself.”
