EVERY year, Love Island is a rollercoaster ride for the lucky ones chosen to be in the show.
But only one pair of villas can take home £50,000, which only a select few couples know all too well.
Who won Love Island?
2021 – Liam Reardon & Millie Court
The pair were favorites in the final despite their relationship having been in a sorry state throughout series 7, although they did go strong by the final week and were announced as the winners of Love Island 2021.
Liam’s head was spinning at Casa Amor when the stunning Lilly Haynes entered the villa – however, after Millie’s countless pleas, Millie decided to stay true to her man.
Family status: Until now together.
2020 – Paige Turleyd Finn Tapp
The couple were announced as the 2020 winners after falling in love with the show.
The pair beat runners-up Luke Trotman and Siannis Fudge to win the show.
The couple stuck together throughout the show and never once turned their heads.
Family status: Until now together.
2019 – Greg O’Shea & Amber Gill
A professional rugby player and a beautician were the winners of the fifth series, deciding to share the £50,000 prize.
Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Haig came in second, followed by Ovi Soko and India Reynolds in third, and Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins in fourth.
Family status: Unfortunately, the couple broke up via text just five weeks after receiving the prize.
2018 – Jack Fincham & Dani Dyer
The couple won Love Island 2018 as well as the hearts of the public, but despite appearing to be the perfect couple, they ended their union in April 2019.
Family status: Jack revealed that he and Dani broke up just a few months after resuming their relationship.
2017 – Kem Çetinay and Amber Davis
Kem and Amber had many ups and downs at the villa, but they won the show.
After winning on Love Island, both earned a fortune.
Amber traveled to the West End to star in the musical 9 to 5, while Kem is the host of This Morning.
Family status: Kem and Amber broke up after just 132 days of dating after a string of fights, despite saying they might get married.
2016 – Nathan Massey and Kara De La Hoyd
The 2016 winners had a short seven-month break in 2017 but reunited weeks before Kara was due to give birth.
In December 2017, their first child, Freddie George, was born, and in 2020, their daughter, Delilah.
Family status: The couple is still married in 2022.
2015 – Jessica Hayes and Max Morley
Even though poor Jess was Max’s second choice on the show, they won but didn’t last as a couple.
Max continued to date Charlotte Crosby but ended their fling after she was caught on Snapchat making out with ex-boyfriend Gary Beadle on a drunken night.
He quickly bounced back and began dating then-Miss Great Britain 2016 Zara Holland.
He also had an on-and-off romance with 2018 runner-up Laura Anderson.
Family status: The first winners of the show’s restart split just six weeks after leaving the villa.
Who won Celebrity Love Island?
2005 – Jane Middlemiss and Fran Cosgrave
During the famous version of Love Island, Fran Cosgrave stayed away from much of the drama but kept the audience entertained with his carefree nature.
He won the show with Jane Middlemiss.
They didn’t stay together after the show as they were brought together by the public.
2006 – Bianca Gascoigne and Calum Best
The public once again voted for the two together.
But after several public appearances together after the show, the reality TV veterans didn’t stay together.
Calum and Bianca reunited when they both appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.
