We’ve seen ‘originals’ couple up only to separate. We’ve seen bombshells tear rifts in day-long love affairs that feel like decade-long marriages. We’ve had highs and we’ve had lows. But as they say, all good things must come to an end.
As the finale draws nearer – you might find yourself asking – what could happen in the final episode, and what do the victorious couples win (beyond undying love)?
When is the Love Island final?
The Love Island final will air live from South Africa on ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm in an extended episode set to last over an hour and a half.
As always, the show will be available to watch online after airing, alongside the full series.
What do Love Island winners get?
Based on the public vote, one lucky couple will be crowned the winners of Winter Love Island and awarded a comfortable £50K to share.
While the show previously included a ‘share or steal’ segment to the final, this is likely not to feature this year after it was dropped in the 2022 summer series.
In addition to the money, finalist Islanders are often bombarded with press opportunities, brand partnerships and TV deals upon leaving the villa.
Who is left on Love Island?
The couples currently still in the villa are: Will Young and Jessie Wynter, Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan, Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins, Tayna Menhenga and Shaq Muhammad, Tom Clare and Samie Elishi.
Who has left Love Island?
Casey and Rosie recently departed the villa. Joining them on the dumped list are:
Olivia Hawkins, Maxwell Samuda, Claudia Fogarty, Keanan Brand, Martin Akinola, Jordan Odofin, Ellie Spence, Tanyel Revan, Spencer Wilks, Aaron Waters, Zara Lackenby-Brown, Anna-May Robey, Haris Namani, David Salako.
