A summer of love, friendship and drama, what more could you want? British reality show Love Island brings a group of sexy singles from across the UK together with a singular mission: to find love. Those who don’t, are dumped from the island, and at the end one couple are crowned winners. They pocket a lofty $50 000 that they can share or steal from one another.
Love Island has seen immense success, leading to American and Australian versions of the show. While the UK series has had a few hot and heavy romances and engagements over the past six seasons, very few of the couples actually ended up walking down the aisle.
Here are the islanders who found enduring love and have tied the knot.
Olivia Buckland & Alex Bowen
Olivia had a tough time on the show’s second season, which was largely hailed the most raucous season that lead to producers imposing heavy rules on future contestants. She eventually found love with Alex, and together they came in second place in the show’s finale.
While they didn’t win the season, they did become the first Love Island couple to get married. They said ‘I do’ in September 2018, and hope to have children soon.
Cara De La Hoyde & Nathan Massey
Cara and Nathan established themselves as a strong couple from the beginning of the show, and stayed together throughout. They eventually won the second season in 2016. Since winning, the pair briefly split up before getting back together and having their first child, son Freddie-George.
They have since tied the knot in 2019 and recently welcomed their second child, a daughter named Delilah.

Jessica and Dom met on the show’s third season back in 2017, but the pair were separated a few weeks into filming when Jessica was voted off the island. Their love stayed strong, and they became official soon after Dom left the show half way through. They announced their engagement a few months later and tied the knot in October 2018.
In 2019 they welcomed their first child, whose name they have not publicly released.
While they haven’t tied the knot yet, these former Love Island contestants are still going strong.
Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury
Tommy and Molly were inseparable soon after meeting on the show’s fifth season in 2019. They came in second place, and are still as loved-up as ever. They live together and continue to give us major #couplegoals on Instagram.
Siânnise Fudge and Luke Trotman
Siânnise and Luke were fan-favourites from the get-go in the show’s sixth season in early 2020, which was also the first series to be shot in Cape Town as the ‘winter season’. They had so many sweet moments on the show and came in second place, although many wanted them to win.
It seems coming in second is good luck for contestants, as the pair now live together and have a joint Youtube channel where fans can keep up with their lives.
Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt
Humanitarian islander Camilla was a breath of fresh air in the show’s third season. The explosive ordnance disposal specialist was unlike any other contestant in Love Island‘s history, and found her perfect match in model Jamie Jewitt after a rough time struggling to connect with men in the villa.
The pair have been together since meeting on the show in 2017, and they are expecting the birth of their first child in October 2020.
Paige Turley & Finn Tapp
Love Island 2020 winners Paige and Finley are still going strong. The pair had an immediate attraction on the show, and became the first winners of the winter season.
They did the long distance thing between London and Scotland for a while, before moving in together in mid-2020.
