After seven weeks, the UK’s favourite reality TV show Love Island has come to an end, with couple Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies being crowned winners.
As the title suggests, the ITV2 reality show sees contestants spend seven weeks in a luxury villa trying to find love. After numerous dumpings and re-couplings, the show ended with four couples making the final.
In fourth place was Blazin’ Squad’s very own Marcel and partner Gabby, with Chris and Olivia taking third place and Jamie and Camilla coming second.
Fans were rooting for Kem and Amber to win as they had consistently proven to be the most compatible and most genuine pairing. The result was finally decided by a public vote via the Love Island app and presenter Caroline Flack entered the villa to announce ‘Kember’ as the winners.
However, Caroline brought with her a shock twist as she offered the winners two envelopes – Kem’s containing £50,000 and Amber’s containing nothing. In the ultimate test of their love for one another, Kem opted to share the money with Amber.
Kem later Instagrammed a photo of the pair at the wrap party, adding that he is “so in love” with his fellow champion.
This year’s Love Island has been the most popular since the show’s revival in 2015. 2.43 million viewers tuned in to watch the final, the BBC reports, an increase of over a million since last year.
This series has also been popular with high-profile celebrities. British rapper Stormzy famously tweeted that Chris was “too good” for Olivia, causing tension in the villa.
Chris you're too good for her mate

Liam Gallagher also explained his obsession with Love Island in a recent Radio X interview. He said: “It’s good, mate. Love Island’s where it’s at.”
“You don’t know what you’re missing. It’s great. Young people, HAVING FUN. Without a care in the world.”
We couldn’t agree more, Liam. Roll on Love Island 2018. You can apply to be on the next series here.
What do you make of that then? Did Kem and Amber deserve to win? Let us know with a tweet @CelebMix.
