How's your Islandese? A little rough around the edges? For all those in need of a lesson in Love Island lingo, we bring you the ultimate Islander phrasebook, filled with the many nouns, verbs and curious adjectives one might expect to hear during a stay on Love Island.
The words, perplexing. The origins, mind-boggling. The outcome, painstaking confusion. Coming to a school curriculum near you soon...
Origin: The Love Island villa
The act of switching partners in the pursuit of (a) true love, (b) £50,000, or (c) forming allegiances against fellow Islanders whose mere presence threatens your chances at either (a) or (b).
“Since the last recoupling, have you grown to like him at all?”
“No, I’m gonna pie him off and recouple with someone else.”
Origin: Old Norse
A word used by Islanders to punctuate sentences. Can be used in any context, with a fully interchangeable meaning. Where most humans breathe, an Islander might say ‘like’.
“Like, I still like him, but like, I like someone else. And now I’m like coupled with this other guy I think I, like, like."
So we all know Jess and Max are the winners of Love Island, but how d'ya fancy now delving a little deeper into the voting stats to see just how close the final really was?!
We've got our calculators out and geeky glasses on, to bring you the official voting stats for our final four couples:
Jess & Max - 42%
Hannah & Jon - 36%
Lauren & Josh - 12%
Cally & Luis - 10%
Quite close at the top - but at least Hannah and Jon can be safe in the knowledge they are still winners in their own way, because (let's face it) they've won each other on the show! Aaw. Soppy. But true.
Did your favourite couple win? Keep the convo going over at Twitter, @LoveIsland
Now you've had time to catch your breath after that spectacular win for Jess and Max, it's time to test just how big a Love Island fan you are.
A whopping twenty questions, ranging from the romantic to the ridiculous, all about the pie-filled series that's kept us so entertained for the past six weeks.
Reckon you're up to the challenge? Take it away...
Shortly after Caroline Flack had crowned Max and Jess the winners of Love Island 2015, we stormed straight into the villa to catch up with the islanders.
Here's how they will look back on their time on Love Island... MISS YOU ALREADY, GUYS!
Caroline Flack was right - it was a long, hot summer! Six weeks of pouts, pecs, passion, poison, and plenty of pies. And at the end of it, just two remained - your winning Love Island couple, Max and Jess!
They beat Hannah and Jonathan to be crowned winners of Love Island - but that wasn't the end of it! They had to prove their dedication to one another when each were asked to choose between Money and Love.
Thankfully, they both selected Love - as if there was ever any doubt! So not only do they return to Blighty with a potential future spouse, but a hefty cheque for £50,000! And to think, most of us return from holiday with sunburn and a straw donkey.
Congratulations Max and Jess!
Once upon a time, in a villa far far away...
Well, not FAR far. It doesn't count as long-haul. But still pretty far...
...there lived a little girl named Jessica. Hello, Jessica!
Well, boys and girls, isn't she just lovely?
(The boys seem to be agreeing slightly more vocally than the girls.)
