The programme, hosted by Caroline Flack, sees young single people move into a Spanish villa for seven weeks, in an attempt to make a connection and find love.

It has been confirmed the show will make a return in 2018 with a fourth series. The channel says the show is its most popular and succesful format among the 16-34s.

The pair were up against Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt, who came second, Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood, who came third, and Gabby Allen and Marcel Somerville, who came fourth.

During the final programme, Cetinay read a poem to Davies saying: "When we talk about our lives and the things that we've been through, it's mad to meet a girl who's so caring and true. The relationship got rocky and we both started to fear, the problem was we were scared to show we care."

She responded and told him, "seven weeks ago I walked into the villa having no idea how much this experience was going to change my life. It's safe to say we've had one of the most challenging journeys".

In Sunday's episode, Kem made an attempt to impress Amber's parents, who visited them in the villa by speaking Welsh.

Following the announcement of the 2018 commission, Paul Mortimer, head of digital channels and acquisitions said they were 'thrilled to be back with a new series next year'.

At ITV2, we couldn't be more thrilled with how Love Island fever has gripped the nation. Now established as the perfect series to start the summer, we're delighted to be bringing the show back for our young adult audience in 2018.
