Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan have been crowned the 2023 winners of ITV's winter Love Island.

After weeks watching new relationships blossom in the South African villa, presenter Maya Jama revealed the new winners live on air.

Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins came in second place and in third place was Tom Clare and Samie Elishi.

Tanya Manhenga and Shaq Muhammad followed in fourth position.

Speaking to Jama ahead of the results, Sanam said: “For me it was always Kai. “I always said he was my number one and that, of course he is a very attractive guy, but apart from the looks, like I was just like… he’s an amazing guy, everything about him.” Kai said that Sanam had “blown me away straight away” since her entrance on the show as a bombshell.

“I think it was eyes,” he said, adding: “Now she doesn’t leave my side. I don’t leave her side and I absolutely love it.”

As well as the title of Love Island winners, the couple will share a £50,000 prize between themselves.

The final kicked off on Monday night with viewers tuning in to ITV2 and ITVX to watch the drama unfold.

Earlier in the episode the four remaining couples excitedly woke up to enjoy their last day in the Villa.

The couples began the day with a dance lesson by professional dancers, before the girls headed off to a spa day to toast their "friendships that will last a lifetime."

In the spa, the girls worked on their romantic declarations before getting dressed up for the final party.

Later that day, the couples reunited and sobbed their way through speeches as they confessed their love for one another in an emotional scene.

Love Island: The Reunion will air on ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm on Sunday.
