Many of this year’s islanders left the villa in full-blown relationships, while others made things exclusive.
But which winter 2023 couples are still together?
From Tanya Manhenga and Shaq Muhammad to Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins, here are all of the series 9 couples who are still going strong and which have broken up already…
The king and queen of the 2023 villa are indeed still together!
The pair have already said that they’re hoping to vacation in the Amalfi Coast and Santorini together to celebrate their Love Island win.
As for their cash prize, they sweetly revealed that they plan to invest in projects to help children, as Kai (a teacher) and Sanam (a social worker) bonded over their values in the villa.
We see big things for this couple!
The first official boyfriend and girlfriend of series 9, Lana and Ron are more than happily going strong.
They’ve already met each others’ families, and they’ve discussed setting up their new bases as they continue to date on the outside.
Despite a turbulent romance in the villa during Casa Amor season, where Tanya brought back Martin Akinola, she and Shaq have gone from strength to strength since.
During their time in the villa, they even mentioned a potential move - we’ll keep an eye out for any moving boxes!
Tom Clare and Samie Elishi seemed more in love than ever on the show, so things appear to continue down that path on the outside.
The couple are indeed going strong and have shared their excitement in the villa about continuing to date on the outside - they’ve also now officially become boyfriend and girlfriend, so things are definitely looking up for the lovebirds!
Fan-faves of this season, Will Young and Jessie Wynter warmed hearts everywhere after the British contestant took his Aussie girlfriend back to his farm as promised!
After landing back in the UK, their first pit-stop was at the Young farm and Will even dished that he’d be open to moving to Australia, whilst Jessie is more than happy to have a UK base too.
Olivia Hawkins brought back Maxwell Samuda from Casa Amor after previously being coupled up with Kai.
They have been going strong since and she even recently said they’re planning a trip away together.
The plot twist of the season saw Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown and Jordan Odofin - both bombshells at different times - have a lucky streak in love.
Despite Zara leaving the villa just before Jordan came in, fate brought them together as they met back on the outside and began dating.
However, just a week after the series ended, Zara and Jordan confirmed that they had called it quits, making them the second couple from this year's series to call time on their romance.
In joint statements posted on their Instagram Stories, they said they wanted to "acknowledge the increasing public support for us to be seen as an exclusive couple".
The rest of the statement read: “After a few dates since leaving the villa, we know that we definitely get along & enjoy each others company. It’s been 2 & a half weeks of getting to know each other, & for now it’s a fun friendship between us. We have a lot of respect for each other & that’s what matters.”
Casey O'Gorman and Rosie Seabrook seemed smitten with each other on the show as the former coupled up with the bombshell after previously being with Claudia Fogarty.
Things seemed to be going well with the pair after they headed home to the UK, however, just two weeks after leaving the show, Casey revealed they had called it quits - meaning they officially became the first series 9 couple to split.
Replying to a fan Q&A on his Instagram Stories about how his romance with Rosie is going, Casey replied: "Rosie and I have spoken… she's a great girl. Life outside the villa is just very different and we will remain friends moving forward."
