Series 9 of Love Island wrapped earlier this year - here are all of the winter 2023 couples who are still going strong and which ones have split.
Winter Love Island 2023 saw a number of whirlwind romances, and while some are here to stay, others have already gone their separate ways as the summer series has officially begun.
Many of this year’s islanders left the villa in full-blown relationships, while others made things exclusive.
But as we get to know a new batch of islanders, which winter 2023 couples are still together?
Maya Jama makes stunning entrance in second Love Island villa return
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!
Despite becoming the first official boyfriend and girlfriend of series 9, Lana and Ron have sadly parted ways just three months after making it to the finals.
They went from strength to strength when they left the villa and met each others’ families, but long-distance seemed to be too much of a strain on their relationship, with an insider telling this tabloid: "Unfortunately, they have decided to separate, which is a decision they have made amicably and of course, they still remain good friends."
“Commuting from Manchester to Essex and back again whenever they wanted to spend time together, as well as managing their work commitments just proved too difficult," they added.
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!
"There is a lot of love and respect there but it just wasn’t going anywhere. The distance between them was too much and they are both really focused on their careers post Love Island.”
However, after sparking rumours in May that they had rekindled their relationship, Tom appeared to confirm this during an appearance on Love Island's spin-off show Aftersun in July!
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.
However, after weeks of denying rumours that they had gone their separate ways, a rep for Olivia confirmed their split in early April.
They told Goss.ie: "Things weren’t the same between Olivia and Maxwell after they left the villa. Life has been hectic and they both decided it was best to end things.
“Olivia is happy to focus on herself right now and has a lot of exciting work projects coming up, including a role in the next Fast & Furious movie. It’s sad it didn’t work out but there’s no hard feelings between them.”
The former couple went on to delete all traces of each other from their Instagram feeds, while Olivia unfollowed Maxwell.
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.”
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."
