Fans are thrilled with the news over on Twitter, flooding their feeds with messages of congratulations for Davide and Ekin.

This year's Love Island saw 36 contestants strut into the villa, including original islander Adam Collard who was coupled up with Paige Thorne until they were dumped on Sunday.

The series has had some iconic, loveable and meme-able characters, from the super strong-headed Danica Taylor who was coupled up with six boys, to Deji Adeniyi who was full of hilarious one-liners.

And let's not forget Jay Younger who followed his heart and risked armageddon when he told ex-partner Ekin he wanted to get to know Paige.

One of the series' final Islanders Nathalia Campos also defined bombshell with her arrival, making a bee-line for the guys she wanted to get to know without letting anything stop her.

That was, of course, until the infamous pancake-off with Ekin.

Love Island and all the romantic and hilarious antics that come with it will be back in the New Year, when the show returns for series 9, this time in South Africa.
