After eight weeks, Love Island 2022 has come to an end and two new islanders have officially joined the Love Island winners list... it's safe to say that the fans at home are pretty pleased with who came out on top! 

After a summer of flirting, shocking moments, make-ups, break-ups and plenty of recouplings, we were left with the final four couples on Monday night (August 1). 

Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page, Luca Bish and Gemma Owen, Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Dami Hope and Indiyah Polack had won the hearts of the viewers at home, and we got to see them enjoy their last couple of days in style with the Love Island Summer Ball.

After a quick salsa dancing lesson and a last-minute getaway for the girls, the islanders got dressed up in their finery for their final evening together. Heartfelt speeches were shared and a few tears were shed; in between, host Laura Whitmore guided us through some of the best bits of season 8 live from the villa. 

Who won Love Island 2022?

After the votes, Ekin-Su and Davide were revealed to be the winning couple, with Gemma and Luca coming in second, Dami and Indiyah landing third place, and Tasha and Andrew came in fourth.

Viewers at home were ecstatic with the result, which is no surprise given how much love Davide and Ekin-Su have had throughout the whole series.

One fan labeled the couple "the best winners of this show ever", and there were plenty more viewers who were full of praise for the happy couple!
