Winter Love Island 2023 is almost over, with this season’s winners to be revealed in just a few hours time.
Mere months ago, the nation rejoiced as fan favourites Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Saclimenti were crowned the season 8 champions.
But are the couple still together? And what about the other 2022 champions?
Let’s take a look at what they’ve all been up to since the show ended.
Which Love Island 2022 finalists are still together?
The last Love Island final was only in August, so there hasn’t been much time for the final couples to break up.

At the time of writing, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Saclimenti, Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope and Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page are still going strong.
However, season 8, second place winners, Gemma Owen and Luca Bish, called it quits in November 2022, just three months after leaving the villa.
At the time of their break up, Gemma said in an Instagram post: ‘I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship.
‘It wasn’t an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for both of us right now.
‘Many of you have been on this journey with us from the beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as a new chapter starts.’
Since leaving the villa, Gemma has signed a lucrative deal with fast-fashion brand Pretty Little Thing, and has been linked to rapper Bugzy Malone.
Luca on the other hand has kept a lower profile. He announced last year that he would be starting a YouTube channel called The Bish n Chips show (great pun) but we are yet to see any content emerge on the channel.
What have Ekin-Su and Davide been up to since leaving the villa?
Ekin-Su and Davide have been extremely busy since winning Love Island in August.
The pair had their own two part ITV series called Ekin-Su and Davide: Homecomings, where they visited each other’s hometowns in Turkey and Italy respectively.
Ekin also appeared on this year’s series of Dancing On Ice but was booted off in the third week after a tense skate off with EastEnders star Patsy Palmer.
And if that wasn’t exciting enough, the couple also sparked engagement rumours after Davide surprised Ekin with a Cartier promise ring.
However, putting the rumours to bed, Davide told the Daily Mail: ‘Even if we are so close, the reality is that we [have] known each other six months, so it would be nice to see at least a two-year relationship before you commit for life,’ he said.
‘This is what I always will delight with fans to understand, that even if everything is perfect, it seems a dream, you need to be realistic.’
What have Indiyah and Dami been up to since leaving the villa?
Dami Hope and Indiyah Polack are another couple that have reaped the benefits of being Love Island finalists.
Since leaving the villa, Indiyah has become the ambassador for the new Pretty Little Thing resale app, called Marketplace and is also a brand ambassador for Boots.
She also hosts the Love Island podcast, The Morning After, alongside Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson.
The couple both appear on the cover of the latest issue of PWR magazine.
Speaking to the publication about their relationship, Indiyah said: : ‘Me and Dami are a lot closer now since we’ve come out, it’s been easier as times goes along.
“Every day, you learn more about each other, and I’ve gotten to know how he is as a normal person. Like as opposed to in the villa, I didn’t know how he was in a normal settings and how he’d react to certain things, and as the days go by, you learn more of that.
‘Our love has grown, and we’ve learned to appreciate the different things about each other.’
What have Tasha and Andrew been doing since the Love Island final?
Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page came fourth in season 8 of Love Island and have since gone from strength to strength.
The couple moved in together very soon after leaving the show and have already gone ring shopping and spoken about engagement.
After leaving the show Tasha signed deals with eBay and L’Oréal and also worked with Ann Summers as part of their Valentine’s Day range.
Tasha also seems to have gotten over Andrew’s dalliance with Coco Lodge in Casa Amor, as she recently mocked him by making him a birthday cake which referenced his infamous ‘licked her t*t or whatever’ quote.
The Love Island 2023 final airs tonight at 9pm on ITV2
