ITV also disclosed that over a million votes were cast in the first round after Sunday night’s episode of Love Island, with an additional 880,808 cast during the second round of voting.
The overall result got something of a mixed result from Love Island fans on social media – as did ITV’s decision to bring back the final twist involving the winning couple presented with the option of taking the prize money for themselves, which was branded “pointless” by many viewers.
Host Laura Whitmore also confirmed that Love Island will return to our screens for its eighth season in 2022.
