Love Island winners Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti are back in the UK along with fellow finalists, Gemma Owen and Luca Bish, Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope, Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page.
After being spotted arriving at the airport in Palma, Majorca following their landslide victory and their surprise Instagram live, the love birds have officially landed in London to officially start their lives together on the outside.
Turkish actress Ekin-Sum, 27, confirmed their arrival on social media by posting a selfie with her bae Davide, also 27.
Italian business owner Davide shared the same pic on his profile with the caption: ‘Home sweet home’.
Ekin-Su and Davide previously teased their journey home in a cute video posted on her Instagram story.
Cradled in his arms, she told the camera: ‘England baby! We’re coming back to the UK.’
Although the couple have got a table reserved at PizzaExpress, they might not be sticking around for long as the Italian entrepreneur told Laura Whitmore that he’ll be bringing Ekin-Su to his native country of Italy soon to meet the rest of his family.
Andrew was the first of the finalists to upload a video from London, and enthusiastically announced: ‘We have just landed in London. We’re about to go and get our luggage, see our family, our friends, and hopefully…’
Before he could finish, his girlfriend Tasha said: ‘I’m so excited!’
Tasha, who made history as Love Island’s first-ever deaf contestant, is already planning to get a tattoo as a permanent reminder of her time on the show and meeting Andrew.
The pair are hoping to live together in a London flat as they make plans for the future.
‘Me being in real estate and my parents being in property, I’ll have to have a say, but we’ll do it together,’ Andrew said. ‘Ultimately if she’s happy I’m happy.’
Tasha added: ‘It needs to have a hot tub! One day, in the future, we want to build our own house. This is obviously looking years into the future.’
Millions of fans tuned in to watch this year’s Love Island final, with the broadcaster achieving an average of 2.9million viewers.
Ekin-Su and Davide won the series with nearly two-thirds of the public vote with 63.7% compared to Gemma and Luca landing 14.5%.
While the Love Island villa may be closed for business for now, ITV previously announced there will be two series of the show in 2023, a winter series in South Africa and a summer series in Majorca.
And don’t forget, it’s not quite time to wave goodbye to the class of 2022 just yet though as we still have one last Love Island staple to enjoy – the reunion.
Hosted by Laura Whitmore, the special reunion episode will likely feature all the Islanders from series eight.
