Love Island fans have always been obsessed with the pure relationship between Amber Gill and Ovie Soko, but last night's final was the cherry on top of a glorious cake.

Ovie was essentially a proud dad when Amber and Irish charmer Greg O'Shea were crowned the winners of the 2019 show.

Referring to her as his 'little sister', it was the pinnacle of their beautiful, healthy and supportive friendship. The basketball player looked more than chuffed to see her become Queen of the villa.

The pair beat off stiff competition in the form of Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, but the public were bowled over by how respectful Greg was towards Amber after she went through hell with Michael Griffiths.

Well, now Amber has £25,000 and a Greg on her arm, so f*ck you Michael. Many viewers were questioning Maura Higgins' face when the couple were named as first place winners, but Ovie was cheering from the sidelines.

"Did anyone catch how happy Ovie looked when Amber and Greg won?" one person wrote on Twitter, while another added, "OVIE LOOKS SO HAPPY FOR AMBER HONESTLY THAT MAN IS AN ANGEL".

A third commented, "Ovie’s reaction to Amber and Greg winning is everything," and another added, "Ovie is like that proud dad blessing Amber and Greg’s relationship." 

The man is a classy gentleman, and seeing such an amazing vibe between the pair proves that the show isn't just about finding a romantic partner.

When he was asked his favourite moment of the series, he included the fact that he met a "fiery girl" in Casa Amor who became his little sister. At that point, the audience were almost certainly crying…

His exact, glorious words were;

"I came into this Love Island villa looking for the opportunity to find someone special. I arrived four weeks ago in Casa Amor, I met a fiery girl that backed me from day one, and grew on me as a little sister."

Amber gets Ovie as her new BFF/Big Brother/Guardian Angel as well as £25K and a Greg? Life is sweet for those who wait for what they deserve to come to them.

The man is full of joy, and we'll miss seeing him every night on our screens more than we can ever say.

Ex Islanders Yewande Biala, Anna Vakili, Anton Danyluk, Belle Hassan as well as Chris Taylor, Harley Brash, Jordan Hames and Joe Garratt all cheered Amber on from a viewing party of their own.

Yewande in particular was delighted for her villa bestie, and Anna praised Amber for being the "most real" girl in the villa.

What a series, but three cheers for King Greg. The Limerick man went on a 12 day holiday, treated a girl with respect and came out of it with £25,000 and a new career. Praise Jesus for Greg.

It's finally time for Love Island, the nation's latest addiction, to come to an end tonight.

Four couples are in the running to be announced as this year's winner; Tommy Fury and Molly Mae Hague, Greg O'Shea and Amber Gill, Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins and India Reynolds and Ovie Soko.

Tommy and Molly Mae are the favourites, seeing as they're the only official item in the villa and the producers seem to have chosen them for the crown long ago, but fans are calling for Greg and Amber to win the £50,000 cash prize instead.

Viewers are convinced that Molly is playing a game and 'sabotaging' other couples, as well as possibly faking her feelings for Tommy.

Several audience members are creating a plan to ensure the vote goes the way of charming Irishman Greg and the only remaining original cast member; Amber.

Instead of dividing the vote by choosing Ovie Soko, one of the favourite and most hilarious contestants, Twitter users are telling fans to vote tactically by only choosing Greg and Amber.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said:

"I will say this again. Do not divide the vote. Amber and Greg have more chance of winning. People only really like Ovie, but Amber and Greg as individuals are well liked. Vote for them, don't split the vote and let Tommy and Molly win."

Another added: "Right I know we love Ovie loads but we can't let the Ovie & India votes and the Greg & Amber votes split so that Tommy and Molly end up winning so we need to sacrifice our love of Ovie for the greater good."

Another #Gramber fan said: "While one part of me wants Ovie and India in the final because it’s Ovie the other part of me is worried because he and Amber have a mostly common fan base which will divide votes in the finals leading to Molly Mae and Tommy wining."

Anton and Belle were sadly dumped from the villa last night, and viewers were emotional as he whispered to Amber to "go and f*cking win it" as the last OG in the villa.

Amber's been on a whirlwind journey in the villa, after demon Michael cruelly dumped her for Joanna Chimonides and then tried to get her back, in vain.

Greg has been nothing but lovely to her, just as she deserves, and the pair have won the hearts of the nation. We love a gal who knows her damn WORTH:

"Anton would have wanted Amber and Greg to win, lets not let his sacrifice be made in vain. Even if you think Ovie is attractive, vote Amber and Greg we can't let Molly win."

Scottish Twitter had better come thru for Gramber, but with Twitter looking this one sided towards the pair, how can they not snatch the prize?

Rumours of the show being fixed to suit Tommy and Molly Mae have been rife, so we'll have to wait and see what happens tonight.

Love Island is setting quite the romantic scene tonight, as Maura and Curtis, Ovie and India and Greg and Amber all head on their final one-on-one dates before Monday's final.

Maura and Curtis head on their second date, after that weird orange picking incident earlier in the week.

Maura receives the text which tells the couple to head out of the villa, and Curtis is so above himself that he leaps into the pool. He says in the Beach Hut; "I’m just so excited, Maura makes me smile."

"She makes me happy and she makes me laugh. I could just look at her all day because she is absolutely beautiful."

Maura smiles as she says that "the last one went really well, so I’m sure this one will be even better!". Curtis asks Maura if she thinks her parents will like him, and she confirms the Mammy's love.

"Yes! Mammy would absolutely love you. I would be nervous to meet your parents." Curtis then reassures Maura that his "parents will love you." We bet.

"I know I don’t tell you a lot of the time that I like you, but I really do," Maura emphasises to the dancer. "You’re funny and I love your smile. When you smile, I smile."

"I’m a very lucky man,’ Curtis replies, before grabbing Maura for a dance before their date ends. Hmmm, didn't he have a similar date with Amy

Image: ITV/REX

Next up, it's #Gramber. The charming Irish lad and the fierce Amber. We heart them. Greg receives a text saying himself and the Newcastle beauty will be getting alone time at last, on a boat.

"I remember walking through the door on the first day and not liking anyone," Amber says in the Beach Hut ahead of their date. "And now I’m on my final date with Greg, who I actually really like."

"Me and Amber have really connected," Greg reveals in the Beach Hut. "We have each other’s backs and we’re really getting on. It feels really special to be here and to have met her." AWWWW.

Amber finally expresses to Greg how she really feels; "When we first met, I had an instant connection and that is something that I never get,’ she tells the Limerick rugby player.

He replies with the same emotion; I’ve never had an instant connection with someone," he tells her. "It was so easy with you. I’m just delighted that I got to meet you."

"I felt it straight away and I was just hoping you felt the same. I wouldn’t want to be on this date with anyone else," Amber says. "Look at you getting all soppy," Greg laughs.

"Doesn’t happen often so take it while you can,’ a bashful Amber jokes.

Finally it's Ovie and India's shot at a romantic outing. Ovie can't hide his happiness in the Beach Hut; "I’m excited about going on this date with India. I’ve been waiting a while for this. It has come at the ideal time.

Image: ITV/REX

It's India's first time outside of the villa since her arrival; "I'm so excited," she says. "It’s pretty hot outside and he’s hot, so I don’t know how much hotter it’s going to get!"

The couple walk down a candelit path to their date. "I would say this is a hell of a start to something," Ovie tells India before she opens up to him.

"I’m so glad you’ve been in the villa the whole time," she says. "It’s been an amazing experience but it wouldn’t have been half as good if you hadn’t have been there.

"I came in to meet someone but I didn’t expect to meet someone and get on with them and like them as much as I like you,’ India tells a delighted Ovie.

Image: ITV/REX

"You know I don’t know how to take compliments," he jeers. Ovie also tells India that he wasn't expecting to find love, and was fine with simply being ‘Amber’s guardian angel’.

"When I walked into that date, you stood out to me so clear," he tells her. "It really changed the whole experience for me. It’s brightened up my days."

India gushes over his respect for her security, saying; "Do you know what my favourite thing about you is? You’re always checking that I’m ok and you’ll just give me a little wink or a nod."

Damn, we love Ovie. Can he be a boyfriend to every woman in the world? Or guardian angel? Anything? Check out the preview below;

Remember when Michael and Yewande were coupled up when Love Island first began, albeit reluctantly? And they became pally and supportive of one another? Before the devil took Michael's soul?

Well, the former duo live streamed their hilarious reactions to the drama between Jordan and Anna, which absolutely exploded in the villa over the last two nights.

Love Island viewers were left in total shock as Jordan decided to pull India for a chat to confess his feelings for her, without telling Anna first. The same Anna who happens to be his girlfriend…

The cheeky model was exposed when Curtis told his plan to Maura, who went straight to Anna to warn her of what was going on behind her back.

Curtis didn't come out of the whole debacle looking squeaky clean, seeing as he had advised Jordan to pull India aside first instead of talking to Anna.

Probably because he knew India would turn Jordan down and then he'd 'settle' for Anna, crawling back to his poor girlfriend. He tried to gaslight Anna completely, who was having none of it.

Everyone was shooketh by Jordan's dramatic character change, which also occurred with Danny Williams and villa villain Michael Griffiths. The spirit of the fuckboy lives on, it seems.

The girls charged in behind Anna, with Jordan stuck (rightfully) on his own… except for Curtis Pritchard. Both Jordan and Anna as well as Harley and Chris were dumped from the island last night.

Michael Griffiths and Yewande Biala were live-streaming their responses to the drama unfolding, and it was entertaining as f*ck:

Both former Islanders were left in complete disbelief at Jordan's appalling behaviour, with Michael saying; "Everyone thought I f**ked up but… oooh." We still think you f**ked up, Michael. For the record.

Yewande took a sly dig at the Liverpudlian firefighter, for treating Amber in a terrible manner, explaining that boys simply can't keep it in their trousers when new women enter the villa.

They claim to be happy with their partner, but then constantly seek an upgrade and assume they can do better;

Protect Yewande at all costs, as the fans say. After Anna was voted out, she said she'd experienced "lots of ups-and-downs". 

"Obviously, the Jordan thing was one of my lowest moments," she continued. On the subject of her feelings about Jordan, she said:

"I'm so disappointed in him and I'm hurt by him. I'm shocked. I don't have anger towards him, if anything I feel sorry for him."

The Love Island villa is set to explode tonight when Jordan Hames brazenly cracks on with India Reynolds, despite making Anna Vakili his girlfriend only days ago.

And just like that, a new villa villain was born. Michael must have transported his gaslighting spirit straight into Jordan as he walked out the door, and the devil's work continues. Fuckboys have power.

Anna Vakili is concerned that her boyfriend hasn't been spending any time with her, and her instincts end up being totally true.

What does Jordan do? Blame her for the fun not being in their relationship anymore. Note, blaming the other person is an EXACT sign of *gaslighting*. 

Jordan wastes zero time in telling India about his newfound attraction to her, and pulls her for a private talk before Anna realises what's being going on and confronts him.

Curtis Pritchard immediately told Maura Higgins about Jordan's confession to him about India, and Maura warns Anna that cheating is about to commence. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jordan Hames (@jxrdanhames) on

The drama begins the night when Jordan tells Curtis about his doubts;

"At the time I asked her to be my girlfriend, it felt normal and natural and it was the right thing to do. But I feel like I may have rushed into it." Since they've been in the bottom three, he's probably looking to escape.

"I feel like over the past couple of days I’ve had a few good conversations with India. I actually get on with her really well. I’m finding myself looking forward to bumping into her in the villa and having a conversation with her."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by India Reynolds (@lovefromreyn) on

Despite saying that himself and Anna are having no problems, he then claims she can be "hot-headed". Curtis suggests that India could be the catalyst to Jordan realising Anna isn't the perfect girl.

Jordan admits: “Since India has come into the villa, we get on really well. Obviously, she’s a good-looking girl. It’s definitely something I’m going to process in my head and decide what to do in due course.”

Jordan reflects on his decision, overnight before telling Curtis: "I think I’ve confirmed the location of my head…India."

He takes India for a chat on the sun deck, but Anna interrupts them to call him out on his bullsh*t.

Curtis says to Maura: “I’ve been speaking with Jordan. Basically, he is a little bit confused. He has feelings for India.” Maura cries: “Sorry, what? Is he going to do that before talking to Anna? I don’t believe this.”

Maura heads over to Anna and reveals: “He’s cracking on with India. He likes India. Curtis told me. He’s pulled her for a chat right now.”

Oh, did we mention that Jordan calls his girlfriend 'embarassing' for airing her fears about their lack of time together? We hope she drags Jordan by the ear and throws him in the pool…Nasty piece of sh*t.

We're thoroughly enjoying this series of Love Island, but now it's time for some seriously mathematical analysis. Namely, about the ridiculous amounts of cash they're set to earn when they emerge from the villa.

We all know that the ITV2 reality show has produced a well of influencers who sell sponsored content for an array of brands, but how much exactly would they earn per Instagram post? What if they don't even have Instagram? 

Apparently, influencers with 30,000-500,000 followers can pocket over 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by(@danidyerxx) on

Influencers with 30,000 – 50,000 followers can anything up to €450 per post on Instagram according to a new study from digital marketing experts, while those with over 500,000 followers could be pocketing around €1,855.96.

Yeesh, that's serious dough. New data from Rise at Seven states that social media influencers are paid on average €0.0037 for every follower they have per post.

Considering the huge amount of sponsorship deals the Islanders attract once they're on the outside and how many followers they have (between 150,000 and three million currently), that's a huge amount of money.

Let's break it down by Islander to get some answers:

Amber Gill looks on her way to be shoved back into villa villain Michael's arms tonight, by none other than the King: Ovie Soko.

Well, we're about to snatch that crown right off his head for encouraging her to back to a toxic ex who is CLEARLY manipulating her to stay on the show for as long as he can. 

In a shocking first look at tonight's Love Island, Ovie sits Amber down for a 'chinwag' (lol Curtis) about the upcoming recoupling.

We all know that Gorgeous Greg from Limerick is the correct choice, and in a world of Michael's: Always pick Greg. Trust us.

We have to remember, however, that Amber is only 21-years-old, and is most likely going to return to the bad boy that broke her heart before she learns some valuable lessons.

The girls must decide tonight who they want to recouple with, and Amber has a decision to make. Manipulative Michael, or Gorgeous Greg? My Lord, it's so difficult to choose. So difficult. *Sighs*

Audiences are positive that the firefighter is choosing Amber so he can remain in the villa after refusing to leave with Joanna, for no reason at all. Hello, he wants the £50k.

Charming Irish rugby player and solicitor Greg O'Shea was sent in to put a smile back on Amber's face after Michael stomped all over her heart by dumping her for Joanna, and the pair get on super well.

Fans are devastated to see that Ovie is Team Michael, seeing as Ovie is one of Amber's closest friends and confidantes. 

He tells her: "Greg's come in and he's been absolutely wonderful but ok, if you pick Greg you're playing it safe. Going back with Michael, you heart could get shattered again but you like him more than Greg. That's the reality."

Amber comes face to face with Michael and Greg in tonight's recoupling, with the two boys as the final pair standing. Does this mean that whoever she doesn't choose will be dumped from the villa?

Well, there are an even number of girls and boys in the villa, so probably not. When news of the recoupling broke in the villa, Greg, grinned at her and told her: "You have a decision to make here."

Smiling back, Amber had a twinkle in her eye as she proclaimed: "F*ck." We hope that translates to: "F*ck, I can't wait to leave Michael standing there on his own like a total mug, same as he did to me."

Ovie Soko has irrevocably changed our lives, that's a fact. The six foot seven basketball player has taken over the internet after bursting onto Love Island screens in the Casa Amor portion of the show.

He's basically the best thing to happen to the villa, and it appears that In The Style agree. The brand have dropped a range of t-shirts dedicated to the hilarious 28-year-old Islander.

While he's busy treating women with respect and giving long, deep, wise snippets of advice to the useless men in the house, he's also the king of fashion and emits chill vibes only.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Ovie Soko (@oviesoko) on

The man has already been crowned the couture king of the villa, donning dapper menswear, tiny sunglasses, do-rags, tank tops and patterned shirts like it's nobody's business.

He's quite simply a breath of fresh air. Ovie is a fan of a good 1990s film throwback ("MESSAGE"), wears bucket hats in bed and wears fully-clothed lewks rather than swimwear all day.

His Hawaiian print co-ords, camp collar shirts, camouflage cargo pants and the legendary outback hat has won the hearts of the nation.

Ovie was the only one to school Michael on how badly he spoke to Amber, as well as crying on national TV when his Casa Amor pal George was dumped from the island.

It's impossible not to love the hunk, especially when he dances while he irons his clothes. Or makes eggs. He dances pretty much constantly, it's his thing.

He definitely knows how to make a woman feel good about herself, and is a constant gentleman when it comes to Amber's feelings. Their friendship lights up the world.

Fashion brand In The Style have moulded their love for the contestant into a range of t-shirts dedicated to him, and we've already pre-ordered them all.

The tops come in black or white and sport Ovie-inspired slogans on them, from "Current mood: Ovie" to "What would Ovie do?", there's something for everyone.

The t-shirts cost €13.33 (£12) each and are available in sizes six up to 16 on their website, from Friday, July 19.

Pre-order the tops online now, but hurry because Love Island fans have already been eyeing up the t-shirts on Instagram.

Poor Chris has to watch India fall for Ovie, disappointedly proclaiming; Why’s this my life? It’s not funny. I think I’m getting Ovied”. 

"I got a text…MESSAGE" and "I think I'm getting Ovie'd" both need to be slogan t-shirts, it's an abomination that they're not included.

We all had plenty of respect for ex-Love Island contestant Yewande Biala, especially when she told Danny Williams (remember the travel agent?); "What goes around come around." 

As it turns out, her only regret from her time in the villa was not having the chance to couple up with Ovie Soko, who would have been PERFECT for her with his chill vibes and respect for women.

Ovie arrived during the Casa Amor part of the series, which Yewande just missed out on after being eliminated.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Yewande (@yewande_biala) on

Danny Williams stupidly chose to dump the scientist in favour of newcomer Arabella Chi, and the Dubliner said that they should have brought Ovie in sooner for her.

"Where was Ovie when I was crying in the beach hut saying 'no one likes me,'" Yewande told RTÉ Entertainment.

"That would've been the perfect time to be like, 'Ok we're going to send Ovie in as the bombshell'." He's 100 percent bombshell material, we'll give her that. Yewande also makes a very good point.

She's a firm believer in the idea that "everything happens for a reason", but she admits that she'd have coupled up with Ovie if she had been given the opportunity.

"I'm a real firm believer that everything happens for a reason so I feel that if you did change something, I wouldn't have the outcome – it could be worse, it could be better, I don't know – so I think I'd just leave it as it is," she explained.

"I had an amazing experience, I laughed, I cried, it was great."

Ovie is currently in a friendship couple with Amber Gill, but Yewande is convinced that Amber is, "still too hurt from Michael and I don't think anyone's really going to work romantically, I don't think she's ready for anything romantically in that villa."

What about Irish hunk Greg? We saw sparks when the rugby player and future solicitor met her for a date in the Hideaway. Michael rudely interrupted the pair last night to ask Amber for a chat, the devil.

Yewande expressed her shock at Michael's toxic behaviour towards Amber since their split and Casa Amor recoupling with Joanna Chimonides.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Yewande (@yewande_biala) on

"It's shocking how he's treated her from that, because that's not the Michael that I know," she said.

"I really want to be like, 'What are you doing? Can you just explain your thought process.' I just don't understand what's happened. It's just really unfortunate because I really wanted them to win and I thought if they stayed together they were really strong and they possibly could've won."

We desperately hope Amber calls him a 'dead ting' and walks away, because if she goes back to that horrible man it sets an awful example. You wouldn't treat your pet pooch the way Michael treated her.

Yewande also opened up about life in the Love Island villa; “We’ve no ­concept of time.

“There was a time where Joe (Garratt) found out that you could check the time on the cooker and then they changed it so we’ve no concept of time whatsoever. We always guestimated when the sun came out.”

The contestants are filmed 24 hours a day, and are told to dress up every evening to create a party vibe in the house. They must wait until producers confirm that their filming commitments are over before they go to bed.

The Islanders are also gifted with ­sponsored wardrobes to wear for the duration of their stay and they avail of the laundry service once a week (but don't do any of the housework).

Yewande urged viewers to be aware that the footage they see doesn’t always portray reality, seeing as it's just an hour of television per day.

She told Virgin Media Television’s Ireland AM: “You are only seeing an hour of what went on in 24 or 48 hours so it’s really hard to judge a person’s personality by just watching an hour.”

Yewande admits she’s also sceptical about Maura and Curtis' relationship;

“I just don’t know. When I was in there I didn’t really see it, but I’ve been out of there a while and I know that everything moves really quickly in there.”

She reckons Maura’s head could be turned by newcomer Greg O’Shea, a professional rugby player from Limerick who went on a date with Amber.

Yewande who reckons lovebirds Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague, who are in a relationship, are “smitten”.

However, she warned : “At the end of the day it is a game and not everyone is genuine.”

But while she may have left without a boyfriend, Yewande insists that;

 “It’s a great way to find love, not even just romantic love. It’s a great way to learn about yourself as a person. It’s also great to find an amazing group of friends.”

Steamy scenes ahoy: Love Island viewers tonight could be in for more than they bargained for, with Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury heading off to the Hideaway.

The private bedroom has only seen Curtis and Amy inside it so far this season, while no couple is thought to have had sex the room yet.

Seeing as Molly-Mae and Tommy became officially boyfriend and girlfriend last week and even dropped the L bomb, will they give in to the temptation of the Hideaway?

The teaser for the next episode sees the lucky couple spending the night there. Molly-Mae is left shocked as the Islanders choose her and Tommy to earn some privacy. 

Still dressed in her maid costume after performing a lapdance for the boxer in the Dirty Dancing challenge, she looks scarlet when she's chosen.

“It’s down to you to choose one lucky couple to have a sleepover," the text reads, which was delivered to Maura. A "Tommy and Molly-Mae" chant even erupts in the villa, much to Tommy's embarrassment.

Tommy had everyone's attention after he carried out his lapdance dressed in a boxing robe, before ripping off his trousers for his girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Amber is excited after getting Michael's heart rate racing in the challenge, but it gets chaotic as the girls must decide which boy is getting dumped from the island.

New Essex girl Francesca is torn between Curtis and Ovie, but World War Three will ensue if Ovie is told to leave. Honestly, he's the true hero of the 2019 series, and he deserves love at all costs.

Tune in tonight at 9pm to see what goes down in the Hideaway, and who must pack their bags.
