Love Island 2021 is officially over, with the final islanders being handed back their phones and jetting back home to the UK, and winners Liam Reardon and Millie Court looking as loved up as ever.
The pair, who won the cash prize and decided to split the £50,000 between them, swapped their swimwear for comfy tracksuits to head home.
Strolling out of the airport, the couple held hands and shared a kiss in front of the cameras.
In more sweet snaps, Millie, 24, can be seen gazing up at Liam, 22, as they giggled away together.
On Instagram, they also posted a snap of the pair of them masked up on the plane with Millie simply writing: ‘We’re coming home.’
Elsewhere, their fellow finalists also headed to social media to update fans, with runners up Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran keeping things very on brand and sharing a snap from an airport play area.
‘First date at the play area x,’ Chloe, 25, joked. ‘Thank you everyone so so so so so much for all your messages and support it’s crazyyy!! ❤️❤️’.
Sharing a sweet video together, she was also quick to get in on the meme action, writing: ‘#NoWhey. Doesn’t even seem reaalll. Thank you so much everyone!’
Toby, 22, is clearly thrilled to jump into his first relationship, adding next to a photo of him and Chloe: ‘First GF vibes! We back!’
Teddy Soares and Faye Winter, who came third, also couldn’t resist a loved-up airport photo, with the pair of them both sporting masks.
‘They say don’t catch feelings, catch flights, what if you’ve caught both? 🤷🏽♂️ 🤣 #sorrynotsorry,’ Teddy, 26, joked, with Faye, 26, thanking fans for their support.
Meanwhile, Kaz Kamwi, 26, and Tyler Cruickshank, 26, who placed fourth, kept things slightly more low key on social media, simply posting a photo from the plane.
While many viewers were hooked to Love Island this year, the series also sparked more than 35,000 complaints.
ITV boss Kevin Lygo said at the Edinburgh TV Festival, that he ‘isn’t worried’ about the number of people who complain but more concerned about the topic of complaint.
He added that an ‘editorial call’ sometimes has to be made and the makers of Love Island ‘get the tone right’.
Lygo said: ‘The thing about complaints these days is every week there is a new most-complained-about show. It’s very easy now to complain, it wasn’t so long ago you had to go to the post office and get a stamp and now it’s the click of a button.
‘I’m not so much worried about how many complain as what they are complaining about.
With duty of care, I think improvements across the board have been made and we are the gold standard, Ofcom took our recommendations and made them what should be done.’
Love Island is available for catch-up on the ITV Hub.
