Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies have won ‘Love Island’.
The 21-year-old hairdresser and his 20-year-old girlfriend beat off competition from three other couples in the live final of the ITV2 reality show on Monday to be crowned the winners of a whopping £50,000.
The pair - who were stunned into silence when their names were read out - faced the final two alongside nation’s favourite Camilla Thurlow and her partner Jamie Jewitt, whom she dubbed as “too good to be true” just moments before finding herself falling short of the winning spot.
Earlier in the show, Blazin’ Squad’s Marcel Sommerville and his partner Gabby Allen found themselves in fourth place, shortly behind Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood who were booted off in third.
But just winning the public vote wasn’t all Kem and Amber had to do, as after being told they had won, they were faced with one more task.
Host Caroline Flack had them each pick an envelope, one which contained the £50,000 prize fund, and one which contained nothing. Whoever picked the envelope with the whopping sum inside was able to do what they wanted with the money, and could either keep it for themselves or share it with their partner.
After having the grace to let Amber pick her envelope first, it was Kem who managed to bag the cash, and after an audience member told him to share the money with his pal Chris, the hunk decided to honour his girlfriend by splitting the funds with her.
He said: “Of course I’m going to share it”.
Meanwhile, despite coming in second place, Camilla told Caroline she was pleased with her run on the show, and although she says her break up with former partner Jonny Mitchell - who ditched the blonde beauty in favour of newcomer Tyla Carr earlier in the series - was a “low point” for her, she is thankful for it as it helped shape her throughout the show.
