Love Island: Which couples are still together almost a year after leaving the villa?

Love Island 2018 captivated the British public with its strong personalities.

The final line up appeared strong, with couples Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer, Wes Nelson and Megan Barton Hanson, Laura Anderson and Paul Knops and Josh Denzel and Kazimir Crossley surviving to the end.

Jack and Dani found love at the very start of the show, and stayed together till the very end.

Other couples fizzled out midway, such as Laura and Wes – who both found love with other Islanders.

Laura had a brief romance with Jack Fowler, who ended up leaving the villa romantically involved with Laura Crane.

Fans predicted Adam Collard and Zara McDermott wouldn’t last, but did they stick together?

Jack and Dani – SPLIT

Jack and Dani split for a second time just one day after the launch of Dani’s book.

The former stationary salesman said on Instagram he and Dani would “always have love for each other” but “sometimes things aren’t meant to be”.

The split came as a surprise for fans, who thought Jack and Dani were a perfect match.

The two hit it off and stayed together from the very start of Love Island.

Dani and Jack were the first couple to officially become girlfriend and boyfriend in the villa.

They even spoke openly about their plans of moving in together.

After leaving Jack even told The Sun he and Dani would get married the next year.

He said: “We’re getting married next year, 100 per cent. Like my mum said to me so many times, ‘When you know about someone, you just know’. And now I know what she’s talking about. I just know that’s what we want to do.”

Wes and Megan – SPLIT

Wes and Megan split during Wes’ stint on Dancing on Ice 2018.

After leaving the villa Wes and Megan, or Wegan as they were affectionately known, were loved-up.

They had coupled up in the villa after Wes dumped Laura.

Since then they went from strength to strength, and even moved in together.

However, things became rocky for the couple after Wes took part in Dancing On Ice 2019.

Megan accused Wes’ dance partner Vanessa Bauer of using her recent break-up as a way of getting publicity.

Despite things cooling off in recent days, Megan took to Instagram to reveal: “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate.

“We have been working hard for well under a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much, we will remain separate.

“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we ever have been.

“We are parents first and foremost to one incredibly wonderful hamster and we ask for his and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

“We haven’t really conducted our relationship that privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner. Love, Megan & Wes.”

She added: “In all seriousness, I am so grateful and so blessed to have found Wes, I will always love and adore him and I am so lucky to call him my best friend.

“It has been an incredibly hard decision to make for both of us but we are looking forward to moving on together as friends and supporting each other in everything we do.”

Laura and Paul – SPLIT

Laura and Paul became Love Island runners up, but never made their relationship official.

Since leaving the villa they gave it a good go, but have called time on their relationship.

She told OK! Magazine: “I was hoping that when he came back [from holiday] we’d spend more time together and build a proper relationship out of the villa. It didn’t happen.”

Meanwhile, Paul told The Sun they weren’t “compatible for each other”.

Zara and Adam – TOGETHER

Zara confirmed she and Adam had split on Instagram.

In her post, she said: “I am heartbroken to announce that Adam and I have parted ways.

“I love him very much and will always have a special place in m heart for him and our time together.

“I have tried so hard to be the best person I can possibly be and to make it work.

“Sometimes in life, you just aren’t enough for someone, no matter what you do for them or how much you try to be.

“For everyone asking if I’m okay, I don’t know what I am. But I know that soon I will be.

“I will be strong and prove to myself that I can get through this.”

Zara and Adam surprised fans after they stayed together after exiting the villa, even moving in together.

Zara told OK! Magazine: “We’re officially boyfriend and girlfriend now. Adam told me he loved me a few nights after he got back and I definitely love him too.”

Samira and Frankie – SPLIT

Samira didn’t want to continue her Love Island journey without Frankie, and left to be with him.

While they did become boyfriend/girlfriend official, they eventually ended splitting up in August.

Their relationship had been rocky since footage of Frankie getting close and personal with a girl in a nightclub emerged.

A representative from Samira said she would be “taking some time out from her relationship with Frankie to focus on herself and future work opportunities.

“They have spoken in depth about the recent events and Samira feels a break for now is the best thing for both of them so they can see what the future holds.”
