Love Island's biggest success stories after the first three series churned out rock-solid relationships

LOVE Island is set to return to our TV screens for another summer packed full of hot hot lovin' and dramatic twist and turns.

Last year's series of the hit show was sadly cancelled from our screens amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

But ITV bosses have now thankfully confirmed that the show will definitely be going ahead this year – although they're yet to announce an actual release date.

Already there are rumours that the show, hosted by Laura Whitmore, will be bigger than better than ever.

There's even growing speculation that Holly Ramsay, daughter of Gordon Ramsay, is set to join the villa in a quest to find love.

So, while we wait eagerly on the edge of our seats for the next group of sexy singles to hit the villa, let's take a look back at some of the couples from the first three series' who are still going strong after all these years…

While the couple came in second place, losing out to fan favourites Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde, they're absolutely winning when it comes to their romance.

Just a year after leaving the villa, a smitten Alex popped the question on New Year's Eve.

The couple tied the knot in mid-September 2018 during a lavish ceremony at Gosfield Hall in Essex.

Despite moving in together just months after leaving the villa, the couple called time on their relationship in April 2017.

Just one month later, former circus performer Cara announced her shock pregnancy – but said that Nathan was fully supportive and would be there every step of the way.

The couple reunited soon after their son Feddie-George was born in December 2017, and tied the knot almost two years later on Friday, June, 28, 2019.

Lovebirds Camilla, 31, and Jamie, 30, finished off in second place on the 2017 series of the show.

However, the pair opted to stay largely out of the limelight and keep their relationship under wraps, focusing instead on charity work and taking care of their two adorable dogs, Audrey and Gus.

But that doesn't mean they're not stronger than ever – in fact, they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Nell Sophia, in October 2020.

While Camilla, who previously snogged Prince Harry, had admitted their relationship is "tricky" and "complex" at times, the couple are well and truly smitten.

In February of this year, Jamie popped the question with a stunning engagement ring.

The new dad enlisted the help of baby Nell for the sweet proposal too, dressing the adorable tot in a onesie with the words "will you marry my daddy?" on it.
