Love Island couples always keep us guessing; some of them last all but a few weeks, whereas others have surprised us and survived the test of time. Success stories include season three's Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt and seasons two's Olivia and Alex Bowen - with both couples even bringing us some Love Island babies!

But for some, life on the outside is simply worlds away from eight weeks in a luxurious villa - and dramatic breakups come knocking.

Although the ninth series of the hit dating show ended just months ago - with series 10 currently on our screens - some couples have already called it quits on their winter romance. If you're wondering who parted ways a mere few days after arriving at Heathrow airport, we have all the tea.

We've done all the investigative work for you - so read on to find out more.


Love Island Couples : Which couples are still together?

Relationship status: Together

The nation will be overjoyed to know that Love Island 2023 winners Kai and Sanam are still going strong, five months after winning the Winter edition of the show. After entering as a bombshell during Casa Amor, social worker Sanam met teacher Kai and the rest was history! This couple have even confirmed they're officially boyfriend and girlfriend. *eek*

Sanam posts snippets of their loved up life over on TikTok, and it's the cutest thing we've ever seen.

Relationship status: Split

These two got together outside of the villa after both being dumped - but sadly, the bombshell couple went their separate ways pretty quickly. During the Love Island reunion, the cosy pair confirmed that they were dating. But just days after, Zara put out a statement revealing they had called it quits. Posting a statement on Instagram, she wrote 'It's been two and a half weeks of getting to know each other and for now it's a fun friendship between us. We have a lot of respect for each other and that's what matters.'

However, Zara reportedly threw shade at Jordan after he posed for a picture with dumped Islander Aaron Walters and posted it on his Instagram (many will remember that Aaron and Zara clashed in the villa). After Jordan posted the picture featuring the two of them, Zara commented 'posting with the opps' alongside a series of red flag emoji's. Is the respect really still there? Time will tell...

Relationship Status: Together

The farmer and the Aussie bombshell were an unlikely pairing, but they overcame the odds and made it to fifth place on the show! If their adorable farming TikTok's are anything to go by, it's clear the pair are still together!

Will and Jessie were doubted by many, from the public to their fellow Islanders - with everyone questioning how the two would ever make a long distance relationship last. However, they've both since revealed plans to split their time and move around the world together - with Will even out in Australia right now visiting Jessie's family! It looks like these two are in it for the long haul.

Shaq and Tanya had perhaps one of the most turbulent journeys in Love Island history. After Tanya brought Martin Akinola back from Casa Amor, fans were certain the pair would have no choice but to call it quits. However, they worked through the difficult moments and became an official couple... And clearly love does conquer all, as the two are still together now!

Casey O'Gorman and Rosie Seabrook

Relationship Status: Split

Well, we can't say we didn't see this one coming... Casey and Rosie were the first couple to split from the ninth series, releasing their breakup news on the same day as Zara and Jordan's breakup.
Casey wrote on his Instagram stories, 'Rosie and I have spoken ...she's such a great girl. Life outside the villa is just very different and we will remain friends moving forward!' Rosie later came out and claimed that the islander had ghosted her just two weeks after finishing on the show. So, that's that!

But whilst it might be over between Casey and Rosie, it was recently rumoured that Casey might be rekindling his romance with Claudia Fogarty - who he ditched on the show to pursue a romance with Rosie. After the pair were spotted leaving some flirty comments on social media, fans are convinced that there might be a love story yet!

Relationship status: Together

Runners up Ron and Lanahad their moments in the villa after Ron's head-turning landed him in hot water - but despite the odds, these two lovebirds left the villa as an official couple. They stated during the Love Island reunion that they are still together and even went on a double date with BFF's Kai and Sanam.

However, not all Love Island fans are convinced. On their flight home from South Africa, they reportedly got into an argument on the plane and left in separate taxi's upon landing. With rumours of their rocky romance flying around, Ron explained that he actually just had too much alcohol on the plane, stressing that they never usually argue. He explained, 'I had a few too many bevvies, and to be honest Lana just looked out for me. I had a great flight. We just creased about it.'

Tom and Samie smiling together following the final7 of 8

Tom Clare and Samie Elishi

Relationship Status: Split (for now...)

Tom and Samie finished third and seemingly had a pretty smooth ride on the show - apart some Casa Amor mishaps. They left the villa as an exclusive couple and revealed that they were officially boyfriend and girlfriend soon after.

However, their relationship on the outside wasn't meant to be. Just a mere few months after revealing their relationship status, the two announced they had parted ways. In an Instagram statement, Tom said, 'I didn't think I'd be writing this one but me & Samie have gone our separate ways. I'm gutted it's come to an end but I truly wish Samie the best.'

However, a reunion could be on the cards after these two were spotted hand in hand at a recent premiere, leading fans to think romance could be on the cards once more. Watch this space...

Olivia had quite a ride in the villa, coupling up with Tom, Harris, Kai and Spencer in her quest to find love. And after stepping foot into Casa Amor, she finally found her Prince Charming in Maxwell. However, shortly after leaving the villa, rumours of a break swirled after Maxwell jetted off to Mexico - without Olivia.

A rep for Olivia later confirmed the split, telling that it was a mutual decision to break up. They said, 'Things weren’t the same between Olivia and Maxwell after they left the villa. Life has been hectic and they both decided it was best to end things.'
