Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti were crowned the winners during Monday night's final and they deserved it! Ekin-De carried this series with their drama, fiery arguments and hilarious one liners - but how much did they win by?

ITV has now revealed the final voting stats and Ekin-De won by a landslide. The other Love Island finalists included runners up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish, Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope in third place and Tasha Ghouri and Andrew LePage in fourth.

In one of the shows biggest victories, Ekin-Su and Davide won the crown by a mile with a staggering 63.7% of the votes from the public. The pair were way ahead of second place finalists Gemma and Luca who received 14.5% of the votes. Following closely behind them was Indiyah and Dami with 11.8% of votes. Meanwhile fourth place Islanders Tasha and Andrew claimed 10.1%.

Many fans were also shocked to learn just how close 2nd, 3rd and 4th place were. It really was anyone's game after first place as the margins were so small.
