Who Won Love Island 2019? It’s Only Amber And Our Greg!
After eight weeks of flings, fights, flirting and general frenzy, Love Island is over for another year – and Irish eyes are smiling!
It wasn’t Maura who scooped the spoils, though – in fact, she and Curtis finished in fourth (yeah, FOURTH) place. We trust a national tribunal will begin within the week.
Instead, it was Limerick’s own Greg O’Shea who emerged victorious, alongside Amber, to claim the £50,000 jackpot (which they shared, of course!)
A model of efficiency – as opposed to a a model of the regular kind, which he could be too – Greg spent a mere 12 days on the show, but that was enough to win both fair maiden and fair dues.

Having recited a poem as his written declaration of love – and twerked up a sweat in the garden earlier on – it was hard not to acknowledge how likeable the Irishman was during his time in the house. Mind, watching early favourites like Molly-Mae and Tommy pipped to the prize, you couldn’t help but wonder if he just had the rub of the green when it came to timing; die as a hero and all that lark…
Perhaps the biggest news coming out of the evening? The aforementioned Molly-Mae and Tommy are moving in together! We would be utterly shocked if they didn’t share that new home with a load of cameras – for what would a reality show be without a spin-off these days?!
But that shouldn’t take away from the happy, winning couple. She was the first one into the villa; he was the last. And at a time when Anglo-Irish relations are strained, maybe they’ll inspire us all to be our best selves…
Well we’re all about British-Irish relations so congratulations Greg & Amber! #LoveIslandFinal #LoveIsland ☘️🇮🇪🇬🇧💚 https://t.co/CxOr0k4Aop— Embassy of Ireland (@IrelandEmbGB) July 29, 2019
And so, that’s it for another year…BUT WAIT! While we’d normally only have a Christmas special to look forward to between now and next summer, there’ll be a brand new series throughout the winter, beginning in the new year! And (surely) a show in Tommy and Molly-Mae’s new gaff! And…well, we’ll wait to see what else! One things for sure, though; while the series might be over, our love island will never die…
