Love Island 2022 news – Gemma & Luca ALREADY 'distant'; plus two Islanders admit they've stolen items from villa | The Sun

LOVE Island pair Gemma and Luca were reportedly "distant" the moment the cameras stopped rolling on the finale, a source has claimed.

Gemma, 19 and Luca, 23, had a tough relationship in the villa over the course of the eight weeks, as fans across the globe accused the fishmonger of being a bully.

And now, a source has claimed the pair looked unhappy as soon as the finale came to an end.

“As soon as the cameras stopped, they let go of each other, they were no longer holding each other. They sat around the fire pit and were distanced, whereas usually they were all over each other,” an eye-witness told The Mirror.

The eye-witness continued: “Luca and Gemma hugged everyone but then as soon as they hugged everyone they left. And everybody else stayed, Gemma and Luca just went.

“He said a general thank you to everyone and then left which was fair enough but Dami, especially, walked around to every person and said thank you and it just shows the difference in personalities.”

However, another insider suggested this couldn't be further from the truth, saying: “All of the finalists were in such high spirits last night as they celebrated the final and Davide and Ekin-Su’s win.”

Meanwhile, another of the show's loved up couples have revealed the TWO things they stole when leaving the villa.

Tasha and Andrew took these special items before leaving the show.

The smitten pair pinched the name signs from their bed to keep in their new home.

    When will Love Island be back?

    After another hugely successful season, Love Island is set to return much sooner than you may expect.

    2023 will see TWO series hit our screens, as the winter version returns.

    The return of the beloved winter version will kick start the New Year with a fresh batch of Love Islanders heading to South Africa.

    ITV bosses explained it was a no-brainer to dish out two series of Love Island next year.

    “Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer," said Paul Mortimer, director of reality commissioning and controller, ITV2.

    "So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.”

    Why and how did Ekinde win?

    A few weeks ago, it seemed ludicrous to suggest that Ekin-Su and Davide might be in the final.

    But as the final drew closer, it seemed to be between them and Damiyah, as many fans also couldn’t get their head around Tasha and Andrew.

    So how did Ekin-Su and Davide win over the hearts of fans of the show?

    1. Their love story wasn’t simple. There was the Jay thing and Ekin-Su making clear that she needs a man who will do more, leading him to make her breakfast!

    2. Davide’s one-liners and misunderstanding of the word celibacy.

    3. Ekin-Su constantly rising above others attempting to tear her down, and instead choosing to big them up.

    Adam Collard praises Paige, saying she brought out a 'different side to him'

    Season Four's bad boy seems to have turned a new leaf, uploading a photo of himself and Paige to Instagram as they pose for Aftersun.

    The two are beaming from the picture, that Adam wrote in his caption: "I’d be lying if I said that it wasn’t down to this one for making it the best time ever and bringing out a completely different side to me."

    He went on to swipe: "if anyone sees me around a departure gate to palma around June time in the future, have a word x."

    Fans still aren't convinced with their romance, after Paige's mother told her she "wasn't buying it."

    One fan replied: "Always trust your mum, not buying it. How true."

    Another disagreed: "Happy you found Paige. Please prove the haters wrong. She's gone through so much hate."

    Davide may be the first self-made millionaire on Love Island

    The recent winner of the show has so far avoided talking about his profession while on the show.

    However it’s come to light that the 27-year-old owns a shisha business, and has a masters degree in finance and banking.

    While many question whether he needs the £50,000 prize money, this new information hasn’t put them off him and instead there’s more support of the winning couple.

    One Twitter user tweeted: “I just learnt that Davide is an entrepreneur owning a shisha business.

    “This guy was always meant to have a Turkish wife. I’m convinced they’re soulmates. I can’t get over them two!! #EKINDE”

    A huge announcement was made in the middle of Love Island finale

    Despite complaints about reality shows, ITV is rebooting one.

    There have been rumours for months about the legendary Big Brother returning to our screens.

    But gone are the days of Davina McCall and Dermott O’Leary, and iconic contestants including Alison Hammond, the late and loved Nikki, and Aisleyne.

    The announcement came in the middle of the Love Island finale on Monday night, much to the shock of many viewers and fans.

    @TobiRachel_ tweeted: “Big Brother announcing their comeback in the middle of the #LoveIsland finale is extremely iconic and chaotic. Just like the show. BIG BROTHER WILL SEE YOU NOW”

    Best speech moments from this year’s final (1/2)

    Tasha and Andrew may have stolen the speech spotlight last night.

    Despite coming fourth, fans are now firmly on board with their relationship.

    However, there were a number of other great lines from speeches throughout the night. Here are some of them.

    Let’s start with the winners – Ekin-Su and Davide.
    Ekin-Su said to her beau: “The first evening I entered the villa, I saw your face, and the spark was instant.

    “Its been a hell of a ride for us, but things don’t come easy… Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were we.”

    Meanwhile Davide said: “It seems like we’ve known each other forever when two souls are destined to be together they cannot escape each other.

    “We have a world to enjoy together and I’m so excited about what the future holds for us.”

    Fans confused why Gemma’s dad missed parent episode

    In the lead up to the final, the islanders got to meet each other’s families.

    Despite making clear that he’s proud of his daughter, Michael Owen failed to turn up for the episode to support Gemma.

    Fans continue to speculate why the footballer wasn’t present at the penultimate episode.

    In last night’s final, Gemma and Luca came second to winners Ekin-Su and Davide, after which Owen took to Instagram to share an image with is daughter and the caption: “She’s done us proud.”

    Laura stole the show in last night’s final

    The Love Island host always brings glamour and style on the show.

    While Laura always wears outfits that get people talking, last night was no exception, but not in the usual way.

    Instead, viewers were left confused by the 37-year-old‘s fashion choice.

    Stanger Things star, Noah Schnapp also caught the action and shared: “Yes!!!” under Ekin-Su’s Instagram snap of her with her beau, Davide.

    Andrew’s and Tasha’s speeches made them make sense

    These two were ones that seemed to be drawing the most confusion as the final drew closer.

    However during the Summer Ball speeches, Tasha and Andrew gave viewers an insight into their relationship and suddenly everything changed.

    In particular, viewers learned that Andrew takes out Tasha’s hearing aid, a cochlear implant, when she’s asleep.

    Tasha said: “Thank you for accepting me for me and loving my superpower. The fact that when I fall asleep and you take out the cochlear implant for me, that’s how I know you’re the one. So here’s to you and me, our future. I’m so mad about you and I love you.

    “My dad said, “She’s my princess and there’s room for a prince and you’ll be fantastic at it.””

    Love Island fans convinced one couple have already secretly split

    Deji, 25, and Lacey, 25, had coupled up on Love Island just days before they were brutally dumped from the show two weeks ago.

    They were one of two couples who were deemed the "least compatible" by viewers watching the series at home – with Nathalia Campos and Reece Ford also waving goodbye.

    Deji often takes to social media to discuss his brief romance with fellow Islander – and third place contestant – Indiyah Polack, ignoring his time with Lacey.

    One fan kickstarted the debate on Twitter: "Has Deji even said Lacey's name since leaving the villa? Every day Indiyah."

    Another chimed in: "Whenever he talks about Lacey he does so with so much 'depression', there's no excitement. However, his commentary on Indiyah takes up most of his interviews."
