While the official countdown for Winter Love Island 2023 begins, you may find yourself wondering about the previous lineup of singles. So here's where the Love Island 2022 cast is now, from which couples made it IRL, to which stars returned to their day jobs!

While the Love Island 2023 cast has now been confirmed and we'll soon be seeing host Maya Jama make her slow-mo walk debut—we can't help but think about the previous contestants. From winners Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti to the ever-stylish Tasha Ghouri, it seems their time in Mallorca (where Love Island is filmed) has proven rather fruitful.

Love Island season 8 itself, gave us some of the most memorable Love Island moments ever—especially during *that* Casa Amor recoupling, where the islanders moved madder (a Love Island phrase you need to know) than they'd ever done before! Not to mention all the meme content the gang afforded us—we're looking at you, Davide.

So, with this all in mind—where is the Love Island 2022 lineup now? From brand deals to TV shows, here's what became of the islanders...

The official Love Island 2022 lineup

Paige Thorne

Paige Throne was one of the OG islanders and while things initially seemed strong with Jacques O'Neil, she actually finished the show in fifth place with returning islander Adam Collard, who swept her off her feet.

Paige and Adam became official once they left the villa but have not gone their separate ways, following a number of cheating rumors. 

Since the split, Swansea local Paige has actually returned to her old job as a paramedic. She told OK: "I always planned to return to my job after Love Island. I’m on what’s called a bank contract, so I can choose my shifts but I dedicate one day every week to paramedic-related work.”

She also recently announced her partnership with the charity Age Uk, citing: "I’ve always had a soft spot for the older generations and I’m beyond grateful to be a part of this campaign❤️

Dami Hope

Third-place winner Dami Hope, who is still in a relationship with fellow islander Indiyah Polack—making them one of the few Love Island couples still together—is living his best influencer life.

From posting cute couple snaps with Indiyah, to modeling shots and even walking a few red carpets—including the NTAs. He's also worked and collab with a number of brands on Instagram, including eBay (who were Love Island 2022's fashion partner) and Google.

Indiyah Polack

Since leaving the villa in third place with Dami, Indiyah Polack has been on fire! From collabs with Eyelure to creating her very own edit with Pretty Little Thing—she's even just been announced as one of the new Love Island Aftersun panelists!

Alongside Made In Chelsea's Sam Thompson, the model/influencer and now TV presenter, will join Maya Jama every Sunday from January 16th, to discuss all the Love Island 2023 antics. Plus she'll also be hosting The Morning After podcast with Sam!

Announcing the news on Twitter, Indiyah wrote: "WHAT A WAY TO START THE YEAR!! Super excited to announce that I’m the newest Love Island Podcast host with the amazing Sam Thompson not only that but an Aftersun panelist alongside Maya and Sam honestly such a pinch-me moment to be back on your screens again! LETS GOO."

Liam Llewellyn

Liam decided to leave the villa after just four days but since then he's graduated from University, reconnected with some of his fellow islanders and accumulated a whopping 300k followers on Instagram.

While it's unclear what's next for Liam, it's safe to say he's enjoying post-graduate life!

Tasha Ghouri

After finishing in fourth place with boyfriend Andrew Le Page, Tasha has been named eBay's first-ever pre-love brand ambassador. She's also modeled for Ann Summers' summer and Christmas campaigns and posed for a number of magazine covers.

Plus, she and Andrew have moved in together and become fan favorites on TikTok for their adorable content. They've even walked a number of red carpets together. So, it's safe to say things are going pretty darn well for Tasha since her Love Island stint!

Davide Sanclimenti

Self-proclaimed Italian Stallion, Davide was the winner of Love Island 2022, with now girlfriend Ekin-Su and since leaving the villa has made quite the career for himself. 

He launched his own collection with Boohoo in October 2022, followed by the release of his and Ekin-Su's TV show 'Homecomings,' where the pair road-tripped to Italy and Turkey.

Since snagging the win, the couple has gone on to move in together, with Davide even getting Ekin what fans think is a promise ring for Christmas...we hear wedding bells!


Love Island Winner and former actress *read in Davide's voice* Ekin-Su has enjoyed some very exciting career developments since leaving the villa. From becoming the face of Oh Polly and launching her own dreamy collection, to hers and Davide's ITV show, Homecomings, Ekin-Su is unstoppable.

She's also recently been announced as one of the contestants for Dancing on Ice 2023, so get ready to see her spin on the ice!

Gemma Owen

Since leaving the villa in August, Gemma has released her own edit with Pretty Little Thing and collaborated with brands like Abbott Lyon. The dressage rider has also posed for a number of magazine shoots, including one for Tatler magazine.  

Romance-wise though, despite coming in second place, Gemma and Luca have now split, just a few months after becoming official.

Ikenna Ekwonna

Ikenna has also become quite the influencer thanks to his TikToks and aesthetic Insta snaps. Since leaving the villa his follower count has hit 200k and he's attended a number of VIP events—including Maya Jama's famous Halloween party.

He's also since appeared in Chanel 4's documentary, Life After Love Island alongside a number of his castmates and shared his experience post-villa life, saying: "You come out thinking, ‘Oh, it’s Love Island. Everyone after Love Island is set and coming out of it, you’re like, ‘Where is it?’”

Andrew Le Page

As mentioned, since leaving the villa in fourth, Andrew and Tasha have gone on to move in together and seem to just be going from strength to strength—even enjoying a getaway to Australia together.

Before entering the villa Andrew worked as a Real Estate agent in Dubai, while we know he now lives in London with Tasha it's unclear whether he's returned to his old job—with 'Real Estate Agent' still cited in his Insta bio.

Since his stint on Love Island though, Andrew has amassed 800 thousand Insta followers and has attended a number of glitzy events with Tasha on his arm—cute!

Amber Beckford

Following the show, Amber Beckford has hit 160 thousand followers on Instagram and keeps fans up to date with her latest outfits but it's unclear if the islander has returned to her previous job as a nanny.

Luca Bish

While he has now split from Gemma, Luca has made the most of his Love Island fame, releasing a style edit with Prevu. He's also surpassed the one million follower mark on Instagram!

The fish-flop lover also announced his own YouTube series 'Bish N' Chips' in September, but so far no content or videos have been released.
