Let's not lie, Love Island was iconic in 2019.

We had Amber Gill remaining a true queen, we were first introduced to Molly-Mae Hague, and Maura Higgins putting Tom Walker in his place was TV gold.

Also, remember when Yewande Biala said that iconic "have a nice life" line? Sherif Lanre got kicked off the show nine days into the series and Michael Griffiths mugged Amber off but then changed his mind when Joanna Chimonides was dumped.

Oh, and we'll never forget Anna Vakili screaming at her boyfriend Jordan Hames for trying to crack on with India Reynolds just two days after they became an official couple. So shady.

After Amber and Greg O'Shea were crowned the winners of Love Island 2019 the Islanders have gone on to have major success and we dare we say it? Are probably the most famous bunch of Love Island stars around.

Who won Love Island in 2019?

Despite being mugged off by Michael when he returned from Casa Amor with Joanna, Amber still managed to win the show.

She was in a friendship couple with BFF Ovie Soko for quite some time but the last bombshell to enter the villa - Greg - managed to sweep her off her feet and the rest is history.

Well, they've since split but are both loved up in new relationships.

Amber is dating footballer Jen Beattie and Greg is now coupled up with presenter Jeanni Mulder.

Are the Love Island 2019 couples still together?

There's only one couple from Love Island 2019 series that's still together and it's Molly-Mae and Tommy. It might come as a shock to viewers who branded Molly as 'Money Mae' during her time in the villa and Anton Danyluk who accused her of playing a game - shortly after she pied him.

Molly gave birth to baby Bambi earlier on this year and the duo seem to be happier than ever.

Former Love Island stars have also opened up and revealed all their tips, tricks and advice on being successful during the audition process.

Amy Hart has even shared a video of her audition to give everyone some inspiration and we have to admit it's very creative.

Oh and make sure you've read the rules for inside the villaso you don't do a Sherif and get kicked off the show.
