Which Love Island couples have broken up? And who is hinting at a return to TV...?!
It’s fair to say that our Love Island addiction got pretty out of control last summer – but we’re not complaining.
Yup. We’re not afraid to admit that we cancelled plans to stay home and catch up on the latest gossip from the Love Island villa, and we developed some pretty strong feelings about the couples’ relationships. We’re still not over Terry Walsh’s treatment of Malin Andersson, or her epic comeback moment which saw her confront him.
Now that was reality TV gold right there.
We also still check in on the islanders every once in a while to see how they’re doing.
With a new series looming, we’re taking the opportunity to look back at the 2016 line-up.
1. Cara and Nathan
Obvs, we need to start with the winners.
Coupling up in the very first episode, these two stuck it out for the entire series. With his cheeky chappy ways and her straight-talking attitude, we sussed out pretty quickly that they were going to be one entertaining duo.
They said the ‘L’ word and split the prize money.
Sadly, though, Nara are no more.
Despite moving in together, the reality TV couple have parted ways (with Nathan describing their time on the ITV show as ‘the best summer of our lives’) and have also appeared in The Only Way Is Essex to talk about their break-up.
2. Kady and Scott
One of our favourite moments from the 2016 series of Love Island had to be when Scott asked Kady to be his girlfriend through the art of towel arrangement. We mean, cuteness overload.
After a lot of tantrums and make-or-break moments, the pair proved themselves to be one of the most relatable couples on the show and made it into the final.
They’re still going strong and recently enjoyed a romantic trip to the Maldives.
3. Terry Walsh

It’s safe to say that Terry was responsible for a lot of the most talked about moments of the series. OF COURSE, there was the on-screen dumping of Malin (who was watching from her sofa at home) and her epic comeback to confront him after he moved on with newcomer Emma Woodhams.
Nobody believed that Terry and Emma would make it, but after leaving the villa they made things offish and even moved in together.
Sadly, though, they have now split up.
4. Olivia and Alex
Now, we know that Alex hit a bit of a stumbling block when he spent the night with Zara Holland in the hideaway (yup, had you forgotten that?!).
But following that, we watched ‘Liv and Alex grow closer and closer, and we really found ourselves caring about their romance.
The pair are still going strong – and have become the first couple to get engaged from the 2016 show. Congrats, guys!
5. Adam Maxted
Poor Adam was pretty unlucky in love. He didn’t seem to find his match for the majority of the series, but then fell for Katie Salmon when she arrived at the last minute.
The pair made it to fourth place, but seemed to go their separate ways not long after.
Away from the show, Adam appears to have found romance with a new lady and is also working hard towards his goal of becoming a professional wrestler.
6. Rykard and Rachel
Ry’ made hearts MELT when he decided to walk away from the show to be with nurse Rachel.
There was a slight hiccup when Carolina Flack had to tell Rach’ that he’d spent the night with Olivia earlier on, but they’ve forgiven and forgotten since then.
The couple still share loved-up selfies on the regular, and we love them for it.
7. Daniel Lukakis
Despite constantly telling people he wanted to ‘get to know’ them, Dan didn’t have much luck on the ITV show.
He still keeps in touch with some of the Love Island lads – he was spotted out with Nathan and Rykard recently – and he co-owns a clothing brand.
8. Sophie Gradon
Sophie had quite an emotional time in the villa. She coupled up with Tom Powell from early, but the couple weren’t without their problems.
After he was voted out of the show, Soph’ stayed and ended up coupling up with Katie. But she then decided that it was Tom she wanted, walking out on the series to be with him.
Despite giving things a good go in the real world, the Love Island couple eventually called time on their relationship.
Now, according to her Instagram, Sophie seems super loved-up with a new beau.
You might have a hard time remembering this islander, as she only stayed in the villa for one day.
After she stole Scott Thomas for a date (brave move, miss), she and Kady got into a bit of an altercation.
Kady accidentally spilt drink on her shoe, and things got very sweary, very quickly, before newcomer Malia was asked to leave.
If her Twitter account is anything to go by, she’s been dropping some heavy hints that she might be set to make a TV comeback this year.
Malia tweeted recently: ‘Secret meetings this weekend 😍🌴🎥’, leaving fans questioning whether she might be getting a second chance on Love Island.
She replied to one fan: ‘Thanks Hun, might be a different show 👀We gona turn it up for sure! 💜🤘🏽’.
Oooh. Has she got a different TV appearance lined up?!
She added: ‘Hey Guys! Am gutted what happened to me on Love Island last year, but this year might all change. Thanks to everyone who had my back 💜’.
One thing’s for sure, we cannot WAIT for the new series…
