Ah, we absolutely adore a successful Love Island, erm, love story especially when it's from a couple as adorable as Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan.

The duo won the winter version of the show last year and made history with Sanam being the first Casa Amor girly to be declared the queen of the villa. It's giving Disney princess.

Not only are Kai and Sanam still going strong, but they recently announced they are engaged and we just KNEW these two were in it for the long haul.

The unproblematic duo donned all white ensembles as Kai dropped to one knee and proposed to Sanam during a boat trip in Cambridge.

See? Love Island is about finding The One and not just the one fashion deal to turn you into Molly Mae Hague.

What does Kai Fagan do?

Kai has an impressive THREE degrees and prior to his Love Island stint he was a teacher.

In his exit interview, he said, "Before I came in here (the Love Island villa) I wanted to start up a business and help kids get into physical activity.

"I don’t want to turn my back on teaching, working with young kids and think I will use some of that to do that. I am not sure yet in what capacity."

Kai kept to his word and returned to the classroom just a few weeks after he won the dating show.

He is also a semi-professional rugby player for Burnage RFC and has his own rugby focused podcast called Scoring Tries Pod.
