Mentally, we're in the Love Island villa rn.

Any year will do but there is something rather appealing about the lads of Love Island 2023.

Scrap that, we've just remembered that Dami Hope and Adam Collard were part of the Love Island 2022 cast, take us back there please.

Chilling on a yellow beanbag under the scorching Mallorca sun, while Davide Sanclimenti massages our feet and Adam works the shoulders.

We're hoping Dami surprises us with a spontaneous coffee or smoothie, too.

Andrew Le Page's off getting it on with Tasha Ghouri and we're fine with that.

In reality we're working in a cold living room because even though it's July we live in England and all we did was blink and it's raining again.

So let's embrace escapism and reminisce about Love Island 2022 and the gorgeous Islanders who scorched up our boiling hot summer. Mmm.

Who won Love Island 2022?

Davide and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu took the crown, followed by runners-up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish in second place, Dami and Indiyah Polack in third place, and Andrew and Tasha in fourth place.

Paige Thorne and Adam just missed out on the final, coming in fifth place.

In 2022, ITV promised fans a winter and a summer series in 2023 and they delivered.

The winterversion has now been and gone, with Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan taking the crown. Sanam even made history as the first Casa Amor girl to win the show, forever obsessed.

As for the 2023 summer series it has been one hell of a journey and will, sadly, being come to a close within the next week, with the finale airing Monday 31 July.
