Love Island host Caroline Flack subtly debunked a theory during last night’s final that the winners always stand on her left as she reads the results.
Eagle-eyed viewers pointed out that the all of the previous champions from the ITV2 reality show had been placed on the viewers’ right and warned audiences of the pattern.
However Caroline broke the chain for series five, as winning couple Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea were waiting to her right as runners up Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague took the left side.
It was an intense finale last night, with Ovie Soko and India Reynolds coming in third place and Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard landing fourth.
Speaking about their triumph, a stunned Amber said: ‘I just don’t believe it,’ while Greg described it as ‘crazy.’
Praising the winning couple, Tommy added: ‘Amber has had a hard time in here, she deserves everything that’s coming to her.’
‘It would be fair to say I’ve had quite a journey in the villa this summer,’ Amber said in her exit interview, which was watched by a staggering 3.63million people.
‘There have been so many highs, but I’ve still had some quite low lows.
‘[Greg] came in in the 11th hour; just when I thought there was nothing left for me in the villa, everything changed.
‘He picked me up when I was at my most vulnerable, and helped me rediscover my smile. It’s been absolutely wild… a rollercoaster of emotion.’
Love Island returns to ITV2 in winter 2020.
