The previous night, Andrew had returned to social media while she and Tasha were staying in the villa, sharing a fun video of the couple relaxing together in bed.

While the hunk couldn’t hide his beaming smile, a shy Tasha attempted to hide her face from the camera as they enjoyed one last night together before heading home. 

On Tuesday night, the Love Island cast were finally reunited with their phones after bidding farewell to the villa they’d called home for the past eight weeks.

Finalist Dami Hope took to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday evening and revealed his phone had been returned to him as he and the rest of the finalists were staying in a nearby villa.

The Dubliner was joined on his Stories by winners Ekin-Su and Davide as they greeted their new fans. 

Dami then shared an Instagram Live of himself walking around the grounds of the villa where he said most of the islanders were being ‘anti-social’.

However, he did manage to get Tasha Ghouri to appear on camera as she waved to his followers while lying in bed.

Meanwhile, Andrew hosted a quick Instagram Live from the same villa where he was joined by Dami and runner up Luca.

The boys laughed and joked around as they watched Davide and Ekin-Su getting interviewed in the garden of the villa.

Ekin-Su and Davide were crowned the winners of Love Island 2022 on Monday night, and voting figures have revealed they secured more than half of the public vote.

Across Sunday and Monday, viewers were able to vote for their favourite couple to be crowned as winners and go home with the £50,000 cash prize – which for the first time ever wasn’t offered as a ‘split or steal’ deal.

And final voting figures released by ITV have revealed that fan favourites Ekin-Su and Davide, both 27, secured a staggering 63.69 per cent of the public vote.

They won the ITV2 dating contest by a landslide as runners-up Gemma and Luca secured just 14.47 per cent of the viewers’ final votes.

Gemma and Luca followed behind as runners-up, while Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope came in third place and Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page were fourth.

And after Ekin-Su and Davide’s landslide victory, the Essex-based actress has already been tipped to become the show’s highest earner in history.

She has already scooped £25,000 in prize money, and a source has told MailOnline she’s already being inundated with lucrative offers, meaning she could surpass multi-millionaire Molly-Mae Hague, 23, who was runner-up on the 2019 series, to become the show’s richest ever star.

Ekin-Su, who entered the villa on the third day as a bombshell, has already had a taste of the spotlight, having starred in Turkish soap operas and reality shows before entering the Love Island villa, and the brunette is now set to cash in with an estimated £1 million payday.

A source close to Ekin-Su told MailOnline: ‘We’ve never seen the likes of the deals that are already coming through the door. It’s not just your typical reality TV fodder. 

‘She’s absolutely inundated with lucrative offers from brands and they’re prepared to pay big money to get her onboard. She’s going to be the new Molly-Mae Hague!’
