As the Winter Love Island finale approaches, Daily Star takes a look at where former finalists are now.

Paige Turley and Finn Tapp

Paige Turley and Finn Tapp took the Winter Love Island crown in 2020, when they became the first winning couple of the spin-off series.

The loved-up couple soon moved into a flat in Manchester, with Finn teasing to Daily Star at the time that a proposal could be on the cards in the future.

He said: "Marriage is definitely something we want to do and I guess it's just down to me now to pull my finger out."

The couple have also gushed about each other on social media, with Finn paying tribute to Paige as he celebrated their year anniversary together.

He took to Instagram to say: "What a year it’s been with this incredible woman. I have had the time of my life these past 12 months and I wouldn't change a thing."

However, Paige had to address rumours in 2022 that the couple had split, after the pair were spotted spending time apart during Easter.

The star shared an article about their relationship on Instagram, confirming they were as loved-up as ever and were still a couple, as she addressed rumours of a split.

Paige captioned the post: "Guys, now I've seen a lot of articles but that one has got to be up there…EASTER APART?! The actual toxicness that we can't spend a week apart, he's had two f*****g years of me, give the guy a break!"

Siannise Fudge and Luke Trotman

Siannise Fudge and Luke Trotman came runner-up on the 2020 series, and it appeared that the couple were as loved up as ever outside the villa too.

The Daily Star reported that the couple moved in together at a luxurious flat in South West London, along with their adorable dog Nala.

Taking to Instagram to share their excitement about moving in together, Siannise wrote: "We did it! Today myself and @luketroytrotman moved into our apartment and we love it.

"I feel so overwhelmed, this is something I have always wanted and it reminds me of how far we have both come. I'm excited for our next chapter in London and going on lots of adventures with my best friend, I love you."

That's not all, as the pair also collaborated on a clothing range together in 2021, which was released by the company Conqr, and started a YouTube channel together.

However, Siannise and Luke split at the end of 2021 after more than 15 months together.

A source told The Sun at the time: "It's been a really hard couple of weeks for both of them but it's over for now."

Addressing the split from Luke, Siannise took to her Instagram to answer questions from her followers during a Q&A, saying: "I am very much single."

She added: "No I don’t have a new boyfriend & I’m currently not dating."

The Sun also reported that Siannise looks after the former couple's dog Nala.

One year later, influencer Luke became engaged to Australian born beauty Chelsea Menna, with a source telling The Mail Online: "It was love at first sight with Luke and Chelsea.

"Their romance blossomed overnight into a serious relationship and although it's not been long, they both know they're the one for each other."

Meanwhile, brunette beauty Siannise has since gone Instagram official with a new boyfriend, according to reports from OK! Magazine.

Demi Jones and Luke Mabbott

Demi Jones found romance with Luke Mabbott in the villa, after initially being coupled with Nad Majeed.

However, their romance was not to last and the couple soon split up once the series was over, with a source telling The Sun: "It's no huge drama – they're just better off as friends. They had a good run but they have split for good."

The source added: "There’s been no cheating or drama they just drifted apart – he’s looking forward to lockdown being over and making the most of his new single status."

However, Luke soon began dating surfer Lucie Donlan, who herself appeared on a separate Love Island series.

The Mirror reported that Demi claimed in a tell-all YouTube video that Luke had cheated on her with Lucie, saying: "All of a sudden, he rang me out of the blue and was like 'I need to end it, I need to end it now.' It was quite sudden which I was quite taken aback by, and it then all came out in the press very quickly.

"Very shortly after, I actually received some photos via my DM from a fan that had spotted Luke and Lucie in Cornwall together. I actually never told Luke this because I didn't want beef but I saw it and this was literally less than two weeks after the public breakup."

She added: "I went through all of Lucie's profile to see if there was anything on there that might see that they're together.

"I noticed all these cryptic captions with loads of 'shhh' emojis and about getting butterflies and secret eyes. I put two and two together. Obviously they must have started talking during lockdown."

However Luke has hit back at the claims, after he and Lucie were slammed by internet trolls, with The Sun reporting that Lucie said she was "very upset" and called Demi's video "totally unnecessary and uncalled for."

Luke also took to his Instagram stories, saying: "Me and Demi split up on 29 May. Lucie checked with me a couple of days or a week after to see if I was single.

"We went on a date 17 June and then we started going out in July. It’d just like to squish it now – get it over and done with.

"I hope everyone can get on with their lives because me and Lucie have never been happier."

Jess Gale and Ched Uzor

Blonde bombshells Jess and Eve Gale entered Winter Love Island together, but sadly sister Eve was sent home from the villa early during their stint.

Meanwhile, Jess found romance with fellow islander Ched Uzor and their relationship continued to blossom for a short time outside of the villa.

However, the couple decided to part ways not long afterwards, with a statement confirming the break-up.

It read: "After a whirlwind romance in the Love Island villa, unfortunately, Jessica Gale and Ched Uzor have made the mutual decision to split.

"They have unfortunately felt the effects of lockdown separation but will continue as friends."

Jess later addressed their split in her own statement on Instagram, saying: "To confirm myself and Ched have split, we are still good friends and I wish him all the best. Thanks for all the support you have given us since the villa."

Ched later re-posted the statement to his own story.

The spokesperson for the duo added they both have nothing but good wishes and happiness for the future for each other.
