Which Love Island season 3 couples have stood the test of time?


Every summer the Love Island villa churns out a bunch of smitten couples ready to take on the outside world after two months living in the secluded paradise of the reality show.

Sadly, the large majority of lovers from the villa don’t last THAT long when it comes to making it work in real life. But how did the pairs from Love Island season 3 fare?

What happened to the Love Island winners’ relationship? Where are the season 3 contestants now? And which ex Islanders are still in love?

Curly haired barber from Essex Kem and musical theatre fanatic from Wales Amber were the winners of the Love Island season 3 series.

Splitting the £50,000 prize money between them, the victorious couple seemingly had a beautiful relationship ahead.

Alas, just six months after leaving the Love Island villa, they announced their split.

Two years on and Kem is now a TV presenting regular while Amber is living her dream of performing in the West End in Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 The Musical.

Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood

Possibly the most turbulent couple of Love Island season 3, grid girl Olivia and farm boy Chris had their fair share of explosive arguments in the Love Island villa before finally confessing their love to one another while sipping fizz on a luxury yacht.

After finishing in third place, the argumentative pair moved in together, documenting the big step on their spin off show, Chris and Olivia: Crackin’ On.

However, things turned south during filming for the ITVBe programme, with the pair splitting after a string of whopping on-screen rows.

Equine fanatic Chris has since landed various gigs commentating on the racing at Ascot and the Cheltenham Festival.

He’s also besotted with new girlfriend, Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson.

Olivia rekindled her romance with ex boyfriend, Bradley Dack, and has now moved to Manchester to live with her football star bae.

There’s not much to say about these two. It was lust at first sight, they coupled up and cracked on.

They split soon after season 3 drew to a close, and Jonny is now engaged to model, Danielle Zarb-Cousin.

Meanwhile, Tyla recently gave birth to her first son, Archie, although she split from the little one’s father, boyfriend Rosco Edmonds, seven months after the child arrived.

After getting off to a rough start in the Love Island season 3 villa, explosive ordnance disposal expert Camilla’s prince charming swooped in the form of rugged hunk, Jamie Jewitt.

The Scottish charity worker was mugged off by her first flame Johnny for new girl Tyla after a few clashes, including a heated debate about feminism.

It all turned out okay for Cam though, when Jamie whipped her up an epic avocado on toast brunch on her birthday.

Gabby Allen and Marcel Somerville

Scouse fitness pro Gabby’s romance with former Blazin’ Squad star seemed promising at the start.

They were totes smitten in the Love Island season 3 villa and music producer Marc’ was the go-to man for words of wisdom surrounding everything lurve- he even released his own book of advice, titled Dr. Marcel’s Little Book of Big Love.

Despite the sweet beginning, the couple split in 2018 after it emerged Marcel cheated on Gabby while they were on holiday together in Mexico.

Montana Brown and Alex Beattie

When model Alex appeared in the villa during the Casa Amor challenge, he hit it off with then-economics student Montana.

Following a steamy night together in the hideaway and finishing in fifth place, their fleeting summer of love came to an end, sharpish.

Alex and Montana reportedly split just days after leaving the villa. Awks.

Montana went on to become a stunning Instagram babe with millions of followers while Alex did the obligatory tour of UK nightclubs with a stint of public appearance gigs.
