The aftermath of Love Island is usually a rollercoaster and 2022's edition has been no different.

Despite the fact, it's been just a month since the reunion, things have been heating up off-screen as the contestants adjust to their lives, and new found fame outside of the villa.

From Ekin-Su and David, to Gemma Owen and Luca Bish, fans are dying to know what the 2022 islander’s have been up to.

From securing lucrative million euro brand deals, to breakups, and those Davide cheating rumours.

Here’s the latest from 2022’s Love Islander’s.

Ekin-Su addresses online cheating rumours surrounding Davide

Love Island Season 8 winners Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti had a whirlwind romance inside the Love Island villa.

The couple faced plenty of highs and lows during their time on the show, with Davide telling Ekin-Su "You're a liar, actress! Go the f**k out" in the middle of one of their clashes.

Since leaving the show, the couple have made trips to Manchester, and have had date nights and gym sessions together in London.

The pair have been met with several TV offers and brand deals since exiting the show, and have been subject to cheating rumours circulating online.


Ekin-Su and Davide announced on Channel 4 ’s The Big Breakfast that they will star in their own travel and cooking show.

It comes after fans of the couple made a plea to see more of the pair and their antics.

The upcoming project with ITV2 will see the smitten pair travel to Italy and Turkey to meet each other’s families and explore their cultures.

Ekin-Su told Lorraine presenter Christine Lampard on Monday: “We love food, so it’s like a week in Turkey and then a week in Italy."

"So, in Turkey it will be like meeting the family, Davide meets my family, perhaps cooks traditional Turkish food for them and I rate them and see how it is and then we kind of tour Istanbul where I’m from, and I do a week in Italy.

It hasn’t all been sunshine and daisies, as last week Davide was spotted in a taxi with two mystery ladies and a male friend.

Social media went berserk with worry after a viral video emerged of Davide getting into a cab with two women after KSI's fight in London.

Ekin-Su happened to be away shooting for the brand Oh Polly in Los Angeles.

It is reportedly the biggest Love Island brand deal in history when she confirmed her £1million endorsement with Oh Polly.

Ekin-Su immediately addressed the "cheating" speculations to bed once and for all, insisting she "trusts" her boyfriend and knows Davide would never cheat on her.

Commenting on the video and cheating rumours, Ekin-Su told “I mean those videos, we know it’s not true because I was talking to him the whole night.”

“You know the relationship is between me and him and people like to talk,” she continued.

“The truth behind that is it wasn’t just him, it was a big group, and it just happened to be two girls in a taxi with him and his friend and it just looked wrong, that's all it was.”

“And you know I trust him, he didn’t cheat, and he’s my man,” Ekin-Su added.

In footage obtained by The Sun, Davide was joined by Anita Gunnarsdottir and Matthildur Ylfa Þorsteinsd - who sat next to him during the fight.

He was reportedly spotted chatting and laughing with the duo as they departed the venue before sharing a cab together.

The Italian hunk shared a photo from the night, in his first social media post since him leaving in a taxi with the girls.

Fans also took to TikTok to share a video of Davide as he stands with the two girls along with a larger group of people.

She captioned the video: “I took these coming from the ksi fight. tbf there were more girls than guys (like 2 or 3 guys and 5 girls), but they got a taxi that could only fit 4 so the others got another.”

Ekin-Su has been very busy, and was in Dublin at the opening of BPerfect Cosmetics new superstore in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre.

The fiery Love Island winner also made an appearance on RTÉ’s Late Late show, where she was interviewed by Ryan Tubridy.

On Monday morning, Ekin-Su, 28, and Davide, 27, joined Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on the This Morning couch to talk about how they fell for one another, their future plans as a couple, and Davide's recent taxi antics.

Philip Schofield grilled Davide about the taxi rumour, and Davide said: "You know what, I laughed it off actually,"

While Ekin admitted that at first, she was rather taken aback as friends, family, and fans bombarded her with messages and screenshots of the mysterious snaps.

Davide is also reportedly the first male islander from this series to have landed a huge brand deal after it was reported that he signed a six-figure deal with online fashion retailer boohooMAN.

Gemma and Luca make things official

Gemma Owen, has her own swimwear line, OG Beachwear, and is said to have been offered several brand deals since leaving the villa.

Following in the footsteps of Molly-Mae Hague, Gemma has been named as the new ambassador for PrettyLittleThing.

Gemma is riding the wave of her new-found fame and has just signed a very lucrative six-figure deal with fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing.

Gemma said: "I wore PrettyLittleThing throughout my time on the show and now being announced as one of their newest ambassadors alongside some incredible talent including Love Island alumni is really special."

During their time on Love Island, Gemma insisted she wanted the approval of her family before taking the next step and making their relationship official.

Luca finally got the seal of approval from Gemma’s football famous dad Michael Owen after joining them on a family holiday.

He's also announced a YouTube channel called 'The Bish n Chips Show'!.

After getting the seal of approval from Gemma’s family, Luca and Gemma finally made things official.

In a video posted on Instagram, Luca led Gemma through a corridor lined with red roses, candles, red balloons and rose petals to a swimming pool in which the words "Be my girlfriend" floated.

Commenting on the gesture, Gemma took to Instagram, and wrote: "Finally official. Thank you @lucabish for such a special night!"

The couple's Love Island co-stars were among those sending messages on social media including Ikenna Ekwonna who said "Finally" while Andrew Le Page wrote: "About time".

Gemma created speculation recently after a visit to Paramount studios.

The 19 year old shared a picture at the reception of Paramount studios and fans think it's a clue as to what Gemma and boyfriend Luca Bish's could get up to next.

According to The Sun, one clever fan wrote on a forum: "I’m guessing it’s The Challenge. From MTV. Paramount owns it now and Love island USA people are on it. I think they keep saying this season they are competing for an international Season or something like that."

Danica splits with Jamie and is photographed kissing another man

Danica, who is a dancer from Leicester, struggled to find love on Love Island season eight.

The island was coupled up with Jamie during the final weeks of the competition and they missed out on the final.

Danica Taylor and Jamie Allen have reportedly become the first couple from the 2022 series to split.


The pair are said to have broken up after Danica, 21, was pictured kissing Towie’s Roman Hackett, 20, on Saturday even though she was thought to be in a relationship with 27-year-old footballer Jamie at the time.

Danica was seen kissing Roman, who's starring on the current series of TOWIE, on Saturday morning after he dropped her off at a train station.

An inside source told MailOnline: “Danica and Jamie have gone their separate ways.

“They were yet to make their relationship official but have decided that they didn't quite work together romantically.”

The source added: “Jamie has just signed for a new football team and Danica is busy pursuing endless opportunities after leaving the Love Island villa and they sadly drifted apart.”

Jamie announced on Instagram that he has signed with football team AFC Telford United.

Senior microbiologist Dami Hope, 26, left the villa with girlfriend Indiyah Polack, 23, the couple placed third runner up in the final.

During the latest series, Dami and Indiyah had a bumpy ride, they pair chose to recouple with Summer and Deji at the end of Casa Amor.

Dami shocked viewers with his antics, sharing both a three-way kiss and a bed with Summer on the very first night.

He swiftly lost a lot of his popularity with fans for his behaviour throughout the series despite him and Indiyah rekindling things.


Both returned to the main villa with Summer and Deji, and eventually made their way back to one another.

Since leaving the villa, Indiyah and Dami have attended several events and been busy.

In an interview with The Sundayworld, Dami revealed he had moved to London, and that himself and Indiyah would start looking for somewhere to live, Dami said: "We are planning on moving in together in September, so things are going along great. We are so busy right now that we haven't had time to look for a place together, but we are definitely going to start looking soon because things are going great between us.

Dami added: "I am making the transition to move to England now. I'll always be an Irish boy and I say that to anyone who asks, but there are doors opening for me in England now. I will never forget my roots.”

Indiyah secured a beauty deal with Boots UK as the brand's ambassador, and announced the news on Instagram.

The islander shared photos of her signing her contract at Boots' HQ in Covent Garden, in London, and said that she was "insanely excited".

She wrote: "You guys know beauty is a huge passion and obsession of mine, so becoming a beauty ambassador for Boots is a dream come true."

Indiyah added: "None of this would be possible without all of your love and support, nothing goes unnoticed and I love you all so much!!

"Can’t wait to get to work on this and share more with you over the next few months.

The star also signed a six figure deal with PLT, and shared that she has become the first ambassador for PrettyLittleThing's Marketplace.

Commenting on the news, she wrote: "I can finally tell you what we've been working on for so long!!

Tasha and Andrew are thriving

Love Island lovebirds Tasha and Andrew had a rocky start in the villa, especially after Casa Amor.

The pair became the first couple on Love Island 2022 to make their romance official and have even got matching tattoos since.

Things have been moving fast for the 24-year-old islander.

Tasha has just landed a huge fashion brand deal with eBay UK.

Commenting on the news, Tasha took to social media on her birthday, and said: Tasha wrote: "A BIRTHDAY GIFT TO LAST A LIFETIME. I am over the moon to announce I am @ebay_uk first ever pre-loved ambassador”

Last month, fans noticed Andrew had appeared to unfollow Jacques O'Neill on Instagram, the Mirror UK reported.

Jacques and Andrew don’t follow each other on the social media app.

It comes as Tasha Ghouri unfollowed Jacques after islander Remi’s post alleging bullying allegations against Jacques, and after Tasha saw a leaked video of Jacques mocking Tasha.


In the statement, Remi described how Jacques made fun of his looks and his voice while Luca egged him on.

One Twitter user responded and said: “Andrew unfollowed Jacques. We stan a supportive boyfriend. #loveisland”

While a second said: “Andrew and Tasha both unfollowed Jacques!! we love an unproblematic couple”

After leaving the villa, Tasha revealed that she moved her boyfriend Andrew Le Page into her London flat after they exited Love Island.

Andrew has been very supportive of Tasha.

In a Q&A video on Tasha's YouTube page, Andrew admitted he was going to complete a British Sign Language (BSL). He said: "It's definitely something I definitely wanna learn. I know it means a lot to Tash and it would be a pretty cool skill to have."

Paige and Adam fuelling speculation the pair on the rocks

Former paramedic Paige Thorne, 24, and two-time islander Adam Collard came fifth in the final.

The couple have been subject to predictions by fans as the next couple to split over spending time apart, and cryptic social media posts.

Paige recently admitted she initially needed some persuasion to get to know Adam Collard.

Talking to Fubar Radio, Paige said she was initially put off talking to Adam by some of the things the other girls in the villa had said about him, Digital Spy reports.

Paige has already taken Adam home to meet her family (Instagram)

Paige said producers convinced her to give Adam a chance, she added: "I got pulled aside and they were like, 'Paige, why are you already writing him off before you've had a chance?'

She added: “I was like, because of what the girls have been saying. I don't need to have a chat with him to know there's not going to be a difference, and they were like no, be open-minded, and just talk to him and give him a chance.”

Paige had a bit of a rocky journey in the villa, and was initially paired with Luca (who ended up with Gemma Owen), and was coupled up with Jacques O'Neill, until his flirting with other girls in Casa Amor led to trouble between the pair and then Jacques quit the show, shortly after Adam expressed his interest in Paige.

Paige then went on to pursue a romance with Adam.

Many fans have been predicting that the pair would be the next to split after they appeared to spend some time apart.

Despite the predictions, the pair stepped out together putting on a united display, as they made an appearance at the In The Style pop up shop in Manchester.

It’s alleged that hasn’t spoken to her former flame Jacques since she returned to the UK.

At the Love Island wrap party, islander Antigoni revealed the update to The Sun at the show's wrap party, which Paige was also a guest at, Antigoni said: “I saw Paige last night, and they've not spoken, no.”
