Which Love Island 2023 couples are still together and who has split?

Love Island 2023 may have only ended in March, but many couples from the second winter series have already announced their split. The popular ITV2 dating show, which saw Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan win, was a pretty dramatic one with Casa Amor recouplings and brutal dumpings.

However, series nine — which was filmed in South Africa with Maya Jama at the helm — has also proved successful, with some of this year's contestants forming strong bonds that have lasted outside the famous villa. But where are the couples now?

From moving in, to romantic trips to Wales and loved-up social media snaps, there have been lots of updates from the Love Island 2023 finalists and contestants.

The sad news was confirmed by Tom who told his Instagram followers: "I didn't think I'd be writing this but me and Samie have gone our separate ways... We are still on good terms and I have nothing but love and respect for her. I'm gutted it's come to an end but I truly wish Samie the best."

It comes after a source told The Sun: "Samie and Tom have sadly decided to call it a day. There is a lot of love and respect there but it just wasn’t going anywhere. The distance between them was too much and they are both really focused on their careers post Love Island."

If that’s even possible."

She regularly features on Will's famous TikTok tending to the animals, including pigs and lambs. Jessie will be jetting back to Australia soon but hopes her boyfriend will join her.

She told her Instagram followers: "I am looking to go back to Australia at the end of May because I think that's when my visa is until. Will might be coming with me, which is really exciting, and then we're going to look at what other types of visas I can have when I get back over here. I do see myself long-term in the UK, if Will doesn't enjoy Australia too much."
