Social worker Sanam became the first Casa Amor contestant to win the show, having entered the villa as a bombshell last month.

The 24-year-old thanked fans for their support in an Instagram post on Thursday, saying she feels "blessed and overwhelmed with positive emotions".

She added: "Love Island has been a beautiful experience for me and I'm so proud of say I've left with someone I love, admire, look up to, connect with on a deeper level and absolutely value and appreciate everything he stands for.

"I'm so excited to continue our journey on the outside and can't wait for us to become so much more."

PE and science teacher Kai, also 24, said was "so grateful" to be walking away with a "humble, intelligent, caring, loving" partner.

"It's still not sunk in and don't think it will for a while," he added. "I'm honestly so excited to start this journey on the outside with her my real-life Disney princess."
