The Love Island 2019 finale saw Greg O'Shea take home the winners title, and a handy £25k - his half of the prize shared with fellow winner Amber Gill. 

The 24-year-old 7's player entered the Majorcan villa just under two weeks ago and said: "I never thought this was going to happen at any stage...I wasn't here two weeks ago!

"I just want to say thanks to everyone, go raibh mile maith agat to all the Irish fans, and English fans."
