Love Island winners Paige and Finn only JUST beat Siannise and Luke T (by less than per cent)

UK News

Love Island fans were left stunned when the show-favourites took second place in series six at the end of last month.

And now, voting statistics have revealed that winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp received 44.52 per cent of the votes – not even 1 per cent more than the show’s runners-up Siânnise Fudge and Luke Trotman, who received a 43.61 per cent share.

The stats also revealed that, Luke Mabbott and Demi Jones came in third with just 9.62 per cent – a surprisingly low amount for such huge characters in the series, while fourth placed couple Ched Uzor and Jess Gale received only 2.25 per cent.

Love Island viewers took to Twitter in droves to express their outrage at Siânnise and Luke T missing out on the top prize.

Despite being the bookies’ favourites to take the title at the conclusion of the ITV2 show’s first ever winter season, fans were shocked when Paige and Finn – themselves another popular couple – were crowned the winners instead. 

Coral bookmakers had Siânnise and Luke T tipped as the overwhelming favourites to take the top prize during the final with odds of 1-4. 

Finley and Paige were the second favourites at 11-4, with Luke M and Demi 14-1 to win and Ched and Jess 40-1.

Siânnise’s journey on Love Island saw her go from being one of the show’s least popular contestants – when she rebuffed Nas Majeed’s romantic overtures – to becoming one of the most adored.

Following a bumpy start, where Siânnise struggled to secure herself a love interest, she went on to have fans rooting for her as her relationship with Luke T went from strength to strength, even while he was coupled with Rebecca Gormley.

Once the pair finally got together, they were seen sharing their mutual interest in Disney films and pining for one another amid the temptations of Casa Amor week.

As the season came to a close, they made things official when Luke asked Siânnise to be his girlfriend. They also expressed their love for one another.

Paige and Finn looked delighted to be announced the winning duo – despite fans and bookies gunning for Luke T and Siânnise to take home the win.

Gobsmacked Finn declared, ‘How the f**k have I blagged that?’, after host Laura Whitmore announced them as the series champions.

They then each selected an envelope – with Paige taking the one with the £50k prize in it. She chose to split it with Finn, who declared that it was going towards a flat in Manchester for them both, having already discussed moving in together.

WINNERS: Paige Turley, 22, and Finley Tapp, 20

Paige’s start on the show was far from smooth as she was left single when land owner Ollie Williams, 23, departed the show prematurely in a bid to rekindle his relationship with his ex Laura Nofer.

The 22-year-old singer’s luck soon changed for the better as she was asked on a date with Finn when he came in as a late arrival with Connagh Howard.

Sparks soon flew between the pair, with the couple’s romance remaining relatively solid during their stint.

However, earlier in the series, their relationship was rocked when Paige was accused of ‘double standards’ as she snapped at her partner for laughing on his date with Demi, 21.

Love Island received 390 Ofcom complaints after the News Splash Challenge, which sees the group given partial tabloid headlines about each other before guessing who they are referring to, caused heartbreak for the pair.

Many accused the show of intentionally baiting the Islanders after one headline suggested Finley had been tempted to stray during a short stay in Casa Amor, prompting inevitable outrage from villa girlfriend Paige. 

Despite the drama, musician Paige was over the moon when Finn became the first hopeful to ask her to be his girlfriend. 

RUNNERS UP: Siânnise Fudge, 25, and Luke Trotman, 22

The rocky beginning of Siannise’s journey saw her couple up with Nas Majeed, who she failed to strike up a romantic connection with. 

Keen to find a partner, the beauty advisor, 25, set her sights on late arrival, model Connagh, but was left heartbroken after he revealed he was more interested in Sophie Piper and Rebecca Gormley.

Siannise found herself battling for Luke T’s affections as soon as he entered the villa,  but was met with friction from beauty queen Rebecca, 21, who also liked the sportsman, 22.

Sharing his feelings for Siannise, Luke T admitted he’d dump Rebecca for the beauty consultant.

The pair became the villa’s second official couple last week when the footballer sent her on a fairy tale-themed quest before popping the question.

The brunette wiped back tears as she told her man she would ‘100 per cent’ be his girlfriend, after he said he wanted to prove his commitment on the outside.

THIRD PLACE: Luke Mabbott, 24, and Demi Jones, 21

Luke M and Demi’s relationship came as a surprise to many, after their failed romances with Natalia Zoppa and Nas Majeed respectively.

Viewers turned on sports science graduate Nas, 22, as he left Demi, 21, ‘genuinely gutted’ by recoupling with Casa Amor’s Eva Zapico.

While Luke M’s relationship with Natalia seemed promising after calling it quits from Jess, but the Justin Bieber-lookalike was left disappointed when the Manchester beauty admitted she failed to see a future with him.

As Luke M, 24, and Demi’s relationship blossomed, Shaughna Phillips shocked the villa as she developed feelings for the hunk.  However, the Redcar native’s feelings for the style advisor as he decided to couple up with her instead of democratic service officer Shaughna, 25.

FOURTH PLACE: Jess Gale, 20, and Ched Uzor, 23

The VIP hostess, 20, quickly set her sights on Mike Boateng, who had embarked on a relationship with Leanne Amaning.

After he was left single from being dumped by customer service advisor Leanne, 22, the ex-police officer didn’t waste time in attempting to reignite a romance with Jess, who was coupled up with Luke M.

While their rekindled romance seemed promising, Casa Amor saw Mike pursue Priscilla Anyabu, while the blonde flirted up a storm with Ched. 

Jess and Mike marked the end of their on-off fling when he returned to the villa with model Priscilla, 25, with the student fully focusing her attention on scaffolder Ched, 23.

Ahead of the final, the pair decided to label themselves ‘exclusive’.

Jess admitted she needs her sister’s approval of their relationship before she can be his girlfriend – but her twin Eve came into the villa during the friends and family episode and seemed more than happy with her sister’s choice.
