Love Island viewers are all saying the same thing after controversial final results

Love Island viewers are all saying the same thing after controversial final results

The All Star ITV2 dating series came to an end last night after five weeks

After five chaos-causing, lip-locking, plot-twisting, insult-hurling weeks, the first ever series of Love Island: All Stars has sadly come to an end.

During last night's grand finale, much-loved presenter Maya Jama revealed which of the five favourite couples had been voted the winners by the public.

Battling it out for the top spot were returning Love Island stars Georgia Harrison and Anton Danyluk, Georgia Steele and Toby Aromolaran, Sophie Piper and Joshua Ritchie, Jess Gale and Callum Jones, and Molly Smith and Tom Clare.

The 10 finalists - as well as the 16 'dumped' islanders who'd taken part in the big-name series - flocked down to the pool for the big moment.

First up came the announcement of who'd placed in fifth - 2017 favourite Georgia H and her 2019 beau, Scottish bodybuilder Anton.

Next up came controversial couple, Georgia S - from the 2018 series - and Toby, who famously met long-term girlfriend Chloe Burrows on the show back in 2021.

Landing in third place were 2020 'winter series' beauty Sophie and her cheeky northern chappy Joshua, all the way from the debut season in 2015.

Five couples made it to the Love Island: All Stars final.

When it came down to announcing the winning duo, viewers were left perched on the edge of their seats, being that Molly and Callum - who were in opposing couples - previously dated for three years, after meeting on the show in 2020.

The exes - who called time on their romance last summer - both entered the villa as 'bombshells' in the first episode, unaware each other would be appearing.

Since then, whilst half the nation were seemingly praying for the couple to rekindle their romance - with their chemistry viable through the screen - others hoped that recoupling with other contestants might help them to move on.

Callum enjoyed brief 'flings' on the hit ITV2 dating show with the likes of Georgia S and Arabella Chi before settling down with his former 2020 co-star Jess Gale.

Molly, meanwhile, quickly felt a connection with footballer Tom, who appeared on last year's 'winter series'.

Molly Smith went head-to-head with ex Callum Jones in the final.

So, you can only imagine viewers' shock when the Molly and Callum were forced to go head-to-head in the grand finale.

And by the look of the outcome, luck was undoubtedly in the favour of blonde beauty Molly and her sportsman beau Tom, who were crowned the 'King and Queen' of the plush South African love-shack and handed the £50k cash prize.

Despite thousands of viewers being overjoyed for the winning couple, others aren't best pleased with the result, with some even implying that fan-favourite Molly was able to bag the win on her own, accusing Tom is 'riding her coattails' to the final.

"congrats to molly smith becoming the 2nd person to win the show on her own! #Loveisland," one penned.

And if you're confused by which other couple the user was alluding to, a subsequent comment confirmed it was 2019 winners Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea.

Some viewers have joked that Molly won the show on her own.

For those who need reminding, Amber was one of that year's favourite contestants, having her heart repeatedly broken in the villa until Irish rugby star Greg walked in just three days before the final and won her over, with the two going on to be crowned the winners.

"Honestly... Amber and Greg 2.0!" another viewer tweeted last night following the final.

Gushing over widely-adored star Molly, another wrote: "Hopefully this sends the message loud and clear being nice person and not being sneaky, dishonest and self absorbed is the way to win, (in life) as well as Love Island!"

Sharing a clip of Tom's winning statement, another jibed: "'I'm just buzzing to be here with Mol'....wouldn't be in final without her captain boring"

Viewers compared Molly and Tom's win to Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea's back in 2019, claiming both ladies won the show without the help of their partners.

"Jessica Hayes, Amber Gill, and Molly Smith - women who CARRIED their Love Island season and won the show on their own, with a boy riding on their coat-tails," another wrote.

A sixth viewer continued to joke: "Tom waking up to realise that Molly has carried him to the final and he’s won".

Awkward... anyway, go Mol!
