How Liam And Millie Made Love Island History

We finally have our evenings back! Love Island drew to a close yesterday, with Millie Court and Liam Reardon being crowned winners of season seven.

The pair beat Toby Aromolaran and Chloe Burrows (who went official last night, bless!) to the crown, choosing to split the £50,000 prize money and stay together as official boyfriend and girlfriend.

While ‘Milliam’ were well-loved amongst fans (despite the pair having been through some very bumpy times in the villa), and were worthy winners in their own right, their win marks a Love Island first.

Yep, Millie and Liam made villa history when they took the top prize, as they are the first ever Love Island couple to win the show with both parties having entered the villa after Day One.

Since the show started in 2015, each winning couple has included at least one OG Islander – see last year’s winners Paige Turley and Finley Tapp, or season five’s Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea.

Three of our winning Love Island couples have been purely of originals, such as season two’s Cara Delahoyde and Nathan Massey, season three’s Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies, and season four’s Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham.

This year’s winners Liam graced the villa with his presence on Day 4 alongside fellow bombshell Chuggs, while Millie entered the programme on Day Eight with Lucinda Strafford.

While Millie and Liam are likely to have a number of endorsements and other deals likely to make them loaded, it seems that it’s Liberty Poole who will actually be this year’s biggest earner.

The only Islander from this year’s series to hit over one million subscribers on Instagram, Liberty is reportedly set to earn up to an eye-watering £24,000 per sponsored post.

Liberty chose to quit the villa just before the final after breaking up with boyfriend Jake Cornish.

But who needs love when you’re earning this much money?

Love Island is available to watch on the ITV Hub and BritBox.
