So, while we count down the days until launch night, let’s take a look back at some of the couples from previous series’ who are still going strong after all these years.
Surprisingly, given the show’s credentials as the ultimate match-making experience, there aren’t as many as you might think…

Alex Bowen, 30, and Olivia Buckland, 28, met and fell in love on the summer 2016 series of the show, and have been joined at the hip ever since
While the couple came in second place, losing out to fan favourites Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde, they’re absolutely winning when it comes to their romance.
Just a year after leaving the villa, a smitten Alex popped the question on New Year’s Eve.
The couple tied the knot in mid-September 2018 during a lavish ceremony at Gosfield Hall in Essex.

Nathan Massey, 29, and Cara De La Hoyde, 30, won the 2016 series of the show but it wasnt exactly smooth sailing for the pair after they left.
Despite moving in together just months after leaving the villa, the couple called time on their relationship in April 2017.
Just one month later, former circus performer Cara announced her shock pregnancy – but said that Nathan was fully supportive and would be there every step of the way.
The couple reunited soon after their son Feddie-George was born in December 2017, and tied the knot almost two years later on Friday, June, 28, 2019.
Nathan and Cara and welcomed their second child, daughter Delilah, in July 2020.
Despite being busy parents, that certainly hasn’t hindered their bedroom antics – as the pair recently revealed their top tips to boost your sex life during lockdown.

Lovebirds Camilla, 31, and Jamie, 30, finished off in second place on the 2017 series of the show.
But that doesn’t mean they’re not stronger than ever – in fact, they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Nell Sophia, in October 2020.
And yesterday announced they’d welcomed second daughter Nora.
While Camilla, who previously snogged Prince Harry, had admitted their relationship is “tricky” and “complex” at times, the couple are well and truly smitten.

Jessica Shears, 27, and Dominic Lever, 30, hit it off in the villa in 2017 were the first contestants to have sex in the hideaway.
Sadly, their romance was cut short when Jess was eliminated before her beau.
But since Dom left the show, the lovebirds have been inseparable and they even got engaged just three months later.
The couple’s first wedding came on Good Morning Britain in a bizarre ceremony overseen by Jeremy Kyle on Valentin’e Day 2018 where they were ‘married’ by Richard Arnold.
However, the reality TV stars had a proper wedding months later in October at a stunning ceremony on the Greek Island of Mykonos.
Jess and Dom welcomed their first child, a son, in September 2019 and live in a stunning family home in Devon.

Tommy, 22, and Molly, 22, coupled up in the second week of the show after a hilarious love triangle involving Maura Higgins.
And the pair quickly stole viewers’ hearts too as we watched their romance unfold – and they soon declared their love for one another.
After leaving the villa, the couple proved they were serious about their relationship, and moved into a swanky flat in Manchester.
Tommy has proven to be a real romantic and lavished Molly with plenty of gifts, including a puppy imported from Russia which sadly later died.
When he surprised her with a new year’s eve trip to New York, we were all convinced he was going to pop the question. He didn’t – but surely an engagement can’t be far off?
