Dani and Jack were then faced with the ultimate test of love and loyalty – whether to split and share the prize money or keep it for themselves. But the happy couple chose to split the jackpot, bagging £25,000 each, after Jack was given the decision to steal or keep the money. Vows: Dani and Jack embraced after declaring their love at the Summer Ball (ITV) Laura Anderson and Paul Knops finished in second place, Kazimir Crossley and Josh Denzel took third and Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson finished fourth. Barmaid Dani, daughter of EastEnders actor Danny Dyer, coupled up with Jack on the launch night eight weeks ago when she stepped forward for him as he entered.  Shortly after news of their triumph was announced, Dani’s father posted a short online clip congratulating her on the win.

Socialite and hotel heir Paris Hilton was among them, tweeting: “Congrats @Dani-MasDyer & @Jack-Charlesf on winning @LoveIsland you both deserve it!” Paul Chuckle, one half of the Chuckle brothers, had surprised fans earlier in the series by announcing he was a fan. After the final, he said: “Obvious winners @Dani-MasDyer and @jack-charlesf £LoveIslandfinal … don’t they make a lovely couple … together all the way through £LoveIsland @itv2 +1.” And host Caroline Flack tweeted: “That was insanely brilliant ! We had so much fun! Thanks for all your messages…. Congrats to all the islanders and a massive thank you to the team for being TOTALLY BRILLIANT Over the past 8 weeks!  “I feel so so lucky to do this job. I love it so much.” After a few days of looking smitten with the pen salesman, the 21-year-old cooled it down as she told him that they could be “better as friends”. Although Jack initially agreed with Dani, the two soon rekindled their fledging romance and went from strength to strength before our very eyes.
