Love Island 's voting figures for the 2023 summer final have been announced, just hours after a surprising couple were crowned the winners by host Maya Jama.

Jess Harding and Sammy Root finished first out of the final four during Monday night's live final, leaving many viewers divided. They had beaten the two favourite couples Whitney Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki and Ella Thomas and Tyrique Hyde to be victorious.

Sammy and Jess were overjoyed to find out they had won the public vote and thus bagged £50,000 to share. It had been tipped to be between two other couples, while Molly Marsh and Zach Noble finished in fourth place.

Now the voting figures have been revealed, and it's clear Jess and Sammy stormed to victory. According to the figures released, Jess and Sammy bagged 34.57% of the whole vote.

Meanwhile, favourites Whitney and Lochan got 26.85% of the vote, closely followed by Ella and Tyrique with 24.21%. Molly and Zach trailed behind with just 14.37% of the public vote. This means Whitney and Lochan were quite behind Jess and Sammy, but were close to finishing in third place had Ella and Tyrique received just three percent more.

It comes as it was revealed the winter edition had been 'axed' for next year, with this the second time the winter series has been dropped by ITV. It's not confirmed yet whether the series will return in 2025.

An All Stars series is said to be in the works, with this replacing the winter edition next January. Instead of a new batch of singles looking for love, it will be some familiar faces trying their luck again.

ITV have not confirmed the news to The Mirror, but they did tell us Love Island "returns to ITV2 and ITVX in 2024". It means viewers wanting to see new cast will have to wait until next summer, with the series thought to be going ahead as planned.

Meanwhile, the winter All Stars edition is said to be in the process of signing up stars, while the location could be the villa in South Africa like the usual winter edition. Names could include Maura Higgins, Megan Barton-Hanson and Georgia Steel.

But it isn't just the UK stars from the past who could be set for round two. It's reported contestants from previous shows filmed in the US and Australia could also be down for the ride.

A source told the MailOnline : "The winter series of Love Island has been axed for a second time… viewers just aren't interested in watching the show twice a year. It will be replaced by a brand new All Stars series, which will feature former Islanders who are still looking for love.

"In terms of iconic Love Island stars who are now happily married including the likes of Olivia Attwood, producers are looking into cameo appearances so that they still involve fan favourites from the years gone by."

Love Island 2023 is available to watch now on ITVX.
