After seven weeks, last night was the final night in the Love Island villa, and emotions were running high for the four remaining couples as they made their heartfelt declarations to one another.

However, just to make sure that the finalists were looking their best, the remaining female candidates, Olivia, Amber, Camilla and Gabby, were whisked into Palma to Francisco’s beauty and hair salon on the Paseo Mallorca, just 200 metres from the Bulletin newsroom.

There was also some light relief when two dance coaches descended on the villa to train the islanders up in some tango moves, which had a few disastrous results for Camilla and Jamie.

For some of the couples, the lesson proved fruitful in more ways than one, with Amber confessing: "The chemistry, the connection, really taking it seriously. I was turned on a bit actually."

Others fared less well though, with Camilla admitting: "Jamie and I had a couple of hiccups. He may have accidentally punched me in the stomach and I accidentally head butted him."

Marcel’s moves definitely got caught Gabby’s eye, but perhaps not in the way intended, as she remarked: "Marcel just kept thrusting. I’m like, mate, you’re definitely sexually frustrated."

This series has proved the most successful yet, pulling in average audiences of over two million every night, and it has apparently done wonders for Majorca.

Not only has the series showcased some of the island’s most beautiful attractions, according to some travel agents in the UK, it has boosted summer holiday bookings to the island with couples fancying their own Love Island experience. New figures have revealed that flights to Majorca , which has been on TV screens for weeks now, have skyrocketed, and it’s all thanks to Love Island.

According to lastminute.com, bookings to the island have seen an increase in 43 per cent between May and June - exactly the time the show started making headlines across the country.

For the record, Kem and Amber won.
