The stars of the first ever Winter Love Island have touched down in the UK.
The Islanders, including winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp, have jetted into London from South Africa after six weeks in the villa.
Runners-up Luke Trotman and Siannise Fudge were also spotted landing at London's Heathrow Airport this morning.
The loved-up pair walked hand-in-hand as they headed through the terminal after their long-haul flight.
They were all smiles as they made their home way, and looking surprisingly bright and refreshed after their long journey.
The couple were dressed in their comfiest clothes for the flight, with Siannise opting for grey joggers and a cream hoody.
She protectively carried the silver princess crown that Luke T made for her when he asked her to be his girlfriend.
Clearly it was too precious to her to stick in her suitcase and risk it getting ruined.
Luke T wore matching grey joggers with a white T-shirt and baby pink hoody and matching cap.
Finn and Paige looked madly in love as they cosied up for the cameras.
Finn was pictured throwing his arm around his girlfriend and pulling her in close as she gazed up lovingly into his eyes.
Paige dressed for the lengthy journey in light-coloured jogging pants and a black hoody, clutching a designer handbag.
Finn wore an all-black outfit as he headed back into colder climates after weeks in the South African sun.
After coming out on top and bagging the £50,000 cash prize, the couple, who plan to move in together, confidently strode through the terminal holding hands.
They were joined by Luke Mabbott and Demi Jones, who locked lips as they left the airport.
Demi braved the UK weather by touching down in a thigh-skimming black dress and flip flops, keeping off the brunt of the chill with a white denim jacket, while Luke M went for comfy sweats.
As they posed up outside the airport, they couldn't resist giving each other a kiss.
Jess Gale and Ched Uzor looked just as loved-up as they arrived at Heathrow.
Jess gazed up at her man as he wrapped his arm around her waist.
She opted for comfy ripped jeans and a black T-shirt for the flight, while he stuck to wearing shorts, pairing them with a matching T-shirt.
The pair also couldn't resist locking lips as they were snapped outside the terminal.
The scenes were rather tame compared to previous years, when returning Islanders have been mobbed by fans.
After past series of the hit show, scores of fans have been waiting at the airport with hand-made signs declaring their love.
People have waited for hours, desperate to get a selfie with the reality stars.
But this time, the arrival appeared to be a lot more peaceful.
The stars are heading back home after Sunday's emotional final, which paid tribute to late host Caroline Flack.
Caroline was found dead at her London home on February 15 after taking her own life. She was 40.
Sunday's final saw new host Laura Whitmore choke up as she spoke about the difficult week since losing her friend.
She said the final was dedicated to Caroline, who "loved Love Island and loved love".
Viewers were left in tears as a montage of clips of Caroline on the show, and spin-off Aftersun, over the years were shown.
And that wasn't the only thing to fill people's tear ducts on Sunday.
Fans were also left sobbing as Finn broke down in tears as he told Paige he loves her for the first time, and as Luke T professed his feelings for girlfriend Siannise.
It comes after Paige, the ex-girlfriend of singer Lewis Capaldi, laughed off his suggestions that she should give him a cut of her prize money.
The Someone You Loved hitmaker has jokingly said he felt he deserved a percentage of the £50,000 prize money if Paige were to win, because their relationship had helped raise her profile.
Sadly for Lewis, Paige is planning to pay off her debts and put a deposit down on a house, and won't be handing any of the cash over to her ex.
She even joked that she'd considered keeping it for herself rather than splitting it with beau Finn.
Speaking after her win, she said: "That’s just Lewis, it comes as no surprise he said that.
"But I can’t give him any money because once I pay off my debts there’ll be nothing left."
