Love Island's Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea won by a mile as voting figures for final are released

A landslide victory for Amber and Greg

Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea pulled off the shock of the series when they beat Tommy Fury and Molly Mae-Hague to be crowned winners of this year's Love Island.

Scooping the £50k prize, no one was more surprised than Amber herself.

However, it has now been revealed that the Geordie lass and her Limerick-born love interest beat off their competition in an epic landslide victory.

And Amber says it would never have happened had she chosen old flame Michael over new man Greg.

"I don't think I would have won with Michael because people would have felt that I was stupid to go back to him after everything," she said after landing the win.

In stats obtained by Digital Spy, the series champions were shown to have secured almost double the votes of runners-up Tommy and Molly-Mae.

It was no mean feat, considering they had been together for less than two weeks as the Love Island final aired.

The figures might not be as impressive as last year's winners Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham, who scored a huge 79.66 per cent of the public vote.

Bringing up the rear this year, India and Ovie placed third with 18.21 per cent of the votes.

Fourth-placed Maura and Curtis – who experts predict "will be the first to split" – secured just 7.40 per cent of the vote.

However, Maura proved to be the biggest hit with telly bosses as she was revealed to be the first star of this year's show to secure a job on the small screen.

She's set to appear as an agony aunt on This Morning.
