"I just love, I fell in love..."
Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan were crowned winners of the winter Love Island but not before Sanam accidentally dropped a huge confession about her partner.
After eight weeks of drama, viewers picked the couple as their champions.
The occasion marks the first time a Casa Amor contestant has entered the show and gone on to win.
The couple were speechless when Maya Jama announced the results.
But before their win, Sanam accidentally revealed she is in love with Kai.
Speaking to Maya, Sanam said: “For me, it was always Kai, like I always said he was my number one.
“Obviously, he is a very attractive guy but apart from the looks, I just love, I fell in love…”

Sanam then stopped and laughed at her comment while Kai looked at her with a stunned expression.
After composing herself, Sanam continued:
“Everything about him, I just loved it. I really didn’t think I was gonna be here. I’m going to cry.”
Fans loved the innocent moment, with many loving everything about Sanam.
The couple beat original couple Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins to win the £50,000 prize.
Tom Clare and Samie Elishi placed third in the competition, while airport security officer Shaq Muhammad and Tanya Manhenga were the first out.
After their win, Sanam told Maya: “I can’t believe it.”
The couple became fan favourites for their efforts to stay away from the drama inside the villa.
In their interview, Kai admitted his Love Island journey had been a “rollercoaster” but he is looking forward to treating Sanam away from the South African villa.
Revealing his future with Sanam, the PE teacher said:
“It’s been a rollercoaster.
“But literally, she blew me away. I think it’s the eyes. I always to her that it was the first conversation we had, she did the eyes.
“But she doesn’t do it anymore! After that first one, we just got closer and closer.”
“She doesn’t leave my side and I absolutely love her.
“In here, it’s amazing and you have so many people working around you, arranging the most amazing dates ever but I can’t wait to be able to put my time and effort into her and show her how amazing she is.
“On the outside, she’s going to be my girlfriend but I want that control.
“I’m gonna make it so special and I have told her so many times that she is gonna be my girlfriend on the outside. So keep a look out.”
