Love Island theory of how you can tell who will win the show has been correct SEVEN times

It was right last night!


Sammy and Jess have been crowned the winners of Love Island 2023, and while everyone is split with the decision, many people are happy with the outcome.

Their fate was sealed when viewers noticed the pair were stood to the left of Maya Jama, proving an old theory correct of who would win the show. While the last two seasons the winners have been to the right of the presenter, Love Island went back to its old way during last night’s final.

The well-known Love Island theory is that whoever wins the show is stood on a particular side of the host, often the left side.

The theory goes back all the way to season one, with Jess Hayes and Max Morley kicking it off. The only other years the theory was incorrect was during 2019 when Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea won and were stood on the right of Caroline Flack, when Ekin-Su and Davide won and when Kai and Sanam won.

Still not convinced? Here is every time the winners of Love Island were on the left side of the host before they were crowned the champions:
