The declarations
Dani's declaration to Jack:
"Jack, when I first entered the villa eight weeks ago, I never imagined that in a million years I would have met someone as special as you. "From our first date together on the beach, to our trip in a hot air balloon, we have already made so many special memories, and I can't wait for even more. "I have had the summer of my life in here and I owe so much of that to you, Jack."
Jack's declaration to Dani:
"You are everything that I've ever wanted in a girl. Getting to know you and fall in love with you has been one of the most wonderful things to ever happen in my life. "Firstly, you are an absolute sort. You are so caring and selfless, you have such a beautiful smile. "When I see you happy, it makes me feel a way that I've never felt about someone before."
Wes described the last eight weeks as "the best summer ever"
Earlier in the episode, Wes Nelson, one of the few contestants to have lasted for the duration of the series, said: "This has been the best summer ever. "This has been the best experience ever. And I've met the best girl ever. It's just been one bundle of the best."

Does Love Island have a diversity problem?
'A long, hot summer'
When presenter Caroline Flack tweeted ahead of the launch that it was going to be a "long, hot summer", nobody knew just how true that would turn out to be. The UK has been in the grip of a heatwave during the eight-week series, in a summer that also saw President Trump's UK visit, the Thai cave rescue and World Cup fever.

Through it all, there has been Love Island - a series that has been a consistent success for ITV2, breaking the channel's all-time record ratings and frequently attracting more then five million viewers per episode (across all platforms and catch-up services).Jack and Dani got together in the first episode and became the only couple to stay together for the duration of the series. This evidently became a little boring for producers - who threw in Jack's ex-girlfriend to shake things up a bit, prompting more than 2,600 viewers to complain to broadcasting regulator Ofcom.The series has also seen lie detector tests, contestants who had never heard of Brexit and the inevitable debate about body shape diversity.Contestants we lost along the way included Samira - who exited so she could be with her evicted boyfriend Frankie - and Niall, who left early in the series for "personal reasons", later revealing that he has Asperger's Syndrome.Evenings won't be the same without it. The big questions are whether the winning couple will be able to stay in the spotlight - and stay together - and whether audiences will come back for more next year.
