Bicester girl Chloe Burrows last night came in second place in the Love Island 2021 final.

The financial services marketing executive and Bicester native, 25, scored second place with partner Toby Aromolaran, 22, who is a semi-professional footballer.

The pair were beaten by Millie Court and Liam Reardon, who were crowned the winners of Love Island 2021.

Teddy Soares and Faye Winter came in third while Kaz Kamwi and Tyler Cruickshank placed fourth.

Laura Whitmore hosted the live final from the garden of the ITV2 show’s Mallorcan villa while a cheering audience looked on.

During their final interviews, Toby joked that describing his relationship with Chloe as a ‘massive journey’ was an ‘understatement’ after the pair broke up and then got back together during the series.

What happened during the final?

The final episode of the series, which featured nearly 40 islanders attempting to find love in the villa, also included clips of the finalists’ last day together.

During their final morning in the villa, the finalists were woken by a text which announced they would be taking part in a salsa dance class ahead of the winners being announced that evening.

A second text told the female contestants they would be leaving the villa to visit a spa.

The male contestants wrote declarations of love to their partners, with Toby worrying his letter would be ‘so soppy’.

Later that day, the boys wore black tie to a summer ball event in the villa garden.

The girls arrived one by one and the group enjoyed glasses of champagne before reading each other their declarations.

Toby used his speech to ask Chloe to be his girlfriend.

Love Island’s 2019 winner Amber Gill praised Toby for using his declaration to confirm their relationship.

 

She wrote on Twitter: “Who would have thought TOBY would ask the best way out of everyone!”
