Nathan and Cara win Love Island 2016 ITV

Love Island's most convincing lovers Nathan Massey and girlfriend Cara De La Hoyde won Monday night's (11 July) final and decided to split the £50,000 prize money in half. The live finale, presented by Caroline Flack, saw Cara lovingly share the cash with her new boyfriend, citing it the "easiest choice."

It has now been reported that the lovebirds could be taking home more than the original sum as many fans call for them to have their own spin-off show.

After being matched up on the first day six weeks ago and falling head over heels for one another, Nathan and Cara left Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland as runners up on the reality dating series on ITV2 – acquiring a huge 54% of the public vote.

They have enjoyed a smooth-sailing start to their romance in comparison to other couples in the villa, but still managed to entertain the audience, with Love Island viewers claiming they should have a show of their own.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "So apparently there's going to be a #LoveIsland spin off show that follows their relationships after the show! Please be true! #addicted" while another put: "Cara and Nathan need their own TV show. I would be all over that, they are epic together."

As other Love Island romances were deemed ersatz by the viewing public, Cara and Nathan's love was said to be the real deal, with one fan claiming: "in 20 years time we won't be reading Romeo and Juliet in school we'll be analysing Nathan and Cara instead."

The loved up couple have also revealed what they will be spending their winnings on, which includes one huge present for someone's mother. The pair thanked viewers for voting for them, with Cara humbly stating: "This is the first time I've heard Nathan speechless," before Nathan quipped: "Thank you for changing our lives."

Cara added: "We will not let you down. We're going to get married, we're going to have babies..." and revealed she'll be contributing towards a house deposit for her mother. She continued: "I can't wait to get home and now I can buy my mum a house and give her the deposit for it."

Nathan confessed that he will be treating his father to a "golfing trip."

Despite rumours circulating about Cara and Nathan obtaining their own reality series, ITV2 have announced an official spin-off called Love Island: Heading Home. The juicy series will air on Sunday 17 July at 9pm and will see the couples from the second series come face to face in the UK.
