Fans went into overdrive when Sanam seemed to accidentally drop the L word in the live final. Discussing her Love Island experience with host Maya Jama, Sanam opened up on her feelings for Kai, but was similtaneously surprised at the words that came out.

"Obviously he's an attractive guy, Apart from the looks, I loved, I fell in love –," she said, before gasping and raising her hand to her mouth. An excited maya replied: "What was that?"

Kai appeared elated by the shock admission and gave Sanam a hug. The 24 year-old continued to heap praise on her man: "You're going to make me cry."

Kai was an original Love Islander who's Love Island journey saw him move around the block a bit. He first coupled up with Tanyel Revan, before recoupling with Anna-May Robey, Samie Elishi and Olivia Hawkins.

Kai was with Olivia when the two headed off for Casa Amor. It was here that Kai met and decided to recouple with Sanam. The decision left Olivia furious - despite also choosing to recouple with Maxwell.

After finding each other in Casa Amor, Kai and Sanam remained tight - with the Mancunian proving to be smitten with the Bedford beauty.
