Love Island winners Kai and Sanam break their silence after beating Ron and Lana to take home the £50,000 prize pot in huge victory
Love Island winners Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan have broken their silence after their incredible victory on Monday night.
The couple, both 24, were left gobsmacked when they beat day one couple Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins to take home the £50,000 prize pot.
Just moments after being crowned winners of the 2023 winter series, their reactions were filmed in a video shared to the Love Island Instagram page.
The pair broke their silence with PE teacher Kai admitted they were ‘shook’ while social worker Sanam also shared her disbelief.
An overjoyed Kai said: ‘Honestly, I think we’re both so shook.’

While Sanam continued: ‘So shocked, I can’t believe it. I just want to thank every single person out there who has voted for us and supported us. If I could hug every single one of you I would. That’s how much love I feel.’
Kai then added: ‘I can’t comprehend it, it’s mad. Thank you everybody that voted for us. Truly, I’m so thankful.’
Their victory marked the first time a Casa Amor bombshell has entered the show and gone on to win in the show’s eight-year history.
Tom Clare, 23, and Samie Elishi, 22, placed third in the competition, while airport security officer Shaq Muhammad, 24, and Tanya Manhenga, 22 were the first out.
The couple were left speechless when host Maya Jama announced the results during the live final in South Africa on Monday.
After their win, Sanam told Maya, 28: ‘I can’t believe it’, while Kai was lost for words.
Before their win, Sanam accidentally revealed she is in love with Kai, while he told viewers to ‘watch this space’ about making the beauty his girlfriend in the outside world.
She said of their romance: ‘For me, it was always Kai, like I always said he was my number one. Obviously, he is a very attractive guy but I fell in love with everything. Everything about him, I just loved it. I really didn’t think I was gonna be here. I’m going to cry.’
Like every romance on the show, Kai and Sanam have had a rough ride – after the PE teacher’s former love interest Olivia Hawkins left furious when his head was turned in Casa Amor – as was hers.
But Kai’s decision to re-couple with Sanam has proven to be a worthy one as they have remained strong ever since.

In their interview, the PE teacher noted his journey on the show had been a ‘rollercoaster’ but he is looking forward to treating Sanam away from the glamour of the South African villa.
‘It’s been a rollercoaster,’ he said. ‘But literally, she blew me away. I think it’s the eyes. I always to her that it was the first conversation we had, she did the eyes. But she doesn’t do it anymore! After that first one, we just got closer and closer.
‘She doesn’t leave my side and I absolutely love her. In here, it’s amazing and you have so many people working around you, arranging the most amazing dates ever but I can’t wait to be able to put my time and effort into her and show her how amazing she is.
‘On the outside, she’s going to be my girlfriend but I want that control. I’m gonna make it so special and I have told her so many times that she is gonna be my girlfriend on the outside. So keep a look out.’
