Love Island: Whitney and Lochan fans are left outraged by live final mistake as they insist winning couple was revealed before official result
Love Island viewers were outraged after a huge blunder saw Whitney and Lochan’s Best Bits being skipped during Monday night’s final.
Fans have been left furious after the mistake, with many suggesting they accidently showed the winner’s edit instead.
Jess Harding and Sammy Root were crowned winners of the summer series, beating Whitney Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki to the 50k prize money.
However before the winner was announced, host Maya Jama chatted to both pairs about their journeys on the show.
After Whitney and Lochan discussed their time in the villa, Maya introduced the couple’s best bits, however instead of the exclusive pair’s highlights being played it was a compilation of Jess and Sammy’s journey.

A third ranted: I’m sorry but this has been one of the worst finales of love island, mistakes showing the best bits and then the winners are JESS AND SAMMY!!! How did they beat Whitney (an icon this series) and Lochan?? Imo Jess and Sammy were the weakest couple in the final!’
A fourth chimed: ‘They didn’t even show the best bits like Whitney made this season’.
Some fans believe the mistake gave a big giveaway that Jess and Sammy were about to be crowned as winners.
