It’s been nearly a month (crazy!) since Maya Jama crowned Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan winners of the Love Island winter series 2023. 

For weeks we were treated to daily updates on the cast, but now they’ve gone and left us with nothing but a gap in our hearts… and schedules. 

If you’re missing seeing good looking people fall in love, and let us into their lives and can’t wait for the next series, then there’s an alternative.

Many of the cast members from the years gone by have their own YouTube channels, where they offer intimate insights into their real world escapades.

If you want to know what happens when the villa closes its doors, then check out our top 10 Love Islander YouTube stars…

10. Dani Dyer

Jack Fincham and Dani were probably of the most popular couples in the nine series so far.

Dani’s natural likeability makes her a great candidate for YouTube, and her personality continues to translate well on camera. Her uploads provide an insight into her life as a mum to Santiago, and work opportunities.

Last year, she even packed the camera for a family trip to Majorca, which included plenty of cameos from dad Danny Dyer.

The reason Dani is in 10th place is because the consistency isn’t there – she hasn’t posted in over one year.

We need more updates in order for Dani’s YouTube to climb our charts. She’s now loved up with footballer Jarrod Bowen and expecting her second child.

9. Amy Hart

She gave us the iconic line: ‘I was coming back here to tell you I love you’ on Love Island, and her honesty is also prevalent on her channel.

Amy, who recently welcomed her first child Stanley, took her viewers along on an egg freezing journey with honest diary-style uploads.

Her passion – theatre – is obvious with regular backstage tours at her favourite shows including Wicked and Singin’ in the rain.

She’s further down the list as her last 13 videos have been holiday vlogs. We’re all for a bit of wanderlust escapism, but we also want some realism!

8. Gemma Owen

Upon leaving the villa Gemma wasted no time setting up a YouTube channel to continue to let fans into her life.

Her deadpan humor, and glamorous life (she is the daughter of Michael Owen after all) is showcased in her videos.

Due to her ambassadorship with Pretty Little Thing, Gemma regularly posts hauls of the brand, which gives her YouTube a bit of a shopping channel feel, but they are easy watching nonetheless.

7. Tanya Manhenga

Tanya is fresh from the villa, and so far has only uploaded one video to her new channel. We think it shows promise so we’re putting her high up our ratings – let’s hope she doesn’t let us down.

The former islander dishes on her Love Island experience in a Q&A with boyfriend Shaq Muhammad, hinting to viewers that everything wasn’t as it seems in Casa Amor.

Let’s hope she continues to spill the tea!

6. Davide Sanclimenti

Setting up a YouTube post-Love Island seems to be more of a popular choice for the female contestants, but Davide has gone against the grain and we’re grateful.

He started posting longform videos just three weeks ago, and has already shared five videos.

You’ll be happy to hear that Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu features prominently, with the couple bringing us along on their romantic trip to the Maldives. 

5. Tasha Ghouri

Tasha had the foresight to start a YouTube channel before her Love Island entrance.

In the debut video ‘Pack with me for Love Island 2022!!!’, we see Tasha dream about hopefully meeting a boyfriend. That became a reality for the star and Andrew Le Page even went on to become a prominent feature of her YouTube.

Uploads include couples’ Q&A, holiday vlogs and one hilarious video where Andrew attempts to do Tasha’s makeup.

Tasha also opens up about her ‘superpower’ cochlear implant, and uploads regular behind the scenes videos of her big photo shoots and campaigns. 

4. Chloe Burrows

Chloe keeps things short and sweet, with a lot of her videos under 15 minutes in length.

Within the channel is a mini-series called ‘Girl Talk’ where followers can write questions to Chloe, who will give advice based on her own life experiences. Topics have included dating apps, cheating, toxic friendships and being friends with exes.

Chloe also shares videos of her daily life from post-therapy chats, to being flown to Miami for a Magic Mike premiere. You never know quite what you’re going to get with Chloe. 

3. Mary Bedford

Mary is a Manchester IT girl, who lives her life to the full attending snazzy events and regularly flying off to cool destinations – most recently Milan, Switzerland and Barcelona.

You get two for the price of one on this YouTube channel as Mary’s best friend (and travel buddy) is fellow Love Island alumni Ellie Brown, who regularly pops up on camera.

Her videos inspire you to want to go out-out, and she keeps it real with hangover segments filled with chaotic stories from the night before.

2. Millie Court

When Millie wasn’t a reality star, she was a fashion buyer at ASOS. She puts her expertise to good use with a ‘Fashion diaries’ mini-series, where she interviews industry professionals and shows us how to put together winning ensembles.

Millie isn’t a one-trick YouTube pony either, and also has gotten pretty good at vlogging her daily life, and filming fun videos with housemate Chloe Burrows and bestie Lucinda Strafford.

Fans wanting more details on her love life will be very happy here with Millie giving date debriefs, and even soft launching a new man in her latest video!

1. Molly-Mae Hague

Long before she walked into the Love Island villa, Molly-Mae set up a YouTube channel.

The fact that she’s been doing this a long time is super clear in her polished and regular content, and this is why we’re crowing her YouTube Queen.

Molly-Mae has somehow managed to still remain relatable, while living in a multi-million pound house, and very much knows what the fans want and gives it to them.

Her 1.78 million subscribers, get everything from cute couple challenges with boyfriend Tommy Fury, to deep sit down chats about her struggles with motherhood, as well as makeup and hair tutorials.
