While Tommy and Curtis seemed to be close inside the villa, their friendship quickly fizzled on the outside following their short-lived spinoff show The Boxer& the Ballroom Dancer. Redditors theorized that their bromance was forced by producers to try and recreate a Chris and Kem type of situation.

Redditor dontreadmynamepplsays, "I don't think their relationship was fake exactly. I just think they're two people who would never be close friends if they weren't stuck in a villa around each other 24/7." Despite this, their friendship is one of the most well-known in Love Island history.

Jon Clarke and Josh Ritchie (Season One)

According tocryjolen, "Jon and Josh from season 1 started the bromance." It is certainly true that their friendship was the first of its kind in the rebooted series, in a season where friendships prevailed and Josh's platonic coupling with Lauren Richardson even made it to the final, to finish third behind Jon and Hannah Elizabethin second place.

Their bickering was just as iconic as the bromance itself and made the friendship feel more like a stereotypical relationship, as demonstrated by their spat during the baby challenge when Jon mishandled Josh's baby, igniting an argument that was more funny than fatal.

Finley Tapp and Callum Jones (Season 6)

During Casa Amor, Callum opened up to his friend about his feelings for new girl Molly Smith and how they compared with those he had for Shaughna Phillips back at the villa.Callum's trust and Finley'snon-judgemental advice formed the perfect foundation for their friendship to flourish.

Jack Fincham and Dr Alex George (Season 4)

Alex had a hard time finding a romantic connection during his time in the villa, but his bromance with Jack is proof that sometimes the closest connections are platonic. The pair gave each other what they needed: Jack was a comforting presence for Alex, while Alex was incredibly supportive of Jack's relationship with Dani Dyer.

Their friendship was particularly wholesome because they were not afraid to be physically affectionate. As a since deleted user says, "I loved S4 Dr. Alex, and Jack, they actually kissed on the cheek and hugged everytime anything exciting happened."

Jack Fowler, Wes Nelson and Josh Denzel (Season 4)

They seemed close from the jump."emrunneradds, "I also think Luke/Luke had a great bromance that went beyond being just funny; they truly supported each other and wanted each other to be happy."
